get a seperate voltmeter and attach to ur battery to double check coz it sounds like it could be something else. Check: if you hear the fuel pump prime? if there is spark goin to the leads/plugs? could be a fuel or spark problem so give them a check mate

yeah could be mate, but check if there is spark at the leads, by pulling a lead off a spark plug and chuckin a screwdriver (rubber handle) in the lead and crankin the engine, if no spark then thats ur problem. See how that goes mate but u culd b right 2, or even culd b the engine fuse (doubt it)?

Ahh you don't achieve spark until the car cranks. so testing for spark on a car thats not cranking is pointless.

Could be a cactus battery, ie enough to run the fuel pump and what not but the starter actually takes a fair bit of draw. you may hear it go click click click, or nothing at all. If you can get a jump and it fires thats a pretty solid sign of a f**k battery. could also be the solenoid on the starter itself, get under there and give it a bit of motivation with the form of a lead hammer or similar. if its the solenoid there is a good chance this will give it a touch of extra life, if so I would be getting a BF starter and putting that in pretty quick.

Starter failing to kick are one of few things.

Battery not enough charge
starter is cactus or on its way to being cactus
fuse has popped
break down in the wiring somewhere.

check the first 3 things before moving on to the wiring side of it all.

if these all appear fine, time to start looking at the smartsheild on the car. BEM's can get dry joints. not 100% sure where they are in the AU's, but it would not be the first time I have seen a BEM of any series being the culprit.

yeah BF starter is smaller and provides more torque, same or similar price to an AU start.

Throw a multimeter on your battery to eliminate that issue as well. and see if a few love taps on your existing starter spur it into any life.
