    Hey guys and gals,

    When I try to start my 2010 commodore ute sv6 it clicks and doesnt start. Does anyone have any pointers as to what I might be??
    I tried to jump start and nothing. I have radio and lights though wont start. Had to clutch start though hear it's bad for the car.
    Thanks
    Matt

    Sounds like a starter motor or starter relay problem. Sometimes it's an indication the battery is bad too but we can kinda eliminate that if you tried to jump it although sometimes you need to leave the other car connected to charge the flat battery a bit before it will turn over properly.

    I've just recently had my harmonic balancer replaced and issue has only happened since this was replaced. The car started a few times recently though this time it didnt start at all even with trying to jump start it.

    I'm not intimately familiar with the alloytec wiring looms but have a look around the harmonic balancer for loose wires or plugs and earth points that may have been removed to facilitate the balancer removal, failing that my first port of call would be the starter relay.
