Default 2000 PT won't turn over

Hi My 2000 PT not been used for a couple of months. I re Charged the Battery but it will not start. The usual lights come on the dash and a relay in the box click when I try to start it (foot on clutch) but the starter does not turn. If I remove the solanoid connector on the starter motor and use a Jumper the the battery she turns over.
Can someone give me an idea where to start looking.

Welcome to the Forum. If this is an original battery, it is time to replace the battery.

you have to replace the battery and your problem is solved, the pcm or the car computer will test the battery and will not allow the engine to start if it isnt in good condition !!

happened to me too and jump start didnt work !! once battery replaced everything is fine since

Thanks for your fast responce. I have fitted a New Battery today. If I switch on the Ignition the jump the solanoid terminal to the battery + she bursts into life but will not start off the key. Checked the relay it has continuity when switched. Now suspect the Clutch Switch. Is there anyway of by passing it. ? Silly Idea anyway, I don't know how I have managed without one for so long !!!!!.
