So my mini wouldn't start. It's just ticks. I had a bit of a battery problem but I got a new battery and the mini still won't start just ticks. But if I connect the mini to a battery pack the mini will start and run perfectly. Any suggestions on what the problem could be?

Is it the solenoid that is clicking ?

Could be starter motor, something as simple as brushes in the motor sticking.
