    Merry X-mas everyone. I'm new to the site. I have a 2005 Trilblaizer that is driving me nuts today. We drove it to church and back on Friday night with no problems what so ever. When my daughter went out out on Saturday morning it would not start. The battery is 3 months old; when I put a volt meter on it it reads 14 volts. The lights and radio come on but when you try to engage the starter it just clicks. I have not tryed to jump it yet as I wll need to borrow cables to do that. Has anyone ever had this happen to them in the past and if so what was the problem.

    Welcome to the Club MS. Check the batt voltage while you have someone crank it. Your batt sounds like it's probably good. If jumping it with another (good) battery doesn't garner you results, then check all your batt connections including ground to chassis & engine. If you had left smth on overnight to draw it down it probably wouldn't be showing 14V so this kind of looks like a loose connection somewhere. Also could be a faulty starter/solonoid but best to check everywhere else first so you don't waste money throwing parts at it..
