Have a load rest done on the battery as it may be fully charged 12volts but if there is a bad cell it will drop to under 7 under load.

SOURCE: pull a bad started and i have no power to the car at all and the battery is fully charged

Check the starter terminals. Sounds like a bad ground. Also, make positive the battery cables are really tight on the battery posts.

Did you disconnect the battery prior to removing the starter? If not, you may have blown one of the big fuses located on the same side as the battery cables.

SOURCE: When the ignition key is turned a clicking noise is heard.

Sounds like a bad ground. If the battery voltage does not drop when the starter is engaged, the starter is not getting the juice. Check the ground connection again. 90%

Check your ground wire for battery where it connects to your frame.

Also check/clean the connections where the positive wire goes to the starter solenoid. Any connection you run into from the battery, clean them off with a wire brush or sandpaper.

Starter Solenoid can also be failing/dead, these can be tested for free at most auto part stores if you remove them from the vehicle.

Car will not turn on like battery is dead but battery has full charge

type and year of is helpful so we`ll go generic----start by checking the connections at battery for corrosion or damage if good than check power to starter if none check wiring and connections also check power from ignition switch as well as fuses.also try turning key to accessory step on brake and move shifter to neutral than try starting if starts shifter may be out of adjustment or damaged this would be your basic troubleshooting for dead type battery when battery is fully charged but always recheck your battery that it is fully charged

I would check for voltage at the starter from the battery and from the key switch via the neutral safety switch.
If there is no voltage at the starter from the battery check the fuseable link wires and the ground connections.

Replaced failed starter with new one on my 1977 porche 924, turn key and nothing. I have a fully charged battery.

check power and ground cables for fit and corrosion. If ok check starter switch wire(the little one) for voltage when key is turned,if none is ignition fuse/switch problem.

It won't turn over and gauges won't come on. battery is charged

check the ignition switch to see if power is going through it with key on. if any other thing works with key on, then there is some power through switch. check switch power.

If your battery is full charged I'd give a 90% chance your starter is the problem. Sometimes you can tap the starter with a hammer while someone has the ignition key in the start position and the starter will work. Also make sure your battery terminal connections are clean and tightend properly so the full power is able to reach the starter.
