Thanks for posting

It can mean the starter is bad but it can also mean that there is no voltage getting to the starter, do you have a volt/ohm meter or a 12 volt testlight to check the starting circuit.

A couple of possible problems:

Low battery voltage

Loose or corroded battery connections

Bad starter relay

Defective clutch start switch ( if it's a 4x4 try using the clutch start over ride switch)

Open circuit in starter solenoid

Looking forward for your reply.

Leave the question open and just reply here again. If any problem just log in and go to "my questions".

Check to make sure voltage is getting to the clutch switch. If ok, disconnect the starter solenoid wire, depress the clutch all the way down and check for voltage at the solenoid wire.

How much are you being charged?
