1999 Jimmy Starter

My starter just makes a click sound when I turn the key. I repalced the starter and check the grounds from the battery to the body and frame. Also when i try to start it a couple of times the power wire from the battery gets very hot.

2001 jimmy starts occasionally other times it just clicks when I turn the key is that the starter .. New battery this month


Yes it sounds like the starter solenoid is worn or you've got a loose engine ground cable. Check to make sure that your engine's ground cables are in good shape, rust free, and secured tightly. The solenoid is part of the starter assembly and cannot be replaced separately.

Hi i have a 1984 35 hp evinrude electric start E35RLCRR that wont start or turn over


If you are sure that all connections are clean and bright, including the battery to the ground and battery cable to the solenoid, jumper from the battery (+) to the solenoid (+). If the solenoid clicks, but motor doesn't turn over, your solenoid is bad. Try jumpering momentarily from the battery (+) to the starter (+) and that should cause the starter to rotate. If that makes your starter rotate, your solenoid is still bad. Be sure that your starter has a good ground connection

1999 Subaru Forester starting problem


You either don't have power to solenoid or solenoid is bad. Disconnect solenoid power from ignition and check for power there using a light or a multimeter. Connect battery to the starting terminal and to ground. Turn ignition on go to start position. Light should ncome on. If not checl that circuit backwatds. If on then jump solenoid with a wire from battery positive. If OK it should click and start. If not check starter brushes and solenoid.

Dear Sir,
As you said when you try to start sound come and end it with a click click sound it clearly symptoms that battery low and as you said light are also dim, if you charged battery same problem you have, then check wire which run from battery to starter is lose or not and 2nd wire which runs from battery to body ground if both are ok, then sir it is problem in starter motor armature is short with body, replace that or better replace full starter assay.

Sounds like the starter is bad. The solenoid is working, (click sound) but the starter is not working. I would also check your battery cables.
