went back in the water
last weekend,the crane dropped her in then i went below to start the engine
to take her back to the slip and all i got was a click.
The last time the engine
was started was when i winterised it and there were no problem.checked all the obvious things -batteries fully charged etc-and still nothing except a click from the solenoid,i started researching how to test the solenoid and starter motor
but something was nagging me.
I'd tried starting with the kill switch in the off and on positions and got a click in both positions which shouldn't happen so i put a srewdriver across the terminals,tried again and it burst into life.
For the moment i have the kill switch bypassed but what could be the problem?does it just need replacing? I relocated both the engine and house kill switches over winter as they were in awkward positions to access-have i done something in this process?
edit-i wonder if the switches have different current
ratings and i inadvertantly connected them wrong?-the house bank still works fine
