Question about 1989 Suzuki Sidekick
After running the car for about an hour and after shutting the engine off, it won't start until after it has cooled off for an hour or two. I have checked the bat. and starter connections. I am thinking the selinoid ?
I am assuming it will not turn over if that is the case then it is the selinoid. You can check this by taking a pair of plyers and touching it to both of the large bolts coming out of the selinoid, One has the battery cable and the other has a metal bracket that runs in to the starter. if you touch them with both metal tips of the plyers the starter should engage and turn the enging over if it does not check to see if you are getting power to it. This vehicle has a funny looking fuse in the power distribution center located under the hood behind the battery. That fuse is a "slow blow" fuse and will act up from time to time and cause, at best, odd problems.
