Starter solenoid or relay?

Recommended Posts

Im having trouble getting my trooper to kick over when it is cold. at first i thought it was due to an under powered battery so i changed it out wit a 650 cca battery. still dosent want to start when it is cold it just clicks. so then i put a heavy duty disconnect in because i thought it was drawing power when off, still didn't fix the problem. so i am wondering if there is a relay in the fuse box that could be getting weak or is there just the solenoid on the starter. it seems that if i keep "clicking" the starter eventually it will start. once running in the snow for a while then shutting it off it will "click" once or twice then fire up. it is starting to worry me wondering if it will just not start one day.

Im shure someone will know what to do here. Thanks

Kevin

Sounds like a weak connection or bad solenoid. I would again check connections for corrosion before I try replacing the solenoid. Sounds like the snow maybe giving you trouble in the area of corrosion.
