Re: wont start
Have you tried jump starting it? Sounds like its just a dead battery.

Re: wont start
Have the battery tested. If it is ok, then you probably have a bad cable or connector.

Re: wont start
Sounds like a starter or starter solenoid.

I see. What else have you done and not told us about? You have to give us a complete picture here, not one sentence that tells us nothing.

Re: wont start
thats what everybody has been telling me


i have checked the fuses and and tryed bypassing the solenoid on the fender and i have tryed knocking on the starter but nothing has worked

Re: wont start
then your starter is toast go replace it and you should start.

also have you put a test light on your main power wire and little wire going to your solenoid???

i'm still holding to sayin you need a new starter

Re: wont start
If you properly bypassed the solenoid and still just clicks than what colinS said is 100% .... Starter

Re: wont start
Bypassing the solenoid mearly rules out the solenoid as the culprit. It could be the starter, any of the electrical connections, or the cable.

How old is your battery?
