I cannot see the manufacturers name. If you get me the manufacturers name and the model number then I'll be able to find out where you can get the power cord.

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

This unit contains a sealed lead acid battery. As such it is necessary to maintain the battery much as you would an RV or tractor or other occasional use battery. If you left the charger plugged in all the time, that's what killed the battery. If you charged it less than once every two or three months, that's what killed the battery. If you stored it in a cold place it may have sulfated. If you stored it in a hot place it may have dried out, especially while charging. The good news is that a replacement battery is not expensive and you can install it yourself. Pull the case apart (look for hidden screws). You may find a good YouTube video to help. Unplug the battery and either shop on-line or go to a battery plus store. But remember, the old SLA battery models like this are rapidly being replaced with LiPoly units that have very good latency (storage) without loss of power. You can get a good one for around $100.
