Hiya mate, it's a GM diesel, V8 6.2l and I'm told its been an intermittent fault, tonight I'm just going to pop the dash to make sure there isn't a wire off (I wish), then thats the total scope of my knowledge of vehicle/ Marine electronics :( :( :( :(

Well with batteries charged, leg lifts ok so I assume batteries good, it seems that starter or solenoid just click, so I need a bendy person who can shake some lead to see if its solenoid switch wire,,, ok could it be that easy :D :D :D :D

recieved my 4.8w solar panel,, cool,, everybody has failed to get to the starter so my son No1 is giong to take off the starboard exhaust manifold and that should give access (Hopefully) lol lol
Will keep you posted, if you hear a cheer coming from Kemps this weekend you know its a starter and not an engine rebuild!!
Pete, :( :) :D :) :( :D
