5 Answers


New set of ignition wires...couldn't hurt~!


May not be the starter solenoid but the brushes in the starter are bad.


ignition coil module?


of course you got a Brand NEW battery and new cables too~ be sure the cable to the block also can make 50 amps~


Try tapping on the starter with a hammer while trying to start vehicle at the same time if vehicle starts replace starter.
