I would double check the battery terminal ends or just replace them with new ones. Because from what you have said it sounds like your not getting enough amps to crank the engine. Usually that's because the battery terminals are loose or corroded or bad.

How do I fix the heater switch on a rover 25 1.4i Y reg

** First check the Fuse 19, 20A, in passenger fuse box (see manual- under steering wheel). then earthing connection E5 (Front LH inner wing.
**electricat connections are most accessable at Motor resistor bank, behind glove box (released by 8mm 2 bolts underneath ) Resistor pack in front of blower motor, 2x 6mm bolts. flick or squeese electrical relaese tab**

** Check the state of the motor speed resistor pack/ prone to resistor/resistor wire failure , which is behind the glove box,

The motor circuit is Green, live feed , to motor, slate black to motor speed selector (resistor pack), Output (slate or Yellow or Green or pink And Black) then Heater selector switch to earth (black).
- The feed from the motor is Slate/ Black wire. It pass through (or bypasses) resistor bank which limits the current through) the motor thus controlling. the speed. This has 4 connection slate grey from motor.

**Check 12v feed on blower Motor connector Green +ve , Slate Black to Earth. if ok, short Slate/black(Sl/Blk) to earth motor should run.

-Slate/B black (S/B) via No restor to switch, pos 4,

-Yellow/ Black (Y/B) via High resistor to Switch Pos 3
--Green/ Black (G/B) via Medium resistor to Switch Pos 2.
--Pink/ Black (K/B) via Xresistor to Switch Pos x.

From heater selector all final connection to earth are via to Black wire to earth on ineer LH inner wing.

2004 Mini Cooper automatic.Car won't turn over. Battery indicating 14 volts using multi-meter. I get a single click when I turn the key, then nothing. I suspect bad solenoid. Not sure how to test/check...

if the clicking noise is from the starter,you can tap the starter while someone tries to start the car.if it turns over and starts then the starter motor will need to be replaced.if you can get to the starter,using the multi-meter you can check to make sure the solenoid is getting battery voltage at the wire that gets voltage when the key is turned.if you do and you have battery voltage at the larger wire on the starter then this will also indicate the stater motor has a bad spot in it and will have to be replaced.the clicking noise is usually an indication that the solenoid is working passing the voltage to the starter armature but the starter is drawing too much amperage to turn the motor over.either way its recommended to replace the complete unit as if the solenoid is bad the motor itself will usually go bad shortly after.

yes the fuse is most likely for more than one thing though,the bottle and motor could be under the inner wing and my money is on a faulty motor ,sometimes they will work when tapped on the body of the motor ,but getting to it is a major job ,removing the plastic inner wing

Cannot remove headlamp cluster from Ford focus c max to replace the bulbs. I have followed the instructions in the book i.e. I have loosened the screw st the top and the two clips at the bottom

hi you will find there is a small bracket that also secures the h/lamp assy it is attached to the inner wing between the head lamp and inner wing if you feel? or use a small mirror? you will need a 10mm socket/extension/+wratchet to fit the bolt which connects the inner wing bracket to the h/lamp bracket then lamp will come out ps you can replace h/lamp and indicator bulbs without removal of lamp itself

I have a 1987 mercedes 300E that stops running while driving or sitting at a light, all electrical still on, what could it be?

I had this once, get the car running and turn the ignition key very slightly and very lightly from side to side while the engine is at idle, this may show up a faulty ignition switch if the engine cuts when you're turning it.
Also the ecu on the nearside inner wing may be at fault, see if you can find a friend with the same car to try swapping over to his first to test as they are expensive is this isn't the problem.
Finally, a common fault with these cars is the fuel pump relay, its the biggest black plastic covered relay in the fuse/relay box, at the rear of the front offside inner wing area.
