#1

Have replaced the battery and the alternator. Lights are working. But wont start without a jump. wont restart. Have had 2 mechanics look at it… First one replaced the alternator twice and checked the battery. Second one charged the battery, changed the altenator again, then ran a wire from the alternator to the battery ( so I could drive to work) It worked for 1 ride. and wont restart. Could this be an issue with the computer… Am I missing something??


#2

When it doesn’t start, does the starter motor turn the engine over (rrr-rrr-rrr) or not?


#3

it just clicks


#4

Could be the solenoid in the starter motor. Quickest way that is not too expensive is to buy and install a rebuilt starter. Or take the starter out and take it to an auto electric shop. How much DIY do you want to do?


#5

Have someone inspect the positive battery cable connection for corrosion.
