BH Zero Turn PZ2555 Only clicks when trying to start. I don't know if it's the starter or solenoid. Whichever, my husband has replaced it last summer and the summer before. Should it go out that much?

SOURCE: 94 toyota carolla starter clicks eventualy starts

You have two options: replace the starter (easiest, but most expensive), or replace the contacts (cheaper, but more work involved).
In any case, you have to remove the starter. Disconnect the battery BEFORE you start. Locate the starter and remove the wires going to it. The starter is held onto the transmission with 2 large bolts. Remove both, and slide the starter out.

If you want to change the contacts, observe the starter, locate a metal plate held on with 3 bolts. Remove the bolts and the plate. You will now see a plunger, and 2 copper colored contacts. Those are what needs to be replaced. Changing the contacts is easy, just do one at a time, and ensure that all insulators are installed properly on reassembly.

SOURCE: 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee - will not start - starter

I also have a 98 Jeep Cherokee with the same problem. I know I probably need to replace the starter eventually but as of now I turn it to accessory only, pop it in neutral, then start it and it works every time when it wouldn't even try to turn over with it in park. Don't know why it works, but it does. Give it a try.

SOURCE: '92 Ford Tempo won't start.

You still have two components that need checking...perhaps you have a bad battery cable?! They do corrode inside sometimes making the battery hard pressed to send the current needed to run the starter. You may get enough amps and volts to run the lights but not enough for the starter.

You can try jumping the starter with jumper cables just to see if the works. You can leave the car in park and key off since the only thing you want to do is turn the starter.

Starter solenoid location


The Solenoid is located on the starter. Typically the solenoid/starter are replaced as one unit. Before you go replacing anything, rule out bad connections ,bad cables. Check all connections at battery. Especially check the ground connections from battery to engine block. See if the starter has a ground wire and check it. Check for corrosion in battery cables. Check connections on the starter, both the smaller wire and the larger cable from the battery. If you disconnect any of these wires, first disconnect the negative cable on the battery. Mechanics know how to 'jump start' the starter directly form the battery. If you know how to do this- try it. If you don't know how - DON"T TRY IT! What you can try is to connect a jumper cable from the NEGATIVE terminal of the battery to the BODY of the starter, not to any of the wires, and see if the car starts. This little test will rule out a ground problem

My 1997 Chevy Lumina will not turn on. I thought it was the starter since it started having difficulties turning on. The security light on the dash is permanently on. So i replaced the starter and tested...


REPLACE BATTERY CABLES THE POSITIVE BATTERY CABLE COULD BE SHORTING TO GROUND.REPLACE STARTER SOLENOID IF NOT BEEN REPLACED.BESURE TO PLACE BACK FLEXIBLE CONDUIT THAT GOES AROUND POSITIVE BATTERY KEEP FROM SHORTING TO GROUND. LAST TIME I SEEN BATTERY CABLES OVER HEAT WAS EITHER STARTER AND SOLENOID SHORTING OUT OR VERY LOOSE BATTERY CABLES CONNECTIONS. REPLACE BATTERY CABLES IF THEY ARE MELTED HAVE STARTER CHECKED OUT YOU COULD HAVE FAULTY STARTER STILL.

Starter Switch Does Not Start Engine


HI,
It sounds to me like the starter / solenoid area needs attention - I think the clicking will be the solenoid activating but the starter is not turning. Do the lights dim to zero when you turn the ignition switch? If so, it may be the starter itself at fault; if not, then the electrical connections to the starter should be checked for corrosion. If the terminal are hot after trying to start, that's a sign of corroded terminals.
Let me know how you get on.

Cheers, D
