95 No Start

Alright so Im at college and my dad has been driving my truck around, its a 95 PSD and he said it cranked slow so he put the battery charger on it and then tried to fire it up. The only thing it does is click. He said that he thinks its one of the solenoids, he tried to jump across the solenoid but it wouldn't start. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Alright, last night swapped the solenoids and no difference. Guess its time to put a starter on it.

Re: 95 No Start

Before you put a starter on it check the cables. I bought a starter a few years ago in haste only to figure out that my positive cable was corroded, and I had a bad ground! The cables are a common problem on these trucks and have tricked many. My "bad" starter is still in my garage as a spare since it wasn't really bad.
