put in new start on a 1999 buick rivera 3.8 sc and rebuilt engine but all we get is clicking sound
First let start by suggesting have someone to turn on the headlights and turn the ignition while you look at the headlights. If the lights blinks or go dim then check your battery connections or the battery itself. If by chance all checks out ok..tap on the starter sometime the solenoid switch sticks. If all else fails, there are group of wires (2-3) leading to/from the wires going to the ignition coil. Make sure those wires are grounded welled.
Also be sure that you have the correct starter. The 3.8 and the 3.4/3.1 starters look almost identical. The correct starter for the 3.8 is slightly longer and slightly bigger (fatter) than the 3.4/3.1 starter. HTH. -Jim
