Can the Starter freeze up?
After a night of the recent Blizzard my Ford F150 didn't make a sound when I turned the key. I was getting good power from the battery. all electrical seemed fine other than the heater that didn't go on. I am wondering if the starter may have froze and if so how would I unfreeze it
Just give it a few raps with a rubber mallet.
Starters do lock up from time to time. Maybe park it where it can thaw, carefully use some heat on it or smack it with a dead blow hammer or as Ken suggested.
I had this happen years ago when I lived in WI and my neighbor told me to wrap an electric heat pad around it and let it sit for half an hour. I did it, it took an hour, but it worked.
