Matt WangelinAh ok. I bought this from the original owner. He said that he never used the panel and always left the glass sunroof in. When he restored the car in the 90s, the paint shop used the panel to match the paint since it didn't have any fading on it.

Gordon SherryYou could try giving the starter motor a little tap too, sometimes that gets the starter turning again. I used to use the end of a jack handle for this job lol. Careful not to hit the terminals though.

Nathan Jack RobsonBattery isn't dead with the lights and radio coming on (plus its only a few months old) I did 4 and a half hours driving fine yesterday no problem and jumped out to open the garage and had to push it in, I've tried wacking it, then rocking it in gear and now I'm stuck.

Nathan Jack RobsonPs the starter is clicking once loudly on each turn of the key

Gordon SherryIn that case, as Kev says, check all the earths. Still check the battery, just because it's only 4 months old doesn't necessarily mean it's good.

Gordon SherryI'm surprised it chucked it, especially if you had enough power in the battery for lights and radio. Check your alternator.

Guillermo ExpósitoHi Nathan, my Fiestuca has the same problem right now, mine is in the garage and will be for a while, Your starter is working fine with the click but needs replacement, probably it worked for years and years, you can dismount it and change the escobillas, I don't know how to say that in English, they are a kind of copper-like pades which hide inside the starter or go directly to oscaro.com and purchase a reconstructed Valeo. It's important that you send the oscaro people all of the possible reference numbers that you can find for them to send you the right one, I don't have the numbers here but at home, eventually, I could give the numbers that I got but you can go on dismounting the starter and writing down every other number there is on that starter because from 1976 to 1983, it may be possible that different starters where used, the most common is an 80 KW or 0.80 but I can't recall any reference numbers, you must give them all the Valeo rererence numbers and the Ford reference numbers and any reference numbers that Ford England can provide you with. Have an awesome and an amazing ride.

Gordon SherryThere's a sales pitch right there lol. I doubt it's the starter if the engine chucked it after a bump start.

Nathan Jack RobsonWhat you thinking Gordon a wire from the alternator to the battery?

2 days ago
Avatar

Gordon SherryWhat? No... I'm just saying, check that the alternator is charging. Either take it out and get it to an auto-spark, or if you can get the car running, a multi meter on the battery should be showing around 13.5 to 14 volts with the car running.

Nathan Jack RobsonI completely forgot something and it will have been the cause to this problem in my eyes. I know this is going to sound stupid but I had to drive through a flooded road yesterday and I think that's killed the starter... 😖🔫 I feel stupid lol

Nathan Jack RobsonThe car is funny, at times it'll conk out that's probably irrelevant. It's getting took off the road for a overhaul in September so it'll get sorted then. I'll take me grandads starter off his for now

Jakub GadochaStarter might be seized or brushes are gone. If it bump-starts but the starter doesn't react later it's brushes in it. It might be also battery or connection between it an the starter

Pete Filipovic ッTap the starter with a hammer when turning. It sounds like the be six is stuck. Taking it out and freeing it up with some wd40 and then a light grease might be enough

Jamie SpencerIt's a 1983 xr2 with a 1.6 cvh engine on a 4 speed box it has a rear built in roll cage It no longer has the stickers on it and it has no seats no log book no tax and no mot The shell it's self is quite clean however there are a few small pin dents etc as you would expect on a car this age but when it was originally built there was a lot of money spent on it would make a mint track car or maybe a road car with a little work the only reason it's up for sale is I want to buy an off roader
