NB2 Project from Cheltenham

Okay cool, cheers Robbie. Do you know how I would go about diagnosing that?

I’d remove the electrical part from the back of the mechanical bit and open it up and check for burning at the contacts. There’s a few springs and copper bits in there so open it carefully so you can reassemble it if required.

Cheers, I’ll let you know how I get on!

Okay so no luck with the ignition switch. I took it all apart, no visible damaged / burns / melting. Tried staring it with a flat head the same issue persisted.

I sat in the car for a while, googling and scratching my head. Thought I’d give it one last try before I went back inside and BOOM! Fired up without hesitation.

But wouldn’t turn back on after I turned it off…
And then it did, like 4 times in a row…
And then nothing.

Now I’m thinking that it must be the starter motor or a bad ground.

I’m going to check and tidy all of the grounds next. If that doesnt fix it then I’m going to check voltage at the starter and give it a gentle wack… If that doesn’t work then I guess I’ll need to get a replacement.

Unless anyone has any idea on what else could be causing this issue. Any help appreciated as always :v:

That ignition switch will come apart, it’s the contacts inside that burn.
