Customer Question
I have a RTV 2006...
I have a RTV 2006 bf falcon Ute that is LPG dedicated.
Over the course of several months the start of the car has been intermittently getting worse as in need to be cranked over a little more.
Yesterday it took quite a few cranks but got going and ran fine like it usually does. I drove 20 km stop the vehicle and 20 min later tried to restart. I got absolutely nothing I didn’t even here the solenoid click. I had it towed home.
The battery is only 12 months old . Put it on a good charger over night. But again it would not turn over.
Is it most probably the starter motor?. All connections and wiring seems fine.

Hi John,

First thing is a scan for codes in the ECM and BCM.

Could be a starter motor, but some testing needs to done first.
