Quote: I dove into it today. Started out the battery was about dead due to the somehow the dome light has been on for several days taping it down. So I had to replace it. Still no good but notice my ground cable was a bit loose and tarnished. So I replace the smaller gauge wire with a thicker gauge wire. I then got a very fast clicking sound from the starter for a few seconds and then it stopped. When I turned the nothing just as it has been doing. I am lost. The positive cable looks in great shape and I cleaned it anyways. Can there be anything else wrong before I replace the starter?
If this is happening when you are trying to crank it means the battery doesn't have enough 'oomph' to turn the starter motor. Try to charge or replace the battery and try again.
Quote: If you get the dreaded repetitive clicking it is usually a flat battery as the battery has enough power to get the solenoid going, but as soon as the connection is made and the starter motors draws current, the battery loses voltage and the solenoid disengages. Then the battery has voltage again and the process starts over.....click..click..click..click..click
