More likely to be the battery or the battery clamp conections. Check to see if the towers are oxidized

2004 ion won't start. Lights work. When I turn key don't get series of clicks, get one snap.


That symptom usually means the solenoid on the starter is bad and no longer is completing the circuit to engage the starter. A new starter will likely solve that issue. A series of rapid clicks would indicate a week battery. You can try repeatedly turning the key to the start position rapidly, sometimes the starter wil start working. You can also try tapping the starter while somebody holds the key in the start position, if the starter engages place it.

How can I test the starter solenoid on 1998 Volkswagen Cabrio? I remember from many years ago that you can bypass it to verify if that is the part causing it to not start, but can't remember details, and...


The loud rapid clicking noise wounds like the solenoid is working. Your description sounds like not enough battery power.

Works like this: Enough power to fire the soleniod, but when the started in engauged, not enough power to run, voltage drops, solenoid disgngauges, then process starts again...

Try external power, like jumper cables...

In answer to yoru question, solenoids have typically, two smaller power connections, and two much larger connections...The big connections are battery in and out, and the smaller ones...: one is is the actuator, and one is ingintion resistor bypass. Ususally the small connector at the 2 oclock position is the actuator.

I suggest that you bench test this starter.

I had the same problem, could not figure it out. Looked all over the inter net found a post that said something about the ground wire that had a bad connection. So i followed the found wire and this is what i found. attached photos, plus whati did to fix it.

Starter clicks rapidly, not cranking, no ignition


It almost sounds like you have a loose connection at the battery. If the connection is loose it can cause the starter to click as you have described. Also it could be the starter itself. If the starter is bad (locked up) it can make the clicking noise and not start the engine. If you can get to the starter, try to tap on it with a hammer while someone is trying to start the engine. I hope this helps.

When you try to start the truck the clynoid will make noise but it will not start


The starter contacts are burnt inside the solenoid, this is a common problem, replace the solenoid or take it apart to verify the problem, the contacts are avail on the internet, very cheap. I am assuming you have a 1990 or newer truck, they all use a Japanese gear reduction light weight starter.
