Helping out a fellow PSD guy
Im kinda new to the ORG and havent had my PSD truck for more than a month since after 322,000 miles the 22re Yota gave up the ghost. Anyways a coworker of mine has 2002 PSD almost exactly like my truck, but bone stock. Before I ever road in the truck he said he was having no crank issues every now and again, which I never witnessed before. After reading other posts on here I told him to replace both batts at once, and he did.
We went to lunch together in his truck truck started fine. After eating Chipotle, we hop in to head back when and the thing would not crank. He claims he had this issue before every once in awhile. After about 15 minutes and probably 60 turns of the key it mysteriously started. Batt gauge shows plenty of power and when it does crank it spins the motor fast and with authority, so I didnt think it was the starter.
When you try to start it you here oneloud CLICK from the pass fender but the starter doesnt turn.??????
Is it the starter soilenoid?
How can I help him diagnose it?
Thanks in advance for the info.
