97 Ranger only makes one click when I try to start

Asked by Aug 24, 2016 at 03:03 PM about the 1997 Ford Ranger XLT Extended Cab 4WD SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

A couple months ago my starter went out and had it
replaced. Its been working like a charm ever since, except
until last Friday when I went to leave for work and it just
made one click...just like it did when the starter went out.
So I had a friend come check it out and thought it was the
starter too. So I took it back and exchanged it for a new one
since it was under warranty. I put it in myself and then tried
to start it....same thing!!! When I try to crank it, after a few
times the doors lock then unlock themselves for some
reason. What should I do?

First try jumping the vehicle to see if it will start. If it starts have alternator tested should be charging at 14 volts if not replace alternator if charging ok have battery tested.
