Hi everyone, about 3days ago when I tried to start my van, ignition came on but no starter, it just clicked (a electrical click from under steering wheel) turned it again and it worked. Over the following 2 days it got worse and now it won't start at all.
I got the RAC out and he said it was either faulty ignition switch or a fault with the feed to the starter.
He run a direct lead to the starter and it started (I wish I had seen how he did it)
Does anyone know how to wire it to a button? So I just turn ignition on and press the button for the starter.
Any advise would be much appreciated
