Hey guys, first post, so here goes!

My mate has an XH II XR8, and he's currently stuck in Melbourne because the thing won't turn over.

The symptoms -
Once he turns the key, all the electrics are working,
The starter motor clicks about once, but she doesn't crank at all.

He's gone through and checked all the fuses / reset smart lock and obvious things like that, but we're both at a loss.

Any ideas?

Check the starter wiring. It's most likely a loose connection or a dodgy relay.

It was a dodgy wire! Thank you! All alive!

Now we just need to find a replacement metal clip to secure the connector!
