Question about Cars & Trucks
When I turn the key I hear a click. I believe it is the solenoid engaging. The engine still doesn't start. The problem was sporadic at first. The truck would start sometimes and not at other times. Then one day the truck wouldn't start at all. Because of this pattern and because the solenoid still clicks I thought it was the starter motor. I replaced the starter motor and the problem is the same. I have had weird electrical problems with this truck for a while. The headlights dim and brighten periodically while driving, the stereo system loses power, and once or twice the truck has even shut off. I know its not a battery problem. The battery is new and I've tried jumping the truck with another vehicle. I'm not sure where to go from here.

that is a starter solenoid problem.
starter has its own solenoid. the big round thing besides the real motor.
it has contacts inside which could be worn out .
that is why sometimes it make contact and sometimes not.
tnx 4 using fixya,

the starter should be replaced. The solenoid is kikcing the pinion out but there is no contact being made to turn the starter motor. I have the exact same truck and before i changed the starter used the old starter tap trick. Tap the starter casing with a hammer and it should start turning again. hope this was helpful for you. Good luck.

sounds to me that you have an igniton problem not a starter problem and or if you have or had an alarm system could be cause if u do give me feedback and i will explain but seems that your starter is fine from what u say but if you think in terms of the elemts to start a vehicle batery gives pwoer to ignition which sends to starter which gives spark etc i would check you ignition system something is causeing a short and not alowing starter to function
