well, a little background first.
the car has been stumbling a bit lately, but it smooths out at WOT and i thought it might be due to a dirty MAF. heading home after school, the CEL light came on. i pulled over, unplugged the MAF reset the idle, and it ran fine, but the CEL was still on. after i got home i tried starting it to go back out, but it would not start. alarm chirps, all the lights on the dash come on but it sounds like the starter is not engaging. i just had the starter replaced not 2 months ago.
any ideas on what could be causing this?

thanks
matt

I'd read the codes first. It'd give us a better place to start, instead of blindly guessing at what it might be. :thumb:
