How old is the starter pack? The battery(ies) die after 3-5 years. FWIW I replaced an AGM-type battery in a starter pack and found out later it was almost as expensive as buying a new one from COSTCO or Uncle Sam's. Sounds like you're in Oz so COSTCO might not be available.

Not to my knowledge, usually the charging fuse will be a low value in relation to the voltage output and the wattage. Maximum would be 10amps or so and the unit would charge all night to come up to charge.

I suggest you keep trying to start for 3 or 4 ten second bursts with ten seconds between each. Dragging current through a poor connection will tend to cause heating of the connection. Immediately feel each battery connection and each connection along the battery leads to the starter motor not forgetting where the earth leads connect to the bodywork.
Using a voltmeter to measure the volt drop along the leads would be an easier way to check the leads and connections.

Pay particular attention to terminals that are crimped to the cables rather than being soldered. Sometimes there is a dirty connection inside the crimp where it can't be seen or cleaned and the only cure is to cut it off and replace it with a more conventional type of soldered terminal.

It might be a good idea to start with to test the new starter to ensure it is good....

Battery could be bad. A bad battery can sometimes show a surface charge (voltage) on monitoring system, but when you go to use it nada happens because it has no current.

barrel pin 12v 500Ma is correct. the only other required stat that you need to know is that the polarity is( ---------that's how the inside pin polarity is shown on the transformer. Go to any radio Shack, and they have this charger in stock. tell them you need a 120v. a/c input, 12v. DC 500 ma output, with the center (inside) pin positive( ).It should be less than $20.00

The FIRST question to answer is, how old is it? If you have had it, unused, for much more than a year, then you shouldn't expect it to take and hold a charge, unless it's got an advanced battery system installed that is. Most of these are produced 'down to a price', not 'up to a standard' and are equipped with lead-acid batteries. As many will know, lead-acid batteries soon lose their ability to take and hold charges unless they're put into immediate and regular use. However, if yours is inside a year old, then you might just have some come-back. Make sure to read the instruction book. You MAY find it says 'charge it immediately ... etc!
