Re: Trouble starting
If the lights go out but come back on when you move the engine in gear then I think the bolt on the back of the starter is loose. The only way the starter gets a good ground is through that one bolt. You can only get to it if you pull the battery out. 5mm head right at the rear of the starter where it goes into the transmission. I can't seem to find a good picture on this computer but it has been posted before.
Here we go - it is the single bolt that goes into the rear of item 4 (starter).
