CAR DOES TURN OVER

1986 Mazda 323

Electrical problem
1986 Mazda 323 Manual

Hi there,

My car has been taken to the garage because it would turn over and they put a new starter motor into the car. The car started perfecting fine the first couple of times and now it seems I have some form of electrical problems. When I tried to start up the car the dash lights come on but when I go to start the engine the lights turn off the dash and the engine doesnt turn. Also if I turn the main car lights on it makes loud clicking sounds.

I have a new battery on the car and now a new starter motor. Any ideas are welcome.

Thanks

Check and test the battery if okay double check connections if it continues check the following starter, starter relay, park/neutral position switch and ignition switch

Starter motor connections mechanics often forget to tighten them
