Te-V issue
« on: 09 July, 2017, 07:27:48 PM »
Hey guys took the Te-V for a long drive yesterday from Whangarei to Auckland  no problems Cruising along  till I had a rest in Papatoetoe turned car off for 10 minutes went to turn car over  Bt no starting just clicking noise like a dead battery  I checked battery  still has green light on battery and I've recently had a new starter motor fitted  what's causing this issue?  I ended up waiting 1hour put terminals back on then it finally started Could it be the terminal leads? Or something electrical?

Interesting one, hard to diagnose without seeing but was starter motor new or 2nd hand? If its clicking that's the solenoid engaging like a metallic clack sound. If starter is acting like its not getting good power either the 2nd hand starter was about to fail when brought ( totally luck of the draw really not the wreckers fault but they may remedy it free if your polite) or when installed the power lead wasn't tightened enough and has cone a bit loose. If batteries good then I'd say its starter related. The circuit for starter motors doesn't vary much.

It'll be ya battery no doubt. Check the date of manufacture on the battery - they only last a few years. if you leave the car parked up for longer than a couple of weeks on a regular basis, it will die faster. especially if you have an alarm or a bright flashing LED that slowly drains the battery.

Yeah 3 hours should have been plenty, I'd check voltage with a multimeter or a decent batt tester and check alternator is charging. When you flick key is it a consistent fault or does it crank and fire up normally sometimes? If it does then its not battery  past a possible loose terminal or earth type fault.

I found out it was a faulty terminal
