Pick someone's brain!

Fn2 won't start with start switch /
It starts if you bump it & just changed battery.

Any ideas ?
When starting with the start switch, just seems to try tick once then dies.

Tried to use jump leads from another car & no luck also, same thing.

Is it actually turning? FN2 starters have a habit of the pin firing, fouling on the flywheel and nothing happening.

It can be either battery on its last legs or the flywheel teeth are burred.

Also try to avoid bump starting it too often. It has a timing chain which can jump teeth on the cam gears on a bump start of already stretched or the tensioner is tired.
