The car has been fine, no issues till now but hasn't been driven for a couple of weeks. So this morning just a click and nothing. Battery is fine, tried tapping the starter solenoid and the starter motor but to no effect,so I bought a new remote starter solenoid and installed it, now there's not even a click when I try to start it.
1. How do I tell if I have the wrong solenoid (bought from local auto parts store) it's a 'continuous duty 100amp' job.
2. What else to try? Any tips greatly appreciated.

Short out the solinoid and see if it cranks just use a screw driver or jumper lead, if not load test the battery

faulty or oily gearbox neutral safety switch? try wiggling the auto shifter a little.

Hi Shaun, sorry to be dopey but I haven't tried these things before: When you say short the solenoid, is that from the solenoid to the battery? And load test the battery how?
Thanks mate.

get a jumper leed and clip it to the battery positive then hold it on the side of the solinoid that goes to the starter. if it still won't crank then starter or bat is toast. An auto sparky will have load tester, it just loads the battery and then measures volts, putting a normal multi meter across a battery proves nothing

Just get a big screwdriver and short across the two main terminals on the solenoid. The solenoid is just a heavy duty switch which has a small trigger voltage going in to close the contacts and allow the current to flow from the main input to the main output terminals...

Got it, thanks. I'll have to try that tomorrow. Are the solenoids pretty standard? I want to eliminate whether I was given the right part as well so I don't go off on a wild goose chase.

Yet some are crap though. My guess is the battery is toast. It's winter that's when batterys fail.

I think my solenoid is fine if you want to borrow it...

If what you are doing isnt working, this was the problem with mine. Try putting the shifter all the way into Park, then pushing it forward even more - whilst starting the car at the same time.

AutoMac in Myaree fixed mine for less than $100. Maybe it was $80? Anyway, the owner and operator is in MOCWA and owns a couple of stangs.

Just tried another battery, no good still, all lights etc work and there's no attempt at starting. I agree though, the cold weather has made something cactus (bloody freezing here).

Mike I might do that tomorrow, I'll give you a buzz in the am.

Short the solinoid if that doesn't work could be a stuck brush in the starter also check the earth on the engine is ok.
