Dear customer, thank you for choosing Justanswer. My name is***** would like to help you.

I assume the digging noise comes from the starter itself?

If so, the starter motor must be replaced. The starter motor does not move out completely into the flywheel to rotate the engine. This is a flaw in this model.

Only rarely is the wiring between battery and starter the problem.

I would be very happy about a rating with 5 stars over the star bar at the top of the page, without this rating the site operator does not pay us experts.
