Try cleaning the ends of the heavy duty cables. Earth to battery, battery to solenoid and solenoid to starter motor. If it still clicks with a fully charged battery, remove the starter motor and spin it backwards a few times. Then spin it with a connection to earth, but watch out for sparks and that it doesn't jump out of your hand. If it spins , replace it and try again. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
