Re: Starting Circuit Mystery (why won't my engine crank?)
Forget Ohm for a bit. What do you have at the solenoid when the start button is pushed? If it is less than about 12.6 start cleaning contacts.
Unfortunately, it doesn't help any. I checked the voltage at the solenoid and I have 13.7v. All indicators are still pointing that the solenoid is the problem, except that when I powered it directly, it worked.
(Note: my original post said that I had 12.7 volts at the start button. Re-measuring this made me realize that was an error, it's actually 13.7. I'll update the original post, but no, you're not crazy, I originally said 12.7)
