In Reply to: Opinions: Car won't turn over posted by Shawn Anderson on November 23, 2000 at 12:55:15:


I tried to dtart my car this AM, but it won't turn over. I can't even hear the starter engage. I can still turn on the lights and they look pretty much norlam brightness.

I can also hear a click from a relay under the dash and see the dash lights dim slightly when I try to engage the starter.

I'm not sure if my battery is dead or if my starter/soleniod is not working.

Anyone been through this??


There are two smaller wires going into the solenoid. One had voltage less than 12 V. The other had no voltage. Is that one a ground?
