K-Series starting


Recommended Posts

I kbnow this has been done to death, but I'm planning an assult on my 1.6SS tonight to finally get it started after about 50 failed attempts.


Sequence as follows: immobilise, turn key, click & whirr, no action from the starter.


I've tried the five-click disable button route, but to no avail. Last time I managed to get it started, it was after I hit the tilt-switch reset button.


I'm planning to look at the solenoid, but (sad to admit) I wouldn't know a solenoid if it fell on my head, so a few pointers as to what it looks like & where it is please ('96 1.6 k-series).


Failing that, I'll try the rocking back & forward in gear.


Failing that, HELP .......

Rocking the car back and forth won't help as the starter isn't mechanically connected to anything until the Solenoid fires!



If you can get it to me I can look at it straight away (FOC), Where in the country are you? Post here or e-mail if you prefer
