Exclamation Peugeot 106 won't start , replaced battery

Hi
My Peugeot 106 1.5 diesel 2000 was working fine and now will not start , I th bought it may have been the battery and bought a new one and connected it but the car will still not turn over or start? Is this the starter motor and is there anything I can try before I take the car to the garage
Any help appreciated
Thanks

1) Are there any lights on the dash?

2) Does the starter not cut in at all??

3) Have you tried a bump start...

Okay, I'm surprised the bump start didn't do anything....

Try giving the starter a wallop with a mallet or something ( in case its jammed ) and if this doesn't work, try putting the car in 3rd with the engine off and rocking the car back and forth, it'll be a bit lumpy when you rock it...

Hopefully either of these will get the car going and then point to a starter fault.

If not, then it could be electrical/bad earth somewhere which is a bit out of my depth...

Hi , have tried to bump start the car again and it has now started and seems to be running okay , would you recommend still getting a new starter motor fixed or was it simply jammed thanks

Running ok but is it also starting ok ?

If the later then it may simply be a bad connection on starter or battery wiring rather than a faulty starter.

It seems it may have been a one-off then....

I was thinking bad earth but as you have dashboard lights, but no starter I was kinda hoping it was the starter at fault.

Has this happened before? Was the starter getting slow and struggling to turn the engine over..??

I would suggest parking on a hill - facing downwards - for a while until the starter regains your trust...
