Question about Cars & Trucks
We have recently fitted a higher compression engine and are having major problems with the starter. Have changed it for a known good spare but it still does not have enough grunt to spin the engine over. Have also changed the battery for a higher output unit but with no improvement.

SOURCE: engine won.t turn
hi can you turn engine over by hand [engine s not sezied ] and how did you test the battery and how did you test starter because if the engines not seized and you put a jump lead from your positive terminal off a good battery to a starters main terminal and it wont, turn over the starters faulty or there is no engine earth so connect the other jump lead from the negative battery teminal to the engine block and try again it will turn over if the starters good if the starter turns over with the jump leads check the small terminal on the starters wire is live when someone turns the ignition key if it is and the starter does not turn over then the soleniod on the starter is faulty if no live at small terminal then the ignition switch or starter relay are faulty best of luck yates2104546

check for a live feed to the low tension wire at the starter when a second person operates the ignition key. if no feed check fuses relays and then back of the ignition assembly. has it got an after market alarm fitted that may have gone faulty and has shut down the starting circuit. if so you need to find the wiring that it has been linked into and rejoin the original wiring back together.

CHECK STARTER RELAY AND FUSE.REPLACE BATTERY CABLES IF YOU HAD THEM FOR A LONG WHILE.BECAUSE GROUND CABLE COULD BE BAD.TURN OFF RADIO FIRST BEFORE REMOVING BATTERY CABLES SO YOU WONT LOSE RADIO CODE.
