not starting after starter replacement
Car: 2000 Audi a6 quattro 4.2l V-8
My car was not starting while the engine was warm (starter not engaging or turning) so I set about replacing my starter.long story short, I was taking off the old starter and noticed the battery has not been disconnected.
I put the new starter on, reconnected the battery, and nothing.
I took both the new and old starter in to be tested. They both passed. When the old starter was reinstalled it did not work. I tested the 200A fuse between the starter and battery and t was blown. I put the new starter back in, and today put the new fuse in (it took a week to come in). My car is still not starting.
Anyone have any ideas of what to check? School is starting back soon so I need to get this done ASAP
