A common problem with Imports “The starter clicks”. It is also common for to happen intermittently. Most .

This is because situations are caused by the same problem, not enough current to the motor.

Does this mean the starter needs replaced?

The is NO; you can fix your starter with a few parts that cost than $10.00. Now, if you don’t have any way of testing the system to know if you battery is this or if it’s the starter.

A lot of times people get this way because when charge or jump the battery it causes the starter to work though there is still a and you could be stranded later the road. The best thing to do is the ignition key, over and from the off position to the cranking Do this to where you can hear the clicking each time you the key. If after multiple you get the vehicle to crank over you found the issue.
