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

About once every 2 to 3 weeks car won't start. Battery appears dead. Then next day fine. Battery holding charge, not starter either. Baffe

If the battery appears dead when the fault occurs, it probably is the battery (or pos/neg leads) batteries are devious and take pleasure in appearing fully charged. Eliminate further by replacing battery, buy or borrow. Only other explanation is a short to negative on particular day, check starter motor cables. Best of luck.

I have a avensis gs vvt-i 1800cc.................starting problem

need to check the battery charge if it is within the range of its starting capacity. if not, charge it or replace it. and need also to check the alternator if it is working. it may drain the battery after start and not charge fully. low battery charge, engine doesn't turn.

Hyundai Sante Fe Imobiliser problem?

can you hear the starter click at all take a hammer and tap on the starter if that works then you know the starter is bad, if you are comfortable enough take out the battery and the starter and take them to your local autozone have them tested just because a battery is fully charged doesn't mean that it doesn't have a dead cell or 2. They can test the starter also

Replaced battery. still would not start. Cleaned treminal of all corrision. cranked fine. however 1 day later would not start. jump started . drove a couple of miles but when I turned on lights, engine...

Sounds like a bad alternator. Drained your battery and when you turned on the lights it took all the power left in your battery. When you drain a battery down that far, they are real hard to jump, and coupled with the alternator, the car is not producing enough current to start and stay running.

I would take the alternator off and take it to oyur local auto parts store to be tested. If bad, replace it and charge the battery fully before starting. Then check voltage at battery with motor running. Should be 13.2 -14 Volts DC. If not, you may have a bad battery cable or blown fusible link. (especially that if the alternator tests good).....Mike
