The truck dosent start with new baterry . just makes one clik sound when you try to start it

If you just installed the battery then it may need to be charged. Use a trickle charger and leave it on till it is done.

Sounds like there is a bad conection at the starter

if your going to snug the eire ends up disconect the battery first

I just replaced a starter in a 1999 jeep grand cherokee and it doesn't start?could I have done something wrong,? and if so what could be wrong ?

What you likely did wrong was to assume the starter was bad without doing any testing. So, do you have power at the main lead of the starter? When the key is turned to "start" is there power at the small terminal next to the main one there? Have you checked the relay in the power distribution center (and fuses)? Is the neutral safety switch good? Is the ignition switch and wiring good? Is the battery fully charged and was it load tested? are the terminals clean and secure? (both ends of each). Unless you can verify these items, it is easy to mis-diagnose a starter problem. Also: Can you turn the engine by hand? Chances are it's good, but the new starter could also be defective!

Car not starting, but it's not the battery.

on some older cars i've actually tapped the starter with a hammer (not real hard but a good tap) and that seemed to work. its only to get it started. don't assume that it will fix the problem though. you need to get a new starter and/or solenoid.

95 jetta wont start unless you pop start it i changed the starter i have all the power just when i turn the key nothing

check your fuses under the hood and under the dash
check polarity of battery (if you unhooked booth leads)
is the battery any good?
you probly conected the leads to the starter incorectly (recheck them)

(the following asume your tur n key ignition system is functioning properly)
to test your tur n key system simply hook up a test light to the small lead running to the starter cylynoid "while the wire is disconected" and have a friend turn the ignition over. [dont furget to test the test light first lol]

or even got the wrong starter completly (usaly a store problem)
did you " bench test" the new/used starter befor installing it ?
iv goten brand new starters doa

is the ground strap hooked up ? is there corosian on the battery posts or any of the high amperage conections?

is the cylynoid on the starter or somewhere else under the hood?
cautiously try to bypass the cylynoid ie run a hot wire to the small lead on the cylynoid
(this can usaly be done by jumping from the main red wire on the starter to the hot lead of the cylynoid)

notes: when bypassing the ingnition system (jumping the cylynoid)
DO NOT have the ignition in the on postion and it is best to remove the lead from the cylynoid (incase of a short in the wire's some place)

if nothing remove the large red wire on the cylynoid and touch it directly to the starter lead itself (there will be a fair amount of spark when doing this its normal) but make shur you are conecting to the starter lead and not a gound point as this will cause exsesive sparking that isn't good
dose the starter tur n the engine over
back track untill you find the fault be it starter itself,cyclynoid,wiring,blown fuse,corosion,bad battery,

still cant find the problem take it to a shop!
hope i helped yah
