Elise S1 Starter Motor

Recommended Posts

I hope I'm not posting in an incorrect section.

My Elise S1 fails to start. The battery is fairly new and regularly charged. The AA could not fault the battery and suggested the starter motor is dying. My usual garage is not currently open but I read that hitting the starter motor can sometimes work, at least temporarily. The trouble is I don't know where the starter motor is in the rear bay. Could anyone tell me where to look (or even better, send me a picture) so that I can find it and have a look. Any responses would be much appreciated.


Thank you,

I had this too. This would normaly be related to poor connections. Clean all of them.
