2006 450 CDI When key is turned to starter position I have power output through SAM unit but have no power at starter motor solenoid. Ground is good. Looking for wiring diagram that shows connectors from sam to starter as it has to be a loose or corroded connector.
dank1945 posted a topic in Operation and Maintenance: 450 Model, 2005-2006, dieselHi, First post in this forum, just bought my 06 Pure with 208,000 kms. Turning the ignition switch to start usually takes 3-4 tries before it will turn the starter. The starter has been changed with a new one by PO, so that's not the problem. According to PO it's been doing this for 1 year, but it always starts, eventually. Where is the relay that powers up the starter solenoid? I'm in the process of buying a service manual off eBay. Love the car already.
dank1945 posted a topic in Operation and Maintenance: 450 Model, 2005-2006, dieselI'm trying to check the state of the wiring to my starter motor, is there a wiki on the procedure to lower the engine or how to do this without lowering the engine? Thanks
Hello all, I have been trying to find the easiest method of getting to the rear side of the engine on my .8 dsl fortwo. I have 3 key components I want to always have access to. my starter alternator and thermostat. I have done some research on locations and plan to create a hatch door to give me immediate access to them most likely with hinge style or grove style (such as the engine cover panel) my question is has anyone ever attempted this mod to the body of the vehicle? also if I were to cut away a portion of the cell shown in my picture(general area) is there any ideas of ways I can have it easily removable and still create an airtight seal for sound when reinstalled? I have access to welder and can form sheet metal. tomorrow I am going to begin the cut. also the second picture is showing key strength points in red and I will be cutting just under the main support in between existing engine access hole and my cutting area. I am planning on swapping alternators in summer as bearing in mine is on its way out the door. I am also wanting to attempt tolson's restrictor mod to gain some heat in my -32 celcius world I live in. thank in advance!
