The car will was starting with the old battery (after a jump) but after we got a new battery, starter and cilinoid the car will do nothing but click when trying to start it. We HAVE gotten it to very nearly turn over once but no idea why. The strange thing is, while jumping, the volt gage on the dash will be at 13 but when we try to start it, it drops all the way to 0 and all lights dim. We are desperate to get this car running because it is a primary transportation and there is a newborn in the house.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!

John.

    make sure the battery connections are good and clean. if they are ok, you may need a starter motor replacement.

    Hi Roy, thank you very much for the prompt reply!

    We, of course, cleaned the terminals and connectors throughly and still have the same problem. The starter motor, is that not located in the starter itself, or is that a separate entity altogether, because it's a new starter. We are thinking that it might be the Park/Neutral Relay Switch...because the strangest part is the battery draining completely when trying to start it.
