Evo 8 Wont Start No Clue... HELP!

Hey guys,

I have an evo 8 I drove over to my friends a few days ago and after getting back in she just wouldn't start. No sound at all when I turn the key, all lights come on just like if she was running and I can pop the clutch to start her if needed.

Haven't had any mods done in at least 8 months but I did have the battery relocated to the trunk about 2 months ago (maybe something came lose?)

I originally thought it was the starter so I replaced that but still isn't turning over or making any noise.
Also car seams to wanna stall out when at a stop, have to keep on the gas the whole time.

any ideas would be greatly appreciated thanks!

If the lights come on, the battery is hooked up. Did you check the battery if its still good? Maybe it has enough power to light up the bulbs but not enough to crank ? Also check the fuses for the starter .

If its wanting to stall during a stop then check the throttle body, IAC and look at all the vacuum lines that may have popped off or developed cracks/leaks.

I would say start troubleshooting with the above and see if you find anything.

Check your starter fuse. It's a fuseable link that used to be on the battery terminal. You may have it wrapped up depending on how you relocated battery.
also while your at it check your other motor fuses
