It is an automatic. I am presuming the breakdown service did all they could for a battery fault to be found. Research on the web found a similar problem where the dealer changed the starter motor but 2 weeks later the same problem occurred. No refunds of course! Tell me more about this "Neutral safety switch". I did find mention of such a thing. Is it easy to repair or better just diagnose if its the fault? How do I bypass that to see if motor will start?
ok, sounds like its not the nsw as there is a click. The click does sound electrical which is the relay you mention. If I hearthat click, its not the nsw correct?
How does this sound...
I have a battery that's fully charged. Will take that to the car and try it from that battery. If it still does not start, then we can say its the starter that needs replacing?
Is it an easy job to replace a starter motor on this? Have done it on a VW bus and an X5 before but know how some can be easy and others hidden under masses of wires, plastic, etc!
maybe VIN is the chasis number?
Sounds good. So might even be able to repair it myself outside the dealership :D
Armed with the info you provided I will go tomorrow and see what I can do. Thanks for your prompt responses.
Hello again! Any chance you can give me the start motors part number? I found 2810022040 and just want to make sure its the correct one. Thank you
I found this part:
and it lists multi-original numbers! How can that be? Any idea how I can get the original part for my model?
