Starting motor

Post by Reddevil666 »

I have just had my starting motor referbished it was still clicking upon starting I went away stopped in services and when I tried to start the van the there was no click or anything but the motor just kept spinning and eventually burnt out I have now had it referbished again and it is still clicking any ideas ?? Could it be the relay starter in the fuse box or ignition switch?

sounds like the solenoid hasn't been refurbished, the cap of the solenoid is often the part that functionally fails and should be replaced as part of a proper refurbishment but they are quite difficult to remove and fit a new one too (and a wbx t25 cap is not standard) so most places don't bother, a complete new solenoid is expensive, especially a genuine one.
