97 dodge Dakota sometimes when starting I hear a click then nothing if I turn the key again it starts


The starter solenoid is going bad. Check for voltage at the solenoid when u first start it and if u have voltage and it clicks, replace entire starter

2002 Suburban clicks when trying to start.


Yes it could be your starter the fact that you hear the click tells you that the starter solenoid is in fact working. Do check your connections for looseness or corrosion prior to starter replacement and fix as needed. Possibly has a dead spot on the starter that won't allow starter motor to turn even though the solenoid engages.

The acr would not start. Battery works. I banged


If you banged on the starter motor and it started then you have a stickie bendix drive and solinoid sticking
But if you have to also jump start it as well then do this.....When it wont start before doing anything else turn on the lights and hit the starter and if the lights go dim or go out the battery is no good or you have a short in the eletc ...so take battery lead off for 2 days and if starts you have a SHORTin the eletrics

97 chevy lumina wont turn over


The starter solenoid will click when the battery is to low to start the car. Have the battery charged and load tested to make sure it's good. Check the charging system to make sure the alternator is good. Check the wire connections at the starter. If either is loose, the starter won't work.
With a full, known good battery, turn on the headlamps and try starting the engine. If the headlamps stay bright, the contacts in the solenoid are bad. If the headlamps dim greatly or go out, the starter is shorted out and must be replaced.
Also try turning the crankshaft manually with a breaker bar and socket if you suspect that the engine may have seized up.

2004 suburban starter motor clicking but wont engage flywheel.Battery checkb uckfloyd944@yahoo.comed good,no corrosion on terminals.What do I check next?


It could be many things, of course the most common is the battery, and you say that is good. Even when you tryed boosting, i assume?
If it's not the battery, it might not be all the way in park. I have even heard of people rocking the vehicle back and forth in park to make it go all the way in to park, and start.
Next thing it could be is broken , loose or disconnected wires in the starting circuit. Inspect all wires at the battery , starter solenoid, and ignition switch.
Still nothing. Faulty starter solenoid.
Faulty starter.
Ignition switch.
Starter motor pinion jammed in your ring gear.
Let me know how you make out. Good luck.
