Please check the following:
- Heavy current carrying wires between the two batteries. Any joint may be loose.
- Battery to engine ground thick wire.
- Battery to chassis ground wire.
- Battery to starter motor wire.
- Solenoid switch attached to the starter motor.
- Wash the battery terminals and posts with a mixture of Luke warm water and baking soda. (Immediately wash your hands with soap water)
- Spray wet type contact cleaner on all battery posts.
If the problem persists,
- Replace all the battery, starter and ground wires with slightly thicker wires.
- Service, repair or replace the starter motor assembly. The starter motor could also work fine being purchased from junk.

I have got the starter diconnected from my 2005 5.7 jeep gc but I cant get it out to replace it


1. Disconnect and isolate negative battery cable.
2. Raise and support vehicle.
3. Note: If equipped with 4WD and certain transmissions, a support bracket is used between front axle and side of transmission. Remove 2 support bracket bolts at transmission. Pry support bracket slightly to gain access to lower starter mounting bolt.
4. Remove two mounting bolts (2).
5. Move starter motor towards front of vehicle far enough for nose of starter pinion housing to clear housing. Always support starter motor (1) during this process, do not let starter motor hang from wire harness.
6. Tilt nose downwards and lower starter motor far enough to access and remove nut that secures battery positive cable wire harness connector eyelet to solenoid battery terminal stud. Do not let starter motor hang from wire harness.
7. Remove battery positive cable wire harness connector eyelet from solenoid battery terminal stud.
8. Disconnect battery positive cable wire harness connector from solenoid terminal connector receptacle.
9. Remove starter motor.

I need to find out how to take off and put on a starter on a 2004 chevy tracker


TESTING WARNING
During the following test, the starter motor must not be energized for longer than 5 seconds, otherwise you run the risk of burning out the starter motor coil.
  1. Remove the starter motor from the vehicle.
  2. Detach the field coil lead from terminal M on the starter motor.
  3. Using jumper wires, connect a 12 volt battery to the starter motor so that the negative battery terminal is attached to the starter motor housing and to solenoid terminal M, and that the positive battery terminal is connected to starter motor solenoid terminal S. The starter motor plunger should move outward; if it does not, replace the solenoid with a new one. Fig. 1: To test the solenoid plunger, first detach the field coil lead from alternator terminal M, then attach a 12 volt battery to the starter motor as shown . . . 90882g50.gif
    Fig. 2: . . . then detach the negative jumper wire from terminal M. The plunger should remain extended 90882g51.gif
    Fig. 3: Detach the other negative lead from the starter motor housing. The solenoid plunger should now retract to its normal resting position 90882g52.gif
    Fig. 4: Use an ammeter to measure the amount of current draw the starter motor uses 90882g53.gif

  4. Detach the negative battery jumper wire from terminal M on the starter motor solenoid, and check the plunger for movement. The plunger should remain extended; if the plunger returns to its resting position, replace the solenoid with a new one.
  5. While observing the solenoid plunger, detach the negative battery lead from the starter motor housing. The plunger should return to its normal resting position; if it does not, replace the solenoid with a new one.
  6. Reattach the 12 volt battery and install an ammeter to the starter motor as shown in the accompanying illustration. The starter motor should rotate smoothly and steadily with the pinion gear moving out, and the ammeter should display less than 60 amps at 11.5 volts (Samurai models), or 90 amps at 11 volts (Sidekick, Tracker, X-90 and Sidekick Sport models). If the ammeter does not display the specified values, or if the starter motor does not operate smoothly and steadily, replace the starter motor with a new one.
---
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. If necessary for added under-vehicle clearance, apply the parking brake, block the rear wheels, then raise and safely support the front of the vehicle on jackstands.
  3. From beneath the vehicle, label and detach all wiring from the starter motor solenoid terminals.
  4. Remove one of the two starter motor mounting bolts and loosen the other bolt until it can be turned by hand, then support the starter motor with one hand while removing the last starter motor mounting bolt.
  5. Lower the starter motor down and away from the engine and transmission. To install:
  6. Hold the starter motor in position and install the two mounting bolts. Tighten the two bolts securely.
  7. Reattach all applicable wiring to the starter motor solenoid. Ensure that the wiring terminals and connectors are clean and free of corrosion.
  8. If necessary, lower the vehicle.
  9. Connect the negative battery cable.

98 Durango will not turn over, replaced battery, battery cables, had started checked. Just get a clicking noise at starter like a dead battery. Will start some times.


Sounds like a bad connection. Clean all the connections first then if you have a clicking sound coming from the PDC (fuse box) on the drivers side under the hood then it sounds like you have a bad starter .
As the relay is clicking that means the ignition switch is good. Just insure that the relay is good. There is a spare in the PDC you can swap and check out so its the starter Starter/solenoid combo.take your volt meter and check battery volts while the starter is engaged, if you see very little change from the static voltage it's likely the starter bendix is being egaged into the ring gear but the high current side of the starter is not working, this is likely due to a dirty or worn commutator or worn brushes in the starter motor. If you do see a larger drop in voltage( say down to under 9.5volts) you more than likely have a current flow issue, possibly a weak cell in the battery, or a shorted starter motor winding.My best recomendation would be to remove the starter motor, and the battery, take them in with you to your local parts house and have them both tested, most parts stores will perform these tests for free, on the possibility that hey can sell you something.

Move the starter motor towards the front of the vehicle far enough for the nose of the starter pinion housing to clear the transmission torque converter housing. Always support the starter motor during this process, do not let the starter motor hang from the wire harness.7.
