If all you say is true, good starter, new battery, and 12v at solenoid.... then you have to have a bad ground...check the ground wire at the engine block and make sure all cables are tight...

My 2003 KiA sedona,acts like the battary wants to die and then suddenly it starts, has been doing this for 3 days.


1st: Battery needs to be checked (no weak or dead cells) then fully charged.
2nd: If battery is good and fully charged, the problem could be excessive amp draw from the starter, a starter draw test would determine if the starter is drawing too much battery power.

hi from uk check the main lead from battery+positive to the starters solenoid is secure ? also there is a thin wire that also connects to solenoid on a terminal of its own this is the solenoid energizing wire that works starter when key start position is selected if all above is ok? then use a jump lead and connect one end to battery negative post then the other end of lead to a suitable earth point on engine ? then try starting? if it works/starts ? you have a bad earth connection to engine from battery negative lead check the earth lead connection at point on engine is clean/secure ? it usually is secured by bolt at point where engine and transmission connect ? hope this helps?

1992 VW Polo 1.3L Coupe: warning light mystery


Bought a very reputable diy service manual for the vehicle, and that plus a bit of thought and nous gave me the cure: no intrinsic problem other than loose relay connections. Went round with the wiring diagrams as guide checking all electrical connections in tight and relays fuses etc all good. Switched on and no problem any more.

By the way, vehicle is 1992 VW Polo - not Fox (which in UK is a variant of the Polo)
