Cabsjeep One more thing. I'm trying to help him long distance. If that starter is in a bind or whatever it could kill that engine couldn't it?

Put the top bolt back in and I'll bet it starts right up. Bad ground or in a bind from bolt missing.

Fabrokoner If it just clicks and doesn't turn over I'd say a dead battery. Possibly caused by a bad alternator?

You can have enough juice for the accessories to work but not spin the starter.

Friend of mine called with a problem. He cranked his jeep and went about 50 yards and it quit. Gauges and radio work but said it won't even "click" when you turn the key over. Stater was replaced not long ago. If he taps on the starter the solenoid will try to "click". What could be wrong? Is the starter in a bind?
