Hi and Welcome to JustAnswer! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to help you with your vehicle trouble.
check battery connections as pull hard on the cables
if they are good and tight, then it is either starter relay or starter is bad.
How hard is that to fix?
just whan to make sure one thing, are you hearing glow plug relay clicking or click is there every time you attempt to start.
the click is there every time i attempt to start
do you see large relay close to the right battery on inner fender side, positive cables from battery will go to it
and the other large cable goes from relay to starter.
if you have test light check if power will go to the starter side when it clicks
if does not then it is only relay
i dont have a test light, but might be able to get one
if you bridge both large terminals with old screw driver it will turn the starter motor.
if screw driver is only sparking and motor not turning
then starter motor is not good.
cool, i can do that.
relay is about $20 starter about $220
hopefully it is only the relay
they do fail
i will try your suggestion and see what i can find out. thank you for your help.
