so last night my mate had driven his 180 all day, got home then went to go out later that night and she just wouldn't start, would crank fine just wouldn't turn over. we tried jump starting just incase the battery didn't have enough juice, could hear the fuel pump priming fine, tried hitting the starter motor. then after tried to roll start it, after we roll started it it would start up but then just die slowly writhin 5 seconds, he's replaced the CAS and still no luck. initial thought would be that it could be spark alothough reading a bit says spark shouldn't stop it starting unless it's a bit problem so any ideas??
Finished putting the car together tonight ready for tomorrows tune, went to start it but only cranks and doesn't turn over! Couldn't hear fuel pump prime on ignition so checked the fuse in the drivers side foot panel and is good. Then tried seeing if there was any power at the fuel pump plug to rule out dead fuel pump, couldn't get plug off seems to be fused on so spliced into wires with a multimeter, no power through wire.. The only things left i can think of is the relay (located?) or ecu. How would i test these as there's no power getting down to actual pump. Is there anything else i should check? Thanks in advance
Hey guys, I've got an unusual starting issue with my S14a. The video explains exactly what's going on: The issue started a week ago when 2 out of 5 tries, the engine turned over and started up. Now it doesn't do it at all. The starter simply makes a loud click noise when turning the key. Push starting the car is fine so it's definitely a starter motor / electrical issue. I checked the electricals (proper voltage, working relays etc), tested it all with a new odyssey battery from another car but no luck. So I decided to tap the starter motor with a hammer, and it started straight away. Awesome I thought, I'll just repair the starter so I pulled it out and took it down to the shop to be reconditioned. $200 later, it came back with a new brush box and brush bearing kit. Put the starter back in and it STILL WON'T START. The voltage that the starter sees when trying to crank is between 11.9V and 12.4V. The interesting thing that you can notice from the video is that the engine starts to turn over but then stops. It's as if the starter motor doesn't have enough power to turn the engine. Could it be that the auto electrician didn't fix the starter motor properly? What should have been done to it? They didn't touch the solenoid so could it be that? Oh and I tried hitting the reconditioned starter but no luck in that department. Any help would be great!! Thanks!
