When turning key I get a click of the selonoid but no turn over. I pulled the starter (2 years old ) and had it checked at the auto parts store they said it was ok. Battery is only one year old, and jump starter gives just the same selonoid click noise. Would I get the click noise if the starter relay is bad?
Do you
have the same problem?

CORRECT......THE SOLENOID IS A POSSIBLE FACTOR

...................THE STARTER AND BATTERY AS WELL!.....AND OTHER STUFF TOO!

I'VE SEEN PARTS AND BATTERIES BE BAD RIGHT OFF THE SHELF.....NOT TO MENTION ONE DAY- INFINITE, AS FAR AS SOMETHING MAN-MADE GOING BAD

LET'S START WITH THE SIMPLE STUFF

WE HAVE TO HAVE A GOOD BATTERY!

.........WE'LL ALSO FACTOR IN THAT "JUMP STARTING" ( A POSSIBLE GOOD SOURCE OF POWER) DID NOT HELP

BEFORE WE GO CRAZY (IN AN ORDERLY FASHION)

.........................LET'S CHECK CONNECTIONS!

SEE MY ANSWER IN THIS LINK BELOW!DISREGARD THE OTHER GUYS "COME BACKS".....LINKING SAVE ME A LOT OF PECKING

AFTER THE CONNECTION CHECKIN'---ATTEMPT A JUMP START

IF THAT AIN'T WORKIN', SNATCH THE BATTERY OUT AND TAKE TO A POPULAR AUTO PARTS STORE....HAVE IT THOROUGHLY TESTED (NOT JUST A VOLTAGE TEST)

THIS IS ANOTHER POST I ANSWERED THAT COULD AID YOU---READ TOWARDS THE END OF IT....THE "METHOD" MAY HELP SOMEWHERE ELSE....A124 DID WORK ABOUT A WEEK AGO FOR ME, ON ANOTHER PURCHASE

RETURN TO THIS THREAD WITH GOOD NEWS
