check the power and ground wires going to and coming from the battery and alternator and starter. make sure they are connected well. also bend them. if they are really stiff they are junk and need to be replaced. also if they appear to be melted they shorted out and need to be replaced. if the starter just clicks it isnt getting enough power. have some1 try to crank the car while you look under the hood to look for sparks in case a wire isnt connected good lol. if all else fails just get more juice to it with another car or two and some jumper cables and see if that does it. the starter clicks so its getting SOME power

EDIT: if you get the car running from jumping it off directly cut the car off and try to crank it up by itself with no jumper cables or anything. if it starts it might just be a bad alternator. if it doesnt want to start its a bad battery. a power wire coming from the battery thats grounded out could cause a constand draw on the battery pulling it down as well.

I had that same problem after i had the manual swap done an it was the battery, hook another car up to the battery an give it a jump if it starts it's the battery if not it's something else.

Already tried getting a jump from a V6 Escape (same exact battery as foci). I even swapped batteries and mine started the Escape right up no problems. Also used that Escape to push my car fast enough to try and pop the clutch in 3rd... No luck at all. Going back out to put everything back together and test some more.

I hope you get it running soon! It sucks when your car is down. I will be at the meet, but I am not sure if Rattles will. I am having my second surgery on Tuesday, and will not be able to drive. I have some friends going though. Someone will be picking me up.
