THis has never happened before. Has always been reliable and never had an issue. I drove it earlier today and it was fine. We changed the blower for the AC and when I went to start it to check it out it would not start

Do you have a wooden handled broom you can use to tap on the start as some one is trying to start the engine?

Do you know anything about the AC Blower
Expert:  KALAMYKID replied 1 month ago.

YES But you posted the starter will only click. You may have a brush in the starter that is not making good contact with the armature and tapping it with a broom handle can loosen the brush up so it can make contact again.
