Intermittant Start Problem 75 240D
I am have now had two occasions where I drive my car (1975 240D, well kept 70K), park it at the store, come back out 10 minutes later and it won't start. It has to be a cable/connection problem somewhere because no starting noise is heard and the lights dim. The battery is good.
I called for a friend to tow me home and we pushed the car back 20ft and voila! the car started without a problem.
Where should I start? Could it be the starter pull switch, loose starter wiring, internal starter problem? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
