My NX2000 has recently developed a starting problem. When I attempt to start the car it turns over for a few seconds, then it stops all of a sudden and sounds like it locks up. After that it just clicks and won't turn over at all. I took the starter out, thanks to directions I found here, and when I hook it up to a battery it appears to turn over just fine. I'm hoping not to have to buy an new starter. Any ideas as to what the problem might be? Thanks for your help!

I'd check your charging system. Sounds like you might not have enough power.

You might be overheating a relay or a wire somewhere.

No, but I'd like to know howI can load test it. Can you explain how to put a load on the starter with a piece of wood? Thanks!

just stick the peice of wood on the blades .. trust me a piece of wood is nuthing to a flywheel or whatever so its not going to hurt it.. just jump it and stick the wood on the blade and see if it eats it up.. if it does then the starter is good if not then your starter is bad
