Fiesta won't crank

Just had a 2008 Ford Fiesta brought in with no engine start. Battery was 9 volts, replaced battery, checked Diagnostics for any codes - only low battery faults found, still won't crank with key. Key locks and unlocks remotely, checked all the fuses I can find, no relays clicking with crank, its a mystery - can you help please?

So you are saying that all dash lights are on,the battery is good, but the engine will not turn over at all?

So would suggest that you check that you are getting feed to the starter motor,and if not trace back from there, ie starter solenoid back to ignition switch.

You may need to get a wiring diagram to help in this process.
