You might have to make some electrical checks with a volt meter at the starter itself. The solenoid trigger wire should have battery voltage on it when you turn the key to start.





Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.

Part quote from top ">>when I try to turn the key it turns really rough like I have to put a lot of pressure it does this sometimes<<"


What feel rough? Key or engine trying to turn or what? First you said single click which is usually a cable connection to me which you would see with a check as Discresignals suggested. Now added a new battery and starter so what went wrong to begin with?


Can you turn this engine by hand or by crankshaft bolt a full circle without too much effort? If this engine is wildly tight that's the real problem not battery, starter or connections IMO.


Some single click issues when starter requested are a total loss of connection of a battery cable even if tight could heat up, total loss from high load of starter and usually will reset clock and radio but later other lights and things work. There should be a negative connection to engine block or cables inside can fail and leave insulation looking fine. Volt drop or drop out would show that with Discretesignal's test as well.


Suggestion on things like this: Test stuff. Was old battery really bad and is new one any good? Ya know, there's a high failure rate of even new junk sometimes just makes the whole job harder, wastes time and money,
