New to theses forums and having probs with my Spider s4. Not much of a mechanic either which doesn't help. Basically I can't get my S4 started. It had a duff battery which was replaced last week. With the brand new battery it won't tick over either. There is no life in the starter at all and worryingly I'm sure I saw a trace of smoke from the the alternator. Would a wrecked alternator prevent the starter from turning? I tried to jump it to eliminate the new battery and it still won't turn over. Ideas anyone?
