Burst into life, to look at nothing wrong having cleaned all the connections but a small tug on the connector mounted to the gearbox and the wire came away. Anyone with similar s...

Another none starter..

Thanks, I've had the starter off and tried it all worked fine, solenoid engaged. The needles now don't sweep across the dials which they did this morning.

Had a similar problem in June which turned out to be low voltage from the battery, a new battery resolved the problem having stripped and bench tested the starter motor. It fired first time, every time until now. The bugger. Sooo.. F...

It won't turn over and when the key is in the third start position the needles don't run round the dials?

12.6v and tried set of jump leads. No difference.
