Wel, first off, my car is a 86 SE Auto. i replaced my battery because it just wouldnt hold a charge. I hooked up my new one hoping my car would run.....nope....
So then, i tried everything from trickle charging to 50 amping it to start it but got nothing But CLICK CLICK .......CLICK. Nothing, no errr, nothing. So then i tried jumping it, and that worked, a couple of times. And even then, it wouldn't run again after shutting it off and immediately attempting to turn it over again.
Soooo, now i got a new starter, I get it all in, nice and purdy, i turn it over, and all i hear is an erratic clicking. At this point im going, ohhhhh god, there goes my flexplate. So i immediatley dropped the starter again and everything was fine. I've tried every shim combo in the book, and even tried turning the car to ACC and laying a screwdriver from both leads to get it to crank. but of course, nothing but the erratic clicking. My cousin who works at O'reilly Auto Parts (hes a manager) told me that the clicking was the solenoid clicking extremely fast from the fact that it is new. He then told me that the starter i gave him was perfectly fine! What's the problem? He seems to think its either my Ignition switch or a bad ground.
any and all help will be GREATLY appreciated!
