On my way back down the highway after a fantastic easter in Queensland
I stopped at a servo, filled up, then the syncro would not start.
Battery charge at 12.5v, all warning lights come on fine etc., but
starter motor doesn't kick over at all. Call the NRMA and he was able
to get me started using a jump starter attached directly to the red
'ignition wire' that goes to the starter. Got home and of course
still doesn't start.
So the starter does work, he suggested either ignition wiring, switch
or a few other things could be the cause of the problem.
Has anyone had a similar problem or any suggestions? What should I be
getting the auto electrician to focus on when I call him out?
Some side notes, once running, the battery had 13.7v across the
terminals. Also, may not be at all related, could just be due to age,
but I have been noticing lately my CD player after a few minutes gets
some static happening when playing a CD, sounds like its the radio on
not a CD.
Thanks guys, hope everyone had a great easter.
