Cors Air Vortex(PAP) starting trouble


Recommended Posts

Anyone any ideas?

My mate's Vortex starts on a new battery 'first flick'. It then wont turn over at all on the second attempt, just a quick in and out of the starter and then nothing. Almost like there's a short on the battery when it's running and draining the battery so it wont start at the next attempt.

Any clues?

If the starter motor engages then flys back out with a wirring sound or just seems to lock up then I would listen to the decompressor & make sure it is decompressing. I had the same problem with my corsair and a squirt of WD40 down the decompressor pipe sorted it out.

When you next get this problem, put a volt meter accross the battery terminals ideally 13.8V, but as long as it is over about 12.5V the battery should be ok.
