HELP No Crank No Start Just a Click

So tried to start the jeep (05 5.7 75k) this morning and one click every time. Battery is 3 months old but i put a jump pack on it any ways and still nothing. I then got under it and beat on the starter to no avail. I have a starter coming in at the parts shop but want to get your guys' opinions before rip it apart.

Re: HELP No Crank No Start Just a Click

You might want to check the starter connections/terminals to see that the connections are tight....along with the battery but I assume you have already checked the battery. Wouldn't hurt and if this is the problem you will save the cost of replacing a starter that doesn't need replacing. Just ensure that you disconnect the negative batery terminal before you go putting a screw driver to the starter terminals.

Re: HELP No Crank No Start Just a Click

This seams to be a common problem with the wk but i was always told that if it clicks its the battery or corrosion on a connection on the battery from a loose wire or corrosion. When a starter goes bad the starter wont click at all it should be completely dead with no clicking. Now i wont let just anyone work on my cars and only trust one person because he is family otherwise i do all my own work and oly let him work on it when its a really big job and the lift comes in handy. So im not trying to say its not possible but can anyone confirm this with the wk or am i the only one that wont let anyone work on my cars cuz i know there all dirty and will lie to make a fast buck

Re: HELP No Crank No Start Just a Click

If it's the same thing that happened with my 06 the other week... Put it into neutral and move it a bit, then try and start.

My starter didn't like the position it was in on the fly wheeel, or it was somehow frozen. Moving it a bit, put it in a different place and it started right up.

Ummmm, moving the vehicle in neutral will have no effect on the position of the engine flywheel..... I thinks you just got lucky
