Hi my name is ***** ***** you be a little more specific, not real clear what you mean "but when post" ?

Also do you have a multi-meter ?

And can I get your VIN number or the exact model code of this unit ?



Expert:  Kenny O. replied 1 year ago.

Sorry Harold, so it looks like you have an accessory light bar, correct ? and does that have a separate switch ?


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it is hooked to hot and ground cable. Has a switch. will not work with it disconnected also. Solenoid spends but will not respond to the ignition switch but only when poles on starter are crossed. Still only spends and will not engage the fly wheel.

OK Harold, so the Light Bar is hooked direct to the battery with its own separate switch. Correct ?

So I gather it looks like you are shorting the two positive wires on the solenoid and then the starter motor will "spin over" you have "spends" which I'm assuming is a typo ?

Do you have a multi-meter (volt meter) ??


Expert:  Kenny O. replied 1 year ago.

Harold the reason I'm asking if you have a multi-meter is, I need you do to do a few checks for voltage, that way we can narrow it down to the cause of the problem.
