No power to solenoid / starter

Post by pmallinson » Tue Nov 10, 2015 3:23 pm

Just one other point if you know, can you tell me if there is a fuse in the feed from the ignition to the solenoid for the starter . If so where is it and what rating should it be. I have lost the feed to the solenoid and can only think I have blown a fuse as I have been raving bout behind the dashboard and centre console

No fuses in starter & coil system. May have pulled a spade off a Lucar on the ignition switch. Or disturbed the plug on its mini harness. Or if its an auto there is the inhibit relay which prevents starting unless in park or neutral.

Check the contacts in the plug and socket, in wiring loom, beneath the wiper motor.
