  1. Starter death...

    Probably going to go the Napa route. My thought process is O'Reilly's auto parts has a bad batch of starters but I was wondering if there was anything in my vehicle that could be causing the starters to fail? Peter L.
  2. Sooooo about 7 months ago I was in Vegas visiting family and the starter (original with 335,000) on it finally gave up the Ghost. I replaced it in my aunt's driveway with a reman starter from O'Reilly auto parts. it lasted about 6 months then started to do this NO START when it got hot. I would turn the Key and NOTHING no clicking no nothing. Batteries both check good. I had cleaned all the connections. so I replaced the starter with a new one also from O'reilly auto parts. When I took the old one in they tested it and said it was dropping current across the solenoid and was indeed bad. Now a week later, the BRAND NEW starter is doing the same shit! sooooo besides a run of bad starters from O'reilly auto parts... can anyone out there think of anything that could be killing these? it isnt a duty cycle issue as the engine fires up INSANTLY evey time. Soooo suggestions? Peter L.

    Yes jumping the starter terminals only produced cranking! No starting even with the ignition switch in the on position. Peter L
  6. Ok first post is a My truck wont start... please help post.So 1998 2500 with the 5.9L Cummins. Yesterday as I got in I noticed the airbag warning and ABS lights were on as I started the motor. Thinking it odd I shut down the motor and attempted restart hoping to clear the warning lights as I had never seen them on before. Then the engine failed to start. When the ignition key is turned from the on position to the start position there is a loud click heard from the left side of the engine compartment and the motor DOES NOT CRANK. The click will only be heard once and it takes shutting the ignition switch off and then attempting to restart to hear it again. In addition my blower switch does not work.Things I have done so far.1. Cleaned all the battery connections and recharged the batteries.2. Jumped the starter and the starter does crank. With the ignition switch in the on position the engine will not start when jumped.3. Swaped the trailer relay and starter relay. This produced one engine start ONLY and now we are back to the original symptoms...4. Replaced all the Multi use relays with new. Still same symptoms. Ok where do I go from here?Peter L
