    Default Car won't start after battery reconnected

    I just put the gearbox in and reconnected everything and now it won’t start. Clicking noise from behind the battery and sounds as if the fuel pump is on. Plus, the clock display is gibberish.
    Any ideas? Immobiliser?

    It's a 2000 306 1.4.

    Clicking noise when you try to start it up?

    If so could be the starter motor - Have you tried rolling the car forward to make sure its not jammed?

    Crisis number three averted. It was a loose ground trapped beneath the battery box. Got her on and she started, but now the new box won’t go into reverse. I think the pup who sold me the gearbox gave me a 206 one. I had to swap a few parts over. He even wrote 2000 306 on this box when I brought back the first one he gave me.
    Anyway, I think the linkage may be a bit too short. She just gets into reverse and slips out. I have the old linkage from the other box and it’s a half inch longer. I hope she’ll do the trick if I can get her on.
    Thanks for the help guys.
