Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site.

Is there power to the starter wire when the key is turned?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I believe so, how exactly would you be able to tell?
Mercury Mechanic: Jerry, Master Mechanic replied 2 years ago

You can check at the starter with a test light or a volt meter. There is a pinpoint test that can be done to determine if it is the starter or something other than the starter.

.

If you give me your email address, I can get the test instructions for it and put it in a PDF file, (it is rather large) and send it to your email address for as little as possible.

.

You will just have to accept the additional service offer and ENTER your email address in the “ENTER CONTACT INFO” section so that I can see it, Thanks

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
