You would think that if the car is in neutral that it would attempt to start. I can see if the car was in gear and the pump was unable to develop pressure and put the clutch in neutral as it normally would to start it??? Needless to say, I appreciate the advice and I guess what I will do is find the relay wherever it is and see about either getting a new one or swapping a like kind relay from somewhere else assuming that there is another similar one. It could very be that the fluid level is low and seriously old. I have never changed it or looked at it and it was on my list to do, so maybe I get a bit lucky. I will call it lucky, and it needs filling and changing / adding fluid??"?If you don't hear the pump when you open the door after the car has been sitting for a half hour then either the pump or the relay has failed, most likely the pump.
