Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

Replaced gear box

Hi, got a Holden Frontera Isuzu 2000, automatic and decided to change over the gearbox, got one from same model and year, gearbox fitted well, only electrical connections were different. Problem is, starter motor now will not engage.
It sounds like if it's hitting against something, but that can't figure out what it's is. Before change over, there were no problems, is possible that the starter will hit into the gearbox? Please note, (I'm just an amateur, not a mechanic)
Thank you

    The vehicle is 19 years old. Could simply be that an issue with the starter cropped up coincidentally. Are you able to get the car into neutral when you try to start?

    Yes, neutral will engage with no problem.
