Hi and Welcome to JustAnswer! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to help you with your vehicle trouble.

Pavlin Koev :

check battery connections as pull hard on the cables

Pavlin Koev :

if they are good and tight, then it is either starter relay or starter is bad.

Customer:

How hard is that to fix?


 

Pavlin Koev :

just whan to make sure one thing, are you hearing glow plug relay clicking or click is there every time you attempt to start.

Customer:

the click is there every time i attempt to start

Pavlin Koev :

do you see large relay close to the right battery on inner fender side, positive cables from battery will go to it

Pavlin Koev :

and the other large cable goes from relay to starter.

Customer:

yes

Customer:

ok

Pavlin Koev :

if you have test light check if power will go to the starter side when it clicks

Pavlin Koev :

if does not then it is only relay

Customer:

i dont have a test light, but might be able to get one

Pavlin Koev :

if you bridge both large terminals with old screw driver it will turn the starter motor.

Pavlin Koev :

if screw driver is only sparking and motor not turning

Pavlin Koev :

then starter motor is not good.

Customer:

cool, i can do that.

Pavlin Koev :

relay is about $20 starter about $220

Customer:

hopefully it is only the relay

Pavlin Koev :

they do fail

Customer:

i will try your suggestion and see what i can find out. thank you for your help.
