I don't know about the rest of you but I've seen a good amount of starting problems within these forums and I've actually experienced starting problems yesterday. Although since then my problem has not repeated itself I just like to get some opinions of people who are mechanically knowledgeable.
My problem started when I left class Wednesday got into my truck and turn the key to turn it on and all I heard was an audible "click" and nothing. I thought my battery was dead until my radio came on and started playing and noticed all my dash lights were on. I turn the key again... and again heard the "click". Waited another few seconds and tried one more time and finally it started.
I was listening to my radio for like 2-3 hours before leaving my truck and figured maybe I had a low battery that cause a kind of hard start but either a battery has enough juice or doesn't have enough juice to start. Am I wrong?
Also today I opened my hood to look at my ground and noticed it is attached to our painted frames. Could painted frames cause a problem every now and then with a proper ground? I have an old 87 dodge ram and it specifically says within the repair manual to always attach the battery ground to an UNPAINTED piece of metal.
Just thought I get some more thoughts on this problem. If I have trouble starting again ima rough up my frame for all my grounds and see if that works. If it doesn't shes going to the dealer.
Also if you look at the second thread the problem was supposedly "cured" by a new transmission solenoid and a better ground. Hence why I feel this is a ground problem.
Here are a couple of threads with starting problems:
