Check your cables for corrosion; if there is any,clean them or replace them. Clean the connections at the starter and clean all grounding wires; test the starter regardless if you think it is good. Clean the battery terminals.

No, a starter cannot cause a battery to fail to charge. It could cause the battery to discharge quickly.

The starter or battery could be weak. The weakness will cause the starter to turn too slowly to start the truck.

It is the selonoid unforutnately it is built into the you probably have to purchase a new starter....about 170.00

bad starter or bad connection to starter or bad ground on battery or starter

1) Check the battery cable connections. They should be clean & tight. 2) Check the connection at the starter. They should be clean & tight. A loose ground cable on the battery. Check ground cable on the starter.

check battery if it has water and check the starter

Check your battery for loose connections and check your alternator.

A bad starter. A loose connection @ the terminal ends-the battery cables-the starter solonoid-IF IT has Rubber covers around the battery ends corrosion from battery acid could cause it.EVEN a bad ground on the engine from the battery 2 the frame.(battery cables) The battery cable ends could be corroded and should be cleaned. The next step would be to check the starter selenoid and then the starter.

YesFirst if the starter is bad the car will not start, if it will not start it can not charge the battery.If the starter will not work it can mean there is an electrical problem that will also prevent the alternator from charging the batteryThe starter itself CAN NOT CAUSE CHARGING PROBLEMS!The extra load on the battery can ruin the battery and that can ruin the alternator. But before that NO.

Yes. Without sufficient charge, the starter will not have enough amperage to crank.

No, unless you were hit hard enough to damage the battery or battery connections.

Sounds like a starter issue. Bad wire to the starter could cause it.

if you have good battery and cable connections, the starter motor or starter relay is bad

Corrosion on the wires, bad starter or starter solenoid, worn flywheel or flexplate, many things. Even just corroded battery terminals could cause no start.

no , only the concrete and other cemented floors ....

starter, starter relay, battery, high resistance in batter/starter cabels just a few things that will cause this.


Weak battery, bad connection Bad starter

Several things a weak battery , the terminals on the battery are not tight enough or a bad starter.
