What you have is a VERY common problem. Your starter solenoid contacts are worn out. To rectify this, you have 2 options: Remove the starter and replace the burnt contacts (the are located under a metal plate that has 3 small bolts holding it to the starter; replace the plunger and the 2 copper coloured contacts) OR reeplace the starter. The clicking noise that you hear is the plunger hitting one contact, but the current from the battery is not passing thru the plunger to the other contact that leads into the windings of the starter. No contact = no crank.

It could be a charging issue. But it could also be that something is draining the battery. To test the alternator you'll first have to charge the battery using a battery charger. Then follow this test.

If the alternator passes, then conduct a battery drain test with this procedure

The battery is good but it wont start


It may be the solenoid (electro-magnetic clamp) that engages the starter motor with the flywheel to start the car. Unfortunately, this usually involves replacing the entire starter.

If you have a new battery and it keeps going dead, then either you have a bad battery or the alternator is not charging properly. Altenator not charging could be either a bad alternator, loose belt, or bad wiring coming from alternator.

Check the start solenoid, starter side, when you turn the key... The battery side will always be hot, the starter side should be hot when you turn the key.

My 93 Dakota will crank over so but not start in key off position


If I understand you correctly your saying that the engine will crank on it's own when the key is not in the ignition? If this is the problem you have a warn switch with sloppy connectors that are shorting out between each other. Another remote possibility is a short at the starter solenoid.
