    Is there a clicking noise when trying to turn it over? Or the dials flickering? If you have a multimeter check the volts on your battery.

    Nope no clicking or dials flickering, checked battery voltage its at 12.74v

    When I checked the voltage at the starter its only at 10.5v but still 12.74 at battery

    Thought it could be but is it worth changing cable from battery to starter as its dropping voltage and the battery first?

    I had this issue on my old pd130 a3. The wire was frayed at the starter motor, Would it work with a push start?
