Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

It sounds like the starter solenoid has gone bad. If you listen closely is the click coming from the solenoid?

John my problem is that the solenoid did not fix the problem so I cannot give you a rating

You replaced the solenoid and it still is doing the same thing? Can you turn the engine over manually by hand?
