Question about 1993 Buick LeSabre
I have spent the last 2 days fighting this starter.just a starter.2 bolts,2 wires.when i turn the key it clicks rapidly.i can see the bottom of the flywheel and the teeth on the starter and the teeth on the flywheel move together manually with no problem,but the starter will not move the flywheel like it should when you turn the key.
i tried jumping it off,a different battery temporarily,replaced the new starter,no change. a relay maybe?where to look? please help!!
Given the steps you have taken, only one of two things this can be is a resistive connection between the battery and the starter solenoid terminal. Or the battery itself has a bad internal connection. Bear in mind: you cannot crank the engine through the average set of jumper cables unless the battery in the dead vehicle will hold and deliver a good charge. Jumper cables are not really intended to start the car, they are for boosting the good, but low battery in the car being jumped.
