    i have a 90 hatch with a b16a swap that recently began to not crank anymore. all i could hear was a little noise from the starter but no turning or cranking of the engine when I would turn the key. so I replaced the battery and still nothing. then I bought another used starter and it started up on the first try. i drove it around all day and no problems. i probably started it up 5-6 times with no problem.. but this morning i went to start it up and it was back to that little noise from the starter again and no cranking when I turned the key. so i jumped the hatch`s battery with my other car and it started up immediately.:confused:.. the hatch doesnt have a radio or anything im leaving on, so what could it be ?

    Make sure all your grounds are good and clean. Also do you have a CEL? My bet would be that you have a bad ground and it isnt charging.
