No crank

Hi all,

got a problem on my (I know its not an M3...) manual 1996 328.

I have a non crank issue which came about very randomly. So far, I have bypassed EWS, tested fuel pump (primes with ignition with EWS plugged back in), have put brand new battery, still nothing...

Now, the part that's bothering me, I removed the starter last night, as that's the only other thing I could think that is at fault. Put it on my bench to test it and the fucker works

Before anyone says, I did try it in situ, put a live direct to it and bridged it to engage but nothing, done this before and after refitting the starter and still nothing.

Anyone else have any other ideas?

Are you even getting a click from it, or anything? I had one that would spin and it ended up being the fuel pump relay. Don't think that's the case here, but it's a place to start.
