    drove the 95 ram 2500 home tonight so it was here to plow with. Let it sit for 2 hours went to start it and when i turn the key the only thing that happens is that the starter makes a click. Tried rolling the engine over to turn the starter maybe it was in a flat spot no luck hooked up jumper cables still nothing. So as it sits right now nothing happens other than electronics come on and stuff. KNow the battery is good because i can still opperate the plow with the ignition on. Think i have a bad starter? Thats kind of what i have left it for.
    Thanks

    i have had starters act like that before and i took a hammer and had someone try starting it while i laid on the ground and rapped the starter a few times with the hammer. that was just to get me out of a pinch you will probably need to replace the starter as soon as possible
