disco_al Posted April 20, 2009 Share Posted April 20, 2009 last night the starter motor fried itself on my new disco. strange thing was, there was a clicking from the n/s footwell every second or so, and the brake pedal was pulsing in time to it (abs kicking in?). i turned the engine off, and restarted it, drove home, and when i pulled up, could smell the obvious scent of cooked starter, and it wouldn't turn over, not even a click from the solenoid. any ideas what the clicking could be? abs relay playing up maybe? although why would that fry the starter? unless the solenoid was causing an electrical short somewhere. it did the same thing with the clicking once earlier in the day, with the engine off, but with the key in position 2 (dash lights on). help please, i've spent all weekend replacing the 'box, and want to use it now Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
