Australian Car Repair Issues? Ask an Auto Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is***** single click or multiple clicks? Thanks.
This most likely means the starter has failed. You can use a multimeter, access starter, and verify both wires at starter have at least 11v while trying to start, if so replace the starter. You can also remove starter and have it tested at your local parts store. Sometimes hitting starter will allow it to work again if you are stranded right now. Here are replacement instructions for starter, this would be around a $300 job at a shop. Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help. Thanks.
If you are hearing a single click when trying to start then same thing applies. Let me know if you have questions or run into questions, you can reply to this answer at any time without additional fees. Thanks.
Hitting the starter lightly is your only option and that doesn't always work. Next step would be to test/replace starter. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.
Here is a picture, let me know if you have more questions. Thanks.
Hit it anywhere and you will need to hit it hard, you won't break it so don't be afraid to hit it hard. I'm only giving it about 50% that it will work. So hit starter a few times, try to start. If it doesn't work repeat a few times. If it still doesn't work you will need to replace starter. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.
I'd also like to mention if it does work it is only a temporary fix so either way starter needs to be replaced. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.
You will need to get underneath vehicle to hit starter as it is alot harder to access from on top. Once you get down there you will see it easily. I circled starter in picture you took.
