Question about 2005 Dodge Ram 1500

2005 Ram 2500 HEMI clicks but wont turn over when trying to start

I can hear the starter click but it is not turning over. My wife was stuck yesterday and it done the same thing till I had her put it in drive and back in park. Also had it hooked up to jumpers. Battery shows good on the guage but I dont have a tester.

Think the starter is bad or are there other electrical issues with these?

Turn key and wont start 05 2500 silverado


This sounds like a weak battery or corrosion on the battery cable connections. The sound you hear is the relay and not the cylinoid.

Tried starting my 1999 dodge ram 2500 diesel but wont turn over.


If your positive and negative terminals are clean, both ends... not just battery, you should hear your starter relay click each time you turn the ignition key to 'start'. If no click, check connections to relay, If still no click, relay may be the problem. Assuming your battery or batteries are charged and you only here the click of the relay and no starter action, good chance the starter solenoid is in poor condidtion, or history. An indication of this problem is the starter would work intermittently and finally quit working.
Its an easy cheap fix. First disconnect you positive cable on the battery so you don't fry yourself or anything expensive. Remove the starter. Undo usually four bolts that hold the starter case together and pull it apart. Its always a good idea to pay attention how it came apart so you put it back together the same way.
The starter solenoid is just an electrical contact switch that conducts high amperage to the starter motor during engine start. The contacts in this switch burn out over time. When you pull the starter housing apart, you will see that the solinoid contact switch is installed within the hump on the side of the starter housing. You will quickly see if the solinoid contacts are burnt or damaged. Most auto parts stores have a whole collection of contacts. I paid 3.85 Canadian for a set that didn't quite match the set in my 95 dodge cummins. 20 minutes of filing saved me the $600.00 my buddies were paying . "Rebuilt' my starter about 5 years ago... and starts every time. Hope this helps someone out.
