Alright I'll start from the beginning. Let me start by saying my husband knows his truck better than he probably knows me
Every noise, how much power, I swear he knows somethings wrong before it even happens.
A couple weeks ago it started acting funny when you would try to start it. He'd turn the key, wait for the "wait to start" light to go off and then try and start it. It would make the normal starting noise, however it wouldn't turn over. So he'd lay off the key, and you could hear a small winding noise, a click, and he'd try again and it would start right up.
So this would happen every once in a while. Then this morning it did the same thing, however it just wouldn't start. The battery was drained. So he put a charger on it, let it sit and called me to start it a few hours later. It turned right over like nothing ever happened.
There were no lights left on, factory stereo, no remote start, nothing that could have obviously drained the battery. The batteries were fine till he tried a few too many times to start it.
I know when it wouldn't start before he would mess with the solenoid a little and it would fix the problem, maybe a bad connection?
Are these symptoms of a bad starter solenoid? Or something else?
