You need to check all your wireing from your battery to you silenoid to your starter you might have a bad connection some where. Clean the battery posts really good and the battery terminals. I fixed mine by scraping the battery post with a knife after using battery cleaner. I thought I had to change the starter, but that's all it was- the dirty post.

If it does not start and just makes a clicking sound, this is an indication of: a low battery, poor battery connections, or a defective starter solenoid ( next to the battery hooked up by the short positive battery cable). Check and clean your battery cables first , then look to the solenoid if you know the battery is fully charged. I hope this helps you. Mark
