Default Re: Starting problem

I must say, many years ago I had an old Chevy that would ONLY start if I crawled under and smacked the starter. It worked every time...then I bought a Ford!!

Well that was the wrong thing to do. You should have took voltage readings and took it apart and fixed it. I cant believe that you beat the hell out of that starter, you are a hack.

Someone likes to take things to the extreme. No one said to beat your starter all to hell.

To comment on what santa said about the $150 an hour: The peoples carts that I go service are all rich and buy theese carts to drive from there beach house to the beach and none of them have the first clue about golf carts. I would say that I go to at least 10 calls a week to carts that are not holding a charge very well and when I get there and tell them their batteries are bone dry and have no water they say "the batteries need water". Or they will say "my charger is not working" when the cart has been sitting for 9 months and the batteries are dead because this is their summer house and they havent been there to use it. Theese people will spend $20,000 on a tricked out cart and not know one single thing about it. Thats why my boss gets away with charging $150 an hour.[/QUOTE]


Hell Yeah, that sounds like a great business, if you cant figure out that your battery's dead and you need to call somebody to come to your house and look at it, they deserve to get ripped off... and what i meant was it would probably be cheeper for somebody like you to just replace the starter because it would take a lot less time charged than rebuilding it. ohh and to the guy whose topic this is about, like i said before, check every freeken wire! the last guy i said this to had his battery terminals switched and went all out checking ohms on the coil and such, turned out there was absolutely nothing wrong with his cart (From what i know)

Dont worry about it smallblock, like you said everyone has their opinions.

Next time I will just start a new thread when I want to argue with someone. J/K

Thanks for the apology.

So my question is, how is the pedal linked to the starter and what could be my problem?

Thanks!! Frank
Frank..."if your reading"...Your G14 starting circuit is...the battery/fuse/key switch/accelerator micro switch/solenoid and starter. I "my self" first use a volt meter to check the battery when the accelrator pedal is pushed. If it drops below 10 volts, it cant complete the circuits to "energize" the solenoid and start the engine turning over on the compression stroke. My advice would be to....use a volt meter, put the + lead onto the battery and the - lead onto the "small black wire" on the solenoid. Is there battery voltage (12+ volts) ? If no you have a ground problem. Next put the - lead on to battery ground and the + lead on the solenoid "small red wire" and push on the accelerator. Is there 12 volts+ ? If not could be the fuse,key switch ,wire harness or the accelerator micro switch. Now if there is 12 volts ground and 12 volts when your accelerator pedal is pushed..you should hear a"click" from the solenoid activating. I'm sorry to say..just because you hear a click..it does not mean your solenoid is letting "current flow" thru the solenoid (big 2 terminals). If you hear a click..put your volt meter - lead on -battery terminal, the battery 12 volt + lead goes to one of the large terminals of the solenoid, put the + lead on the other big terminal of the solenoid and push on the solenoid (a click?) and see if you have a 12+ reading, if so a starter/generator problem. If you know how to use a volt meter you could check this out in 2 minutes. Sorry it took so long for me to post. Please let us know your findings.....If your still looking at this. With your findings we can even narrow it down further. Good luck Dave
