Transit Connect / Focus - Starter Motor Not Working.....help Please

6 posts in this topic

Hello

I have a Transit Connect 1.8 (55 plate - 85k miles).

Decided not to work when I came to drive it yesterday....just a single clicking noise and found out it was the starter motor. Tested it and it didn't work.

Got a second hand one from a salvage firm today , fitted and now I have a series of clicks , still not working .

Could this be a faulty starter motor or could it be a faulty solenoid?

Any help appreciated....currently not going anywhere !

Thanks for your help

Yup it sounds like a flat battery, do the headlights go very dim when you try to start the engine?

it could be a bad earth connection to the engine, try connecting a jump lead from the negative terminal to a clean area on the engine and see if it makes any odds.

have you got 12v at the main power cable on the starter? you must be getting 12v on the smaller wire to the solenoid if you are hearing a clicking noise.
