Starter Motor solenoid

Recommended Posts

Every time i seem to fix something on the jeep, something else goes wrong :argh:

 

this time its the starter motor, it seems the solenoid has packed in... :?

 

The jeep is 24v, with a preselector??

I went to start it & on pressing the button it just went click!

I tried rocking it, banging it & swearing at it, but to no avail, it still goes 'click'

 

It starts with a push & a very kind gentleman has lent me his starting handle, & I'm getting quite good at starting it this way!! :wink:

 

Anyhow, does anyone haveany knowledge of how to fix it?, Is it fixable?

 

any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers for that, :-)

i've had the batteries checked & they were ok, Both showing 12+ volts,

I'll check the connections, but it looks more like having to take the starter off.

It'll give me something to do!!

Ref the batteries were they load tested or just checked

for 12volts . I have seen loads of batteries show 12 volts

but once put under load they break down just a thought

I've got the motor off (one bolt is in a very difficult place!!)

 

I took it to an auto electrician & got it tested, The solenoid is Kaput!!

 

Time to order a new one

 

Thanks for all the help & suggestions

I know many of you could sleep at night woorying about this one,

 

IT'S FIXED!!! :mrgreen:

 

A second hand solenoid was obtained & after a bit of a fiddle, It was fitted to the starter motor & all the leads reconnected & it started first time :-D

 

Now its justa matter of waiting for the next thing to go wrong

 

cheers
