Unless the van has two positives? Then no.
I couldnt see another positive?

Well, now you need to diagnose just that issue.

First, use a multimeter on the starter motor - make sure you get 12v at the little wire when you turn on the key - this is the "activator" wire.

Then make sure you get 12v at the big wire.

If both is true the I would suspect the starter motor.



How are you powering it?

So then how old is the battery? How well charged is it?

Have you tried starting it on some jump leads?

On the live terminal, there is another cable that joins it, and then that goes to a grey plug thing where is splits into 2.

Mess with that lot while you hold the key on for start.

After that, try hitting the starter motor while you hold the key.

Then test the voltages out as described.

If all that goes ok, take the starter motor off and bench test it.

But if you can't be arse with all that. Drag the van down the road on a length of rope to see if you can bump start it.

So i tested the solinoid on starter motot perm live thats good. Then the spade connector which goes to ignition thats negitive. But stay negative when ing and start up goes on.

So i got a piece of wire and put it from the perm live on solinoid to the other spade wire coming out and it turned over the starter motor.

So could it be the wire from the solinoid to ignition thats bad?

Make sure the final switching stage of the ignition barrel works.

If your getting the starter live there, then you can work forwards.

There are 4 or 5 wires coming off the barrel.

I did check them but not sure if i got the right result.

How many do i need live and how many negative?

One showed no live or negative.

I'm sure if you sit and think about it you will work out how the ignition barrel works!

Its here on the diagram:-

Ok cool.

Also there is a thick cable that is at the front of the van. That has a grey plug/connector with a green band on that has two wires blue and white and red and white is this anything important as its not plugged in and i cant find where it goes.

Right so the van is working. Yay!!

I just have to find where the fault is from the ign barrell to the starter motor.

And still have to source another van.
Then it will be on the road.
