Are you sure its the starter? did you try it in neutral? could be park neutral switch, or ignition switch, or if its a standard shift maybe it has a switch on clutch that it has to be depressed to start and its bad. As far as jump starting you cross the maine or big post on starter to small or little post on starter to do that, on a v6 starter it on the right side under exhaust manafold, and i think its on the same side on a 4 cyl.

Possible not shimmed correctly. The starter teeth have to engage correctly for the starter not to hang up. That's what probably happened & broke teeth off. You had better check your flywheel around the entire circumfrence as teeth may be missing from it as well. Starter won't engage if teeth and flywheel teeth in same spot are broken off. If the flywheel teeth are bad, it will be a spendy fix to put a new one on... Rick

How did the water get into the fuse pannel? Was this vehicle a flood victum? Or, just some rain. It kind of makes a difference on what I'm about to tell you. I guess if it was a little water from rain the first thing I would do is check the relays.They are nothing more than little switches ad water can have an effect on them. The points in them could be corroded, weaken the springs, etc. Start there. Then check wire connections for corrosion, and loose or broken wires. Do you have any type of repair manuals? If you can, identify the relays, many times there are several that are the same and you can move them around and interchange them to help you find a bad one. Other wise there are some electrical tests which you can perform on them, but you will need some electrical test equipment. Let me know if this fixes your problem or if you need to know how to test the relays.
If on the other hand this vehicle was flooded, you have a lot of checking to do, starting with the computer. Do you have a diagnostic tester? You may need one.
I hope this helps you.

your battery isnt holding enough charge to crank the starter.thats what the clicking is. try charging you battery for a good 8-10 hours, if it still does the same thing you'll need a new battery.
