The Problem:

I just went to start my Rover 45 year 2000 & nothing happened. All the dashboard lights came on & the fuel pump ran, but when I turned the key to start there was nothing.
The dashboard lights dim very slightly, but the digital clock dims quite a lot. The solenoid clicked once, but after that, not a sound. The battery is showing 12.4 volts when I checked it. Have you got any ideas?

Suggested Solution

Two things to do

1 Tap your starter motor with a hammer

If that don't work.

2 Charge your battery from the mains

If that don't work your starter motor in broken.

Most of your cars power goes to the starter motor when starting the car.
