    1997 f350 Powerstroke. Went to start it up tonight and it wouldnt. batteries had plenty of juice and solenoid was clicking...do you think the starter is seized? I tried tapping on it but it didnt do anything. Had been working fine up until now. Thanks in advance for your help!

    I would check batt voltage then make sure there is power at the starter when key is turned. Just because the you hear clicking dosen't mean it not bad. I had that happen once. The check the starter. Good luck

    Check and clean all your connections. Most part stores can check the starter for free. Make sure you are getting power to the starter side of the solenoid.

    thanks guys

    pulled the starter, it was bad, got a new one at no cost cause i had a lifetime warranty, put it in, and the trucks back on the streets...had to do this all in the parking lot of the local park where it wouldnt start last night after basketball :)
