Car is out-of-the-nest daughter’s daily drive. Already towed to Trusted Independent Mechanic last night. Just wondering what the cause might be.
Starter does not run; do not even hear solenoid pull in. Do hear fuel pump run.
Multiple attempts at “jump start” do not help. (I did not even get a spark when I connected my cables!) I did not notice headlights dimming when attempting to start.
Dashboard lights (LEDs), interior and headlights look fully bright.
One observer said that “running lights” dimmed when attempting to start.
Daughter reports that a few days ago it took a few tries to get the starter to turn over.
My guess: starter itself (binding?? solenoid??). NOT ign switch or starter relay (if it has one).
What’s your guess?
