I suspect starter solenoid is bad. The starter motor has not given me any problems.

For a quick test, have someone hold the key to the start position. Rap on starter with a hammer. If it kicks over, replace the starter. It will soon fail again.


it is the solenoid with out a doubt


It could be a bad solenoid. Check the net, it is simple to bypass the solenoid. If it starts, replace the solenoid.
