98 SC2 won't start

Asked by Nov 01, 2016 at 05:34 PM about the 1998 Saturn S-Series

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car has been starting fine, until today after work.  When I try to start it, all I
get is a series of rapid clicks.  I think that's a solenoid issue.  I replaced the
starter a few months ago, so that shouldn't be an issue.  Any suggestions?

check battery voltage, should be 12.4vdc. If battery is good and still won't turn over, check all battery cables for corrosion and make sure they're tight. If all cables are ok, check for voltage at the starter solenoid small terminal. If voltage is present and still no crank, replace starter, again
