so this is the 3rd new starter.. still does the same thing...
once in awhile it will start, once in awhile it will click like the starter is bad. its got new battery, new cables, gets 11.9v to the ignition wire that connects to the starter when the key is turned to start.
when it clicks like the starter is bad, i can take a jumper wire straight from the battery to the starter ignition wire and it will start, everytime.
whats the difference of getting 12v from the ignition wire, or a jumper wire, would that .3v difference be whats causing the no start?
now keep in mind when it clicks, if your holding your hand on the starter, you can feel the drive clunking and not engaging..
also you can whack it with a rubber mallet a couple times and it'll crank..
and its totally random, it'll start 20 times in a row with no problem, then click.. once its jumped, or beat on, it'll start fine for another 10-20 times, then click...
