Discussion Starter #1
I have a 1998 Sportage that won't start after I start it and turn it off, it will start again after it has sat for a few hours. everything works(lights, radio, wipers) but the starter will not even try to engage but I can hear a slight 'thump' which I assume is the starter. I'm at my wits end because we replaced the starter last spring. Any ideas/suggestions?

Wits end comes on real fast if you just guess.

Use a DVOM and check the main starter BAT+ feed for high resistance and correct voltage.. Then using the same meter check the solenoid activation terminal for correct voltage when key in start position...

Report back with findings... Philip
