No. The starter only comes into play when you are cranking the engine.

2003 LR discovery. Went to turn ignition on. Suddenly went completely dead. No power to anything. Wouldn't think battery is issue with such a sudden shut down. What should I check first?

Check battery terminals for corrosion. If none is found at battery posts also check the other end of the cables where they connect to the stater motor and ground (ground is usually at the engine and or car's frame).

New stater, stater still makes clicking sound

First you should check to make sure the engine is not locked up by turning it over manually. If you can turn the engine manually, then check your battery terminal ends to make sure you have good, clean and tight connections. Typically, a faulty electrical connection is the main culprit that will cause your situation. If you still suspect a faulty connection, try having someone turn the ignition key while you wiggle the battery cables to see if it will try to start. This should help you narrow down the problem area.

My 2000 explorer will crank on some days but if i crank it and drive it i wont start again till the next morn what could be wrong

a good area to check is the ignition stater itself. try to knock on the stater under the hood when it does not crank and see if in the process it starts. if it starts then u may need a new stater. you may still need a mechanic to check on the entire electrical system of the engine that inclueds the coils and the sparks. thanks
