    #11222736 - 10/10/09 09:21 PM (8 years, 9 months ago)

So Ive been damn near bedridden with the flu and I drive to the store for lozenges expecting to be gone not but 15 minutes.
When I go back out to the ruck I find out my starter is shot and it wont start.
This shit always happens at the best possible time.

Are you sure its the starter?

Can you hear the solenoid clicking?

Theres no clicking, it just wont turn over. It starts to sound like it's gonna turn over and it doesnt.
The battery is fully charged and everything else runs fine, so Im pretty sure it's not the batter or alternator.

Does it crank once and stop?

Is there any clicking sound?

No clicking, it cranks once, sometimes twice like a "ruh-ruh" without the clicking at the end. I remember I got the clicking on my old truck but this one isnt doing it.

And the battery is fully charged?

If so, the brushes on the starter could be going.




Brushes tend to be cheaper, but newer vehicles tend to be a bitch to fix, rather than replace.

There may be enuf juice in the battery to run the accessories but not enuf to actually turn the starter.

Try putting it in gear and rolling it back a foot or so. Could have a damaged tooth on the starter gear.

Possibly, but if its turning over, the starter is spinning the flywheel.

It really sounds like low battery, or bad connection in the starter/solenoid.

It's had a hard time starting for the past month or two. It often took longer than usual, sounding like it wouldnt start then it would.
It's a 10 year old truck.
Battery is definatley fully charged.

Im wondering now if it might be a tooth. It started when I put it in neutral and moved it a couple inches.
