no idea if its the 1st starter. It very well might be. I been slowly buying a new Bonneville, but a starter isn't in that list.
Dan, I just cleaned up at the battery. I am hoping that that'* all that was necessary. Seems to have fixed up a weak headlight problem that I didn't know I had.
The starter problem happened all at once. The day was business as usual. Drove to the city. Made a few stops. Started and stopped the car a few times. Roads on the way to work were very snowy, and my car doesn't have the bottom cover on, because it keeps breaking down, so it isn't worth putting on, Basically I got to work, went
, and worked all day. Came out after work, and it wouldn't start.
What would happen of snow got in the starter nose piece?
The car starts up repeatedly no problem, after its warm. When its cold, It'* much harder to start.
I assume if the starter can spin a engine, that it could easily break free from a little ice. But then again, who knows? lol
