Hi. I own a hino fd which dosnt want to crank. The starter solenoid clicks on and off but won't crank the starter. It just happened all of a sudden. The starter isn't faulty but I don't have a wiring diagram to check. Any ideas?
Welcome to JUST ANSWER heavy equipment. With years of experience, I look forward to doing my best to help. Is the solenoid doing a rapid clicking? I would want to verify that the battery and cables from it are good. With solenoid clicking, indicates low voltage to the starter.
The solenoid is clicking but once per each time I turn the ignition to crank. Not a rapid clicking. Each battery voltage is at 12.4 and 12.3. I can take it to a repairer but for now have to get it started and back to my mechanic. Is there any temporary fix? It's a bit big to push start. Lol. Dash lights come on so all I need it to do is crank... I hopeCheers
When do you measure the battery voltage? Batteries should be at least 12.5 before crank, and not drop below 8 volts. If they do, the batteries are weak.If voltage holds up and starter does not turn engine, the engine needs to be checked to be sure it will rotate with wrench. Was it running and quit or ran yesterday?
