A little back story.
When I bought the car last April, it had an intermediate starting issue to begin with, over nights it would take a few try’s to get her going, but if I drove to the store, was in there for about 10 minutes I’d come back out and it’d fire right up. A few times of a no crank no start I tapped my starter and she started. One morning about 2 months ago she gave me nothing, even with tapping the starter so I figured it finally went out.
When I was replacing it I noticed whoever did it before me never put the top bolt back in, maybe because it was a pain to get to.
I’m thinking one of the people I’ve had help me with this starter accidentally snapped the wire.
I still find it weird it turned on with the cables, and ran not hooked up to them, but now acts crazy.
