GT2 Dead!

Post by scrumpyone » Tue Mar 10, 2020 8:44 am

Drove home the other day - no issues.

Went to start her yesterday - zero action from the ignition.

Battery seems fine, as blower & lights will work but not even a click when I turn the key.

Thoughts?

Sounds like either the ignition barrel or the starter motor, I would start with the starter motor and go from there

check the battery connections especially where the live feed to the fuse box is attached, i had random cutting out and non starts from that wire being loose.
also check your earth wire to the gearbox is good to the chassis and battery


I dont mind project cars but I HATE SANDING!!!

It turned out to be a flat battery. Had enough juice for some electrics but not enough to turn over.
