Question type: Maintenance & Repair

checked batteryok

1 Answer


Switch on your headlights and try to start it. Do the headlights stay nice and bright? If so it's going to be the starter or the neutral safety switch. Do they dim, flicker, or go out? If so it's going to be a weak battery or a bad battery cable connection. HTH. -Jim
