more starter issues!
Posted 11 December 2003 - 05:20 PM
I put the used starter in the Brat, and it worked great.
Now, that one is doing the exact same thing. gives one single click, and won't take a direct batt to starter jump either.
Is this a coincidence that this one crapped out the exact same way after working twice, or could something else be at work here? (killing the starters)
Any thoughts are appreciated. I still have 1 untried used starter, but I'm hesitant to use it for fear that underlying issues are killing 'em. Help!

Too cold now to do too much tearing apart anyway, though.

try to clean the battery post connection, and make sure it's tight.
also make sure the ground wire from the engine to the body/negative post has all good connections....

However, being as the old batt was pretty weak, (had to jump it after the first starter install) I just bought a new battery thinking that was the problem now, what with the deep cold and all. It wasn't. And as such, I know the post connections are tight & clean. Hopefully, It's the ground, but I have a feeling I'm putting the other starter in tomorrow. (I'll disassemble & clean the one I remove.) Wish me luck, we need to pick up the X-mas tree in it this weekend!
