Question about 1992 Isuzu Trooper
When trying to start all relays , start and restart click starter doesnt . Battery has 12.24 volts and starter has been checked
starter solenoid is getting hot and sticking. you can replacae the solenoid rather than the whole starter. while youre at it, clean all the wire connectors and terminals with some sandpaper to ensure the best possible connection and transfer of energy.
Is it an automatic transmission?
Automatics regularly suffer this way. The starter is right next to the exhaust manifold. When the solenoid gets too hot, it takes a lot of "juice" to build up the same level of magnetism. Your wimpy wiring from the dash board can't provide what you need. You need to provide more amperage by installing a relay to directly pull power from the battery. See this thread for a diagram.
Thanks for contacting Fixya.
