Starter Motor Help


Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

I really hope someone can give me some advice.

I was getting the clicking noise from the starter motor for about a month but it did eventually start. (2003 2.0 TDi)

I replaced the solenoid on Monday evening and now it won't start at all. I took the starter to a electrics specialist and he told me today that the starter motor and the solenoid I fitted are fine.

Does anyone know what it could be? I noticed when I put the starter back in to try it, the battery light was dimly lit. The headlights came on fine and jumping it didn't work.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Gary

Did you find out what the problem was. I just replaced parts in my solenoid, refitted starter motor ,battery etc. tried to start it and it is going crazy. Lights on dash go dim, tailgate window came down an

Md stayed down, funny kind of pulsing noise fro near some relays and possibly oil pump.
