13.5 amps??? Or volts? Sounds like you have either a bad connection somewhere or a relay that isn't working. Check battery volts and then check connections on the way down the positive cable. I'll bet that you have some corrosion that is causing a break in contact. Your starter draws more amps than any small accessory in the car. low draw won't cause the connection to break down. Using the starter will, so as you are testing, once you have your volt meter attached to any connection, have someone turn the key to start and see if the voltage dramatically drops.

My opel corsa 99 cut out today and now it wont even turn over jst a little click when the key is turned the battery seems fine lights and radio come on when the ignition is on but if i push start it will...


Hi just because the lights work does not always mean the battery is ok. It takes a lot more power to crank the starter.
Generally that clicking will be either the battery or the starter motor. I would suggest if you can try jump leads and if it starts problem is battery, If not problem is most likely starter motor. For a possible third thing to check Make sure the battery leads are tight.
Cheers Mike;-)

Battery ok car wont start


You really need to be a bit more specific. Does the engine crank when you turn the key? If the engine does crank, does it sound like it is trying to start but won\'t? What kind of car is it? I don\'t think anyone is going to be able to help you with this particular problem without a bit more info...
All anyone can tell you at this point is, You battery seems to be okay...

I have a 2006 is250 lexus push button start and it only starts sometimes....radio, lights, nav everything works but it won't crank....takes 3-4 times before it cranks and it doesn't happen eve


The first thing you want to check for is the brake signal,without this signal it will not crank,this is the easy one make sure you get brake light,the second is to have the starter tested by a direct method,this gives the indication of the health of the starter
