Sounds like you probably have a bad starter... make sure the battery is good and has no corrosion or connection problems, then try tapping on the starter while turning the key if it starts then you're starter is bad and needs to be replaced. If it doesn't start then get a breaker bar and see if you can turn the engine to make sure it isn't seized.
thanks for the response but seems like you didnt read but i tried tapping the starter nothing the batt is deff good and i turnd the engine with a regualer wrench as long as the pully i turnt was the right one, i also jumped the starter solianoid with the samething just one click
ok gentlmen so i took out the stater took it to auto zone and it PASSED so what i did next was say to my self its autozone soo i bought a new/remanerfactured starter put it in and it now works =]
Yay!!! Its weird that it passed tho.
yea put the test it dosnt test it under load or anything but i took it off and if i shook it i could hear stuff moving thats the only reason i got a new one to.. but the test just sees if the gear moves thats it and in the test theres hardly any resistant on the gear
Well at least you got it running again.
