What is the easyest way to make the starter work?

Reason I ask is, because I try to do the compression test, but this time I'm on my own, and I can't physically press the tester into the spark plug holes, and turn the key.

what would be the most simple way to start the starter, with some wire and a press button?
What points do I connect, or where's the relay that needs triggering?

Not too sure if it will work, but in the round connector for the engine wiring, there is a black wire with a red stripe which IIRC is the starter wire, 12v+ down that wire may do it, but wouldn't want it reversing up and going back into the car, so you may want to cut the wire and rejoin it when done.

Otherwise, wait for someone who can help :(

Run a large screwdriver across the terminal of the starter motor - Will make it start :D

Make sure u toutch both terminals at the same moment, or it wont work for obvious reasons :p
