Check the voltage of your batt. A voltage of 12.5 volts or more would be ideal. Then, between the batt and the solenoid, clean, double-check, and tighten every connection. If all of this checks out, connect the wire to your starter straight to the positive battery. That's all there is to it!
If the starting solenoid does not engage, look for a loose connection or a voltage drop at the ignition switch. As needed, repair the circuit or replace the ignition switch. The solenoid pull voltage must be at least 8 volts. The solenoid is grounded via the starter. It will draw current as long as there is a power source across its terminals.
The battery must provide 12 volts to the ignition switch and then on to the starter motor. If less than 12 volts is present at the switch, it will not close the circuit and the starter will not turn the engine over. A low battery warning light should come on to indicate this problem. The only cure for a low battery is to find and correct the cause before continuing to work on the car.
The starter motor turns the engine over by pushing down on the crankshaft with enough force to rotate it. This requires some form of mechanical advantage since it is so easy for the operator to turn the engine over too quickly and damage the engine. Stators also require a certain amount of electrical power to operate so they can generate enough torque to start a heavily loaded engine. Because of this, most starters use a ratchet mechanism to allow the driver to slowly turn the wheel in one direction while pressing down on it with his foot to start the engine. This prevents over-revving the engine which would cause damage to both it and the transmission.
1. While cranking, check the voltage at the solenoid switch's battery terminal; it should be at least 9.6V or according to the manufacturer's specifications. If it isn't, look for a voltage drop between the battery and the battery terminal of the starter solenoid. There may be corrosion on the wire connecting these two parts of the circuit.
2. Make sure that there is a good connection between the battery cable and the negative terminal of the battery. If not, the cable should be replaced by one with properly connected end plugs. Check that the positive terminal of the cable connects to the red lead of the battery. If not, replace the cable.
3. Clean the battery cables' connector ends, especially the negative terminal of the battery connector. Use a wire brush or sandpaper to remove any corrosion. Apply battery cleaner to the negative terminal of the battery connector after cleaning it well.
4. Replace any corroded or old battery cables. Batteries lose their capacity if they are used without being charged for some time. This means that if you don't connect a vehicle's battery to a charger every few months, it will be necessary to increase the voltage level on the battery terminals during start-up operations.
5. If the problem persists, contact an auto repair shop for advice. They may be able to diagnose other possible causes for your problem.
When the battery's life cycle is complete, the entire gadget must be replaced. If your device is not mentioned above, please contact your nearest Polar service center to schedule a battery replacement. Replace the sealing ring if it seems broken when changing the battery. For further information, please see the user manual.
Because all contors for each starter are supplied by a control transformer within the bucket, when the bucket breaker is turned off, control power is also turned off. When I turn off the electricity to the bucket, all of the induced voltage goes away.
The control circuit turns on the starters via contacts inside the bucket as required. As long as there is demand for power, the starters will keep running because they are continuously fed energy through the control circuit. Once the last starter has finished, the control circuit shuts them all off at once.
Starters are designed to operate at very low voltages so that they do not destroy themselves after a few hours of continuous use. The voltage they induce into the wiring is what keeps them going. As soon as the current flow stops, this induced voltage disappears too.
