Yes, just because it clicks is no indication that it is operating properly, the click is the coil energizing up and pulling down the contact plate, but if the plate or contact points are burned or eroded enough they won't make a connection.

what if it will crank if you tap on the starter. I have an 06 starter has been replaced relay is fine, sometimes it runs just fine, other times it will not crank, just click click.. if you hit the starter it will crank..... frustrated!
