Put a new battery in, and it still wont crank over. Why?
I checked the battery cables and terminals, fuseable link and anything around battery, all are good, clean and tight, but still get nothing. It makes a click sound at the battery area when I turn the ignition and a kind of hiss noise comes out around the bottom of engine, which led me to believe it's the starter that is trying to crank over. I could not locate the starter for this truck. Anybody whose had this problem, please help; desperate for wheels to and from work, bus sucks. Thanks.
Hi Animal, This definitely sounds like a starter problem. Your starter should be located near the bottom of the vehicle at the rear of the engine. I would also think about replacing the solenoid at this time - they are not very expensive. Hope this helps!
Thank you. Do you mean the starter solenoid?
