" Solenoid clicks but no starter."

The solenoid is making a noise because of low voltage. That is likely caused

1. A weak battery (charge it & check it per tip # 49. Or get it load

2. Dirty grounds/connections (remove the cables & clean the connections)

3. Bad cables or incorrect sized cables (replace them - see tip # 41)**

4. Bad ground between the starter & the block. (pull the starter away from the block & clean the mating area - see tip # 36)

Yes, you could have a defective starter, but you need to check the most likely causes of your problem and eliminate them from the equation: the battery and connections.

Jumper cables aren't an effective way to test a defective starter or battery.
