Re: this car won't start

Is the engine not turning over with the replaced starter ? Are you getting power to starter ?

Re: this car won't start

Did you test the other starter with a battery before you fitted it ?

Re: this car won't start

Ok so I still haven't found the issue i've just wired a push button to the starter as a temp fix but I would still like to find the problem so if anyone has ideas on what it could be please let me know because I don't want to have the button in for long
