Re: Trouble starting

Unless you bought a bad starter relay I can only guess that it might be your ignition switch.

Re: Trouble starting

I agree with BigNorm but one time I acidentally torqued the nuts too tightly and actually cracked the solenoid.

Good luck,

Re: Trouble starting

Make sure your battery cables and connections are in good condition.
Also, check the wiring/connections at the starter motor itself.

Re: Trouble starting

Check the condition of the wire going to the starter.If it's stiff and the wires look brittle on the end,replace it.The zone sells em cheap.Went thru a starter and a solenoid before I figured mine out.

Re: Trouble starting

If you have a volt meter,turn the key to the start position and check for voltage at the small wire on the solenoid.If you have 12 volts,the ignition switch is good.Then check both sides of the solenoid.If your getting 12 volts across and it still won't start,got to be the wire going to the starter.If you don't have a volt meter, get one,They come in handy.
