Only had my mini a few days and not familiar with it just yet. Last night the engine died as I was accelerating in 3rd gear. I managed to turn into a bus layby - tried the starter but all that happens then and since is a clicking solenoid. I called the AA. The patrolman tried to bump start the van by towing it but despite the motor turning it wouldn't fire up. I was towed home and the van is in my garage. So far I have established that there is 13.5 volts reaching the solenoid.
Where do I start?
The vehicle is a 1979 van with a 1275 engine fitted.
