Peugeot 206 starter motor not turning

Ok ... with a fully charged battery the car is fine for one or two days, then you go to start it and the starter motor doesn't turn. The battery still seems fine ...headlights bright etc. I have put a voltmeter across battery with engine running and get 14volts??? ...this drops to about 13.2 volts with lights and other electricals running. I don't think it's a battery.charging problem. Is the starter motor faulty? .... brushes worn or out of round rotor?
(Please note i had to select Peugeot 405 and year 2005 to be able to post this, the car is in fact a 2000 year 206 1.1L petrol)

Put your voltmeter on the little cable that goes to the starter and check the volts there will turning the key to the start position if you have power ...yes its the starter...if you dont then it could be the starter relay

Low battery....you can damage your ecu if you continue to use it. Open the bonnet and charge the battery with a external charger and after charging battery check the alternator whether its charging the battery.

Peugeot 206 2001 petrol intermitant fault with starter motor


If the starter motor is sticking, it can draw a large current. If there is power down to the starter motor while its not starting then the starter is faulty. You can test this with a multimeter or just a test bulb connected to the smaller of the two wires on the starter, while cranking.Check you have a good earth from the battery to the engine. If the bulb lights up but no engine cranking then its a faulty starter.
