Question type: Maintenance & Repair

service anti theft on

1 Answer


If the starter just clicks but does not actually turn the motor over then I suspect the solenoid has gone bad. It could also be a bad electrical connection so I would first clean the battery terminals and cable ends and make sure they are tight.
