Hi,

My car struggled a bit yesterday morning to start. This morning it tried briefly but now all I get is the ignition lights and no attempt to start when i turn the key.
It will start with a bump in 2nd.
The battery is fully charged.

Any ideas? I'm thinking starter motor stuck maybe? I've given it a tap with a hammer but still no good.

are there any common faults with connections??

Thanks in advance

Any words of wisdom before I rip out the old starter motor?

For you professional mechanics does the symptoms sound like the starter motor?

Anyone???

Cheers

:)

Before pulling starter out check its connections and the gearbox earth. Also check power to starter solinoid (can use a bulb to earth).

There are some issues with starter motor fuse blowing on various models when the starter gets old (sure there was an offical upgrade to a 25 amp fuse from 20 amp)
