The curse strikes again..this time it struck my starter

So I left my dad's house after putting my stock rims back on because of my newest project (Yay background info) I'm painting my tenzos gold, like this:
Rep to 5SpdH22 for the photoshop.

blah blah.. left my dads with the lude like this:


Get to my mom's house, go inside for a few.. etc etc.

Leave to go to my buddy's house to work out, get in the lude.. clutch in turn key.. Click. I'm thinking to myself "I'm an idiot I left my headlights on" reach to turn them off..lights are off...

Get outa the car, push.. Pop start starts right up. Sweet. Let it run for about 10 minutes. Shut off, turn key.. Click.

Yay starter problems. Should be diagnosing and fixing it tomorrow. Any suggestions of what to check first?

Thanks guys

have someone crank the car while you try to listen for the solinoid from the starter.

Re: The curse strikes again..this time it struck my starter

if its ticking just tap the starter a couple times with a hammer or something, or just buy a new one.

Re: The curse strikes again..this time it struck my starter

Yup, that clicking is, and I may be wrong, but I believe it means your solenoid is almost shot. If it has just started, repeatedly trying to start will hopefully work. After a few tries, one should catch and start it up. Or, you can get out and whack it with a hammer. But eventually.....it will be completely dead beyond hope. And it will need to be replaced. I had my starter go on me last year and it was exactly like that. Hope you get things sorted. Peace.

Re: The curse strikes again..this time it struck my starter

So me and my buddy replaced the starter today..still didn't start.. turns out a wire for the clutch interlock switch magically cut itself in half. Put the oem starter back in.. runs fine. took 3 minutes of work to fix the actual problem... like 2 hours of wasted time FML lol.
