Todays problem...Wont start.
#1
The dashboard lights up, pre-heat and everything works, battery is good.
I try to start the engine and nothing happens, no sound, no clicks, nothing.
I tried bridging the starter solenoid but nothing, except a few sparks.
Has anyone any idea's or have I found the problem already? (The solenoid?)
For the second time this week, the van is stuck on the drive.....
Arse.

Sounds like starter motor.

Old school trick. Tap the starter with a hammer while someone tries to start it
Safety warning. Don't leave it in gear or you might die

Agreed, does sound like starter, but make sure battery is charged fully. A flat battery is similar

Tried tapping the starter, arcing the solenoid etc.
Nothing, except the tick of the fuel pump.
Is the concensus that my starter motor is knackered?

Get a neighbour to push. Give heater plugs a couple of warms first and then bump it. Should fire up

I'd go for a starter. As said above a push start will tell you Smile
