use test light, connect clip on grnd. , touch tip on the starter wire while turning key , if it lights starter is faulty , no light, solenoid is faulty, if it lights and indicates starter is cause you can try to gently tap starter with plastic handle of screwdriver if tapping gets it moving then brushes in starter are dirty or near worn out hope this helps
Probably the starter solenoid. Over time the contact points, or plates, inside the solenoid get pitted or worn down. The starter will have to be removed to separate the starter motor and solenoid. Or just get a used starter and try it.
check your connections at the battery,clean any corrosion and tighten.(baking soda and warm water works.wear gloves and safety glasses) if still clicks when trying to start,it probably your solenoid on your starter. check connections there or while someone trys to start it tap side of starter with a pc of wood or small mallet.
The starter solenoid is the problem. The starter is under the truck on the passenger side. Go under the truck with a hammer and tap the starter a couple of times. Then go and try to start it again. Try this a couple of times and it may solve your problem. If this does not work, then the starter solenoid is out and needs to be replaced or you have a bad connection.
Check the main cable going from the battery to starter rellay.
This could be loose or there is corrosion on the connectors, clean this with a spray like WD40...
To find this cable start from the starter motor and work your way back to rellay and then to battery...
Check with multimeter if the rellay is fine.
else the starter motor is jammed... it will have to be opened and serviced..
I would say the starter motor has a problem.Try tapping on the starter motor with a hammer,lightly,while some one tries to start the engine,the amp meter is supposed to discharge when starting,because the stater is drawing amps.The starter needs to be replaced.
The only thing you have not checked is a solenoid starter. This culprit is a small cylinder one on top of your starter in the attached images. If you don't want to replace the solenoid starter at 43 bucks, you can rebuild it with a repair kit at 1 buck. I have 2 images here for you reference. Good luck.
try tapping the starter with a nice sturdy wrench or hammer but do not hit it hard. I have had that trouble before and all i did was tap the starter and it started up fine. Your starter may be going bad if that is the problem. If that is the problem , simply take it in and have it tested to see whether the armiture is not ingaging or if the celinoid has gone bad. you can raplace both or just buy a new starter. hope this helps.
