Customer Question
Hey Doug!My '02 Eclipse has...
Hey Doug!My '02 Eclipse has stopped starting. It makes one hefty *click* but it won't turn over at all. I can turn on wipers, lights and adjust windows perfectly so I don't think it's the battery, and there's no sign of corrosion.Any ideas?Thanks,
Jordan

One single loud click typically means the starter has failed. With a multimeter you need to monitor battery voltage going to both wires at the starter, each wire should show at least 11v with key in start position. If voltage is good this proves the starter is the problem. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.
