Bus won't start. International rear engine dt444 i think is the starter. I had to jump start it the other day, And it worked. Now that won't even work.

If you can reach it and have some help, you may be able to give it a good sharp rap with something heavy as a friend turns the key... It has worked for me in the past.

I tried, but not while someone was turning the key. I will try.

Sounds like batteries if jump worked ? Clean connections? You can use jumper cables to add secondary ground to chassis for quick fix.

If the Bendix is starting to go, it might work.

It won't work forever, but it might get you to a safe place to fix it!

Yeah. I'm on the road stopped (walmart). I'm not shutting her down for the night until I'm somewhere safe.
