97 1.6 starting problems - brianm73
i'm having intermittent starting problems. it will start first time in the mornings. but after a good run i get problems that resemble starter motor issues. all the dashboard lights come on but nothing from the starter, not even the usual click!!! after a little while, maybe 30 mins it will start perfectly. i've had the battery checked and it is fine, both standing and under load. i've read on another forum that it could be the main connection from the battery to the starter motor. i've spoken to a couple of garages about changing the connection but they dont want to touch it unless they change the starter motor!! is there any way i can check this connection? and is there likely to be any truth in the connection problem??
i'm struggling now, as every time i take it to a garage the problem never happens!!!
