Hi just started, Some times with my automatic sedona when gear lever in neutral or park, a single click. Will do this several times. A single click and nothing.Then turn key and a normal start.
Suggestions where to check?
May sound like a dumb question but can you lads tell me where the starter is located on the engine (to explain , my starter is clicking and probably needs an ebay kit and its p---ing rain outside and I dont want to spend the next 15 mins looking for it, I suspect its under the air box ??)
Starter reconditioned working perfect
Put it back in the car last night , same as before clicking like mad
It must be a bad earth
Does any one know where I might start to look for a bad earth.
I have checked the battery connections and the battery itself is new and the starter is fine, so where do I look????
Any ideas would be a great help
Try connecting a jump lead from negative/earth on battery to a good clean metal part on engine. If this cures the problem then you have either a broken earth lead going to engine or a weak connection.
If thats the case run a heavy earth wire from negative on battery to the engine.
This was a problem on my van. Edited by: davy
Could be a voltage regulator problem in the alternator. You would need to get it tested both for voltage output at idle and the amps its kicking out. If there is nothing at idle but charges at a faster speed then I would tend to lean toward a regulator pack which may have the brush pack built in to it.
How many miles has the car done ?
car has only done 54,ooo klms I know thats only 33000 miles , sounds very low but I did a very extensive history check and it all checks out fine.
The car was lying idle for the last few months (6) untill I bought it last month and I am just wondering is there some thing sticking in the electrics that stops it charging at idle speed.
Will have the output checked at idle speed and let you all know
