Starter wont engage just clicks


Stupid fucking starters brand new, its clicking at the starter itself, when i jump the solenoid at the fender its the same thing, just clicks at the starter. Wtf causes this bullshit?

yeah i took him back to go push start his car
but we figured that we would play around with the wires a bit
and we got it to engage and now it starts perfectly but now the
starter stays engaged longer after the car is on

Yeah same think happened to my friend, the started stayed engaged, he had to replace it.

Nice thing for you if it is the starter and you just bought it, ya can take it back and swap it out for no fee, at least you should be able too, if ya yell enough.

The starter motor will not do anything unless the starter gear is able to pop out and engage the flywheel. If yours is sometimes just clicking and not popping out and engaging and sometimes staying engaged too long and continuing to run, that plunger part of the starter that moves that gear is bad or maybe the starter itself is not shimmed correctly and it is binding.

better not be the fucking starter that shits brand new, if i run the big power cable from the starter to the battery, and the smaller solenoid cable to the starter solenoid on the fender, it starts and doesnt stay engaged those few extra seconds after it starts. Well untill today when it wouldnt start at all. Then i put both wires coming from the starter to the solenoid and it starts but stays engaged a few seconds.

Oh and my motherfucking clutch is slipping, and its barely a year old

Im going to the bank to talk to them about a streetbike tomorrow this cars gona make me stab someone
