Remote Starter Solenoid

(302Rover) #1

Has anyone experienced problems with the aftermarket starter solenoids available from the usual suspects? I’ve gone through two of these Taiwanese made solenoids because, when using the manual button on the end of the solenoid, it sometimes sticks, failing to disengage.

Although it seems to work normally when using the starter button inside the car, it worries me that it may decide to randomly fail while driving.

I’m in the process of talking to SNG Barratt right now and they are checking their data base to see if others have reported problems. They will get back to me soon but in the meanwhile I thought I toss the issue out for discussion.
