New Product Announcement

You asked For It! Romaine Electric Delivers it!

    Yes, our engineering team has re-invented the mouse trap and has captured Mighty Mouse inside the box! The Denso P5.0 starter has been one of the industry’s most successful designs. However, the original design had a flaw, which resulted in premature solenoid failure. The original solenoid design used angled contacts. If the installer slightly over-tightened the solenoid battery post nut when installing the starter, the geometry of the contact studs and its mating contact became skewed, resulting in pinpoint contact, causing arcing and burning. This connection is paramount in the starting circuit and must carry initial inrush currents of up to 300A! An inspection of a failed solenoid will look like this, and is common.

Romaine Electric has re-engineered one of the industry’s most durable starter motors to arrive at the P5000 Xtended Duty starter motor.                                                                                                      


      Romaine has redesigned these contacts to ensure a positive contact every time! During our redesign, we also increased the overall contact surface area by 20% to further enhance its current carrying ability. What does it mean? Take a look at the following videos to see!

     The P5000 also comes complete with IMS relay which ensures proper control circuit voltage and nullifies vehicle voltage drops that also reduce solenoid life.  The P5000 is simply the most bulletproof class 7 & 8 starter available today!


The P5000 Features:
