Electrical Fault??

Recommended Posts

Had a problem with the starter motor on my mondeo, after taking it off, the cog which connects with the flywheel had sheered off. the cogs on the fly wheel were fine. Ive now replaced the starter motor bu when I turn the ignition on, the rev counter, speedomiter, fuel gage and temp gage all go straight over to max then back, then when I turn the key further to start car it makes a screeching niose from the starter motor but dosent turn the engine over..

can anyone shed any light on this?

sounds like the cog on the starter cant engage on the flywheel. is it exactly the same as the old one?

Yes mate.

But I still cant understand why all the clocks are moving when I just turn the ignition on?

the clocks are in dianostc mode so check the battery it may have a faulty cell the starter wont turn as there is not enough power to it make sure its a silver calcium/lead calcium battery if you have a lead acid battery theres youre problem scs charging systems can only use silver calcium batteries
