Re: Left Ignition On, Now Won't Turn Over

Yes, Gordon got on the wrong thread by mistake.

Re: Left Ignition On, Now Won't Turn Over

I had the battery load-tested and the results were good. Ordered a new solenoid and will install it this week. I will report back the results. Thanks to everyone who have responded.

Re: Left Ignition On, Now Won't Turn Over
