Starter Motor Solenoid?
#1
I think the starter motor has gone the car is a 1.6 hdi 07 ,
moved the car OK this morning ,she who must be obeyed could not start it this afternoon, I somehow get the blame as she shouted down the phone "It was OK until you touched it !"
looked at it tonight and I am getting 12v on the starter motor and 11v on the solenoid connection when it should be cranking has any one else had a starter just give up all of a sudden like that?

Like anything electrical,things pop just like a light bulb.Try jumping from battery to motor feed terminal,if the motor spins(it won't engage) the solenoid is the likely culprit.

Thanks for the reply Ron ,I think your correct the solenoid winding has just gone open circuit ,as you say just like a light bulb at least it happened near the house ,Do you think it would be OK to bump start a 1.6 hdi

The common belief is that you should not,but I have done it with no problems.Have I been lucky?With petrol it is supposed to soak the"cat" with unburnt fuel which burns off the precious metal coating,but with diesels I am honestly not sure.
