    this problem has just started today and im baffled. i try to start my car, i hear the solenoid engage but i get nothing from my starter. if i try it 2-3 more times the car startes up fine. ive checked the lead coming from the battery to the starter to see if its loose or corroded, doesnt appear to be either of those. ive checked the voltage from my battery and its putting out 12.83 volts right now. and once its been running, if i turn the engine off then start it again it runs fine. it only seems to be doing this cold

    Suzuki samurai's have a similar problem, it sounds to be like you have a faulty wire somewhere in the relay. Check all the wires involved for continuity and let us know.

    after fiddling with it again, the lead wire was just loose, i guess when i checked the wires yesterday for corrosion. it fixed it.
