Customer Question

have early 2004 s40. when starting get no starter noise, several attempts of cycling key and things start happening. First get clicks like starter trying to engage, then get starter to turn over motor. then up and running. Not starter as they don't heal themselves. Any idea?

Hello and welcome to Just Answer!

First you will need to have your battery load tested. Most auto parts stores do this for free.

If you battery tests good and the connections are clean and tight the next step will be to replace the starter.

Please let me know what you find, or have any other questions or concerns i am here to help.

Thanks for being a excellent customer!
