72 VW Bug
Posted: Mon Mar 12, 2018 5:14 pm
I'm goin friggin nuts here. Jumped in my 72 bug the other day and it started right up for me. Let me say first however it does have a aftermarket (caterpillar) push button in it for the starter. Apparently there was an issue with the ignition so the guy I got the car from put the push start in it. If I turn the key my dash light comes on. The lights work also. The head lights will only come on when its running. It does have a MSD ignition installed also. New starter. I've checked ALL grounds even replaced a couple fittings. Now I turn the key hit the button and nothing. No click or anything. Has a good charged up battery in it also. The only 3 things I can figure it may be is starter button, ignition switch(electric part), or possibly the starter solenoid??? I'm at a loss and very frustrated. Ugh!!!!!!! Help help help PLEASE!!!!! ANY ideas or suggestion are GREATLY appreciated. Thanks in advance!!!!
