Hi I'm new to the forum and my robinhood I'm having trouble with my robinhood 2ltr efi dohc I thought the battery was weak as it hasn't been used much in the last year and it was struggling to start without the booster so replaced it had the starter motor reconditioned and still my engine don't want to starter I'm getting just clicking or nothing at all any ideas 

Thanks John

+1 for the above.

The clicking is the gear coming out of the starter motor to engage with the flywheel but if you're not getting any cranking, that is either a dead solenoid or dodgy wiring/earth.

Possibly a dodgy solenoid although being part of the starter it should have been tested when the motor was reconditioned. My money would be on a loose lead to the starter or a poor engine earth

Thanks The solenoid was replaced same time as the recon and tested by auto generators ill be cleaning connections today and checking the earth aswell thanks

connect  a jump lead from neg on battery direct to bolt on the starter motor and try if ok then you know you have a bad earth
