Yale GLC155CANGBE085:
Starter issue ~ 4.3 LP

We manage a fleet of 15500 Yales in a paper mill and the starters are failing left and right due to a voltage drop to the starter solenoid. We wired an outside solenoid in series with the start lead to the starter to alleviate the issue for now. This environment demands excessive stops and starts.

Any tips on where the voltage drop may be located in the start wiring?

One added bit of information to your repair, I have found that the starters last longer, mainly the drives. I think the full voltage to the soleniod makes the drive snap in quicker and there is more positive engagement of the gear reducing wear and damage to ring gears reducing downtime and costs.

Thanks for the help. We just finished the last few trucks and the starter issue is gone.

The voltage drop starts at the switch then to saftey neutral switches---wire harness connectors---buy the time it gets to the starter it is low---you did the most cost effective way of solving the problem. The high temperatures incurred on the 4.3 in that enviroment does'nt help much either.

usually a multiplug under floor plate gets bad connection. just under where your left foot sits. if a relay fixs problem i wouldn,t worry too much about stripping out harness. there are many trucks running about with relays fitted to the starter solenoids
