The fuse mentioned before is this one:

Tire Automotive tire Crankset Hood Motor vehicle


It's in the battery box, in a black case wrapped around the starter cable. This fuse is just for the starter and has no effect on wipers or any other system. It may pass a visual inspection but still be bad. That pretty fuse up there? Dead.

Jumper it then turn the key. I bet your car will start. If it doesn't, you're looking at a new starter.

Located behind the left rear wheel, right next to the clutch actuator.

What I did was take the ends of a jumper cable and hook them up to the posts of the fuse. My car now starts. :) The old fuse was passing power through, but apparently not enough to do anything but make it click.
