Question about Cars & Trucks
Hey my name is Louis. i have a small problem regarding my starter motor on a Mk1 gholf. i have refurbished it and put everything back as to where i took it of. problem i have now is that as soon as i connect the wires the salenoid gets extremely hot and it does not want to work at all. iam thinking theres a grounding problem because only live wires would cause the extreme heat. Could someone please assist me into telling me what to do.
Not a ground problem, the starter grounds to the block when you bolt it on. You put a wire in the wrong place, allowing the current to flow through the solenoid and ground to the block without the load from the component. I would suggest you take it to a starter and alternator repair shop and they should be able to figure out what went wrong, if you haven't already fried the wires.
