For about 8 months when starting my 2001 Isuzu Rodeo sometimes it would just click but eventually would start. Now it doesn't click at all and won't start. Is it the starter? Solenoid? Battery?

Do you
have the same problem?

8 months? Thats a long time.

Yes, sounds like a bad starter motor.

Yeah is what I thought. A couple of days ago it didn't click like it is doing now but it starting working again. Sometimes it would start the first time I turned the key. It actually seemed like if it was cold it did it more often. If it was warmed up it would start a lot easier.

Check the battery first. Have it tested.

Ensure all connections are clean and secure.
