Customer Question

I have a CC LTX 1045. I was trying to start it the other day and it would begin to start but not turn over. I tried to jump it and then when I tried to start it I heard nothing at all.
A day later I tried again and it was back to starting but not turning over. It then when back to doing nothing. When I turn the key I a click coming form the back.
When I turn the key the battery shows 12v on the LCD and then goes down a little. I also changed the spark plug and nothing changed.

I believe you will find that you have a bad starter solenoid. The click you are hearing at the back is the solenoid. I would replace the solenoid and that should take care of your problem.
