I have a standard 280ZX '82 model.. About two days ago, I repaired 3 belts in the engine that somehow broke/ripped.. now my starter won't work. When I do try to start it, all I hear is a slight click sound in the fuel injection area. Can someone help me with my problem. Thanks and please respond ASAP..

Check the wires at the starter. There should be 3 of them (77Z has 3 and i think my 83 had the same). The small one at the top is the one that makes the starter turn. It should get 12 volts when you turn the key. My guess is that maybe you pulled the wire loose. Check all of the connections at the starter. If it doesn't get 12 volts then maybe check your ignition switch. I used to have to turn my key really hard and hold my left eyebrow up to get mine to start, I replaced the switch and everything was fine.
Hope this helps,
Tim Hill
