Check the ground wire. BOTH ends. Remove it and clean it and ensure a good connection.

I have a 2001 ford f150 i changed battery n starter n wont click nothing completely dead. What could it be the trucks been sitting bout 1yr maybe used once or twice


Several things. Ignition switch. Fuses. Wiring. What does it do when you turn the key to run, accessory, and start? What lights come on? Did you try turning the key on and jump starting the starter?

If the positive wire is hot, its connection is bad, check and clean all corrosion at the terminal connections to the actual wire and at the terminal connection to the battery. Do this for both battery cables. Hope this helps, let me know.

Starter clicking replaced and still doing same thing


Check your battery to make sure it has enough power and cranking amps to turn that starter and flywheel.  Make sure that your cables are good and move them around to see if that helps. Sometimes those cables can break and corrode inside the outer covering and you can't see it which makes it hard to diagnose. Clean your battery posts and cables. Also another thing you can try is starting in neutral or rolling your car back a few feet to allow it release some tension and hopefully free up allowing it to crank over easier. When you replaced the starter did you make sure to slide it in place and tighten it down good? Did you use shims to allow proper clearance room?...
