Okay, I'm in need some some help. I've tried searching the forum, but my problem seems pretty specific, and I'm not sure of the terminology to parry it down to the right search parameters.
On to the problem:
Went out to start the truck this morning - it was about 35 degrees with light frost. After turning the ignition, the starter didn't turn and the there was a loud, repetitive clicking from behind the instrument cluster. Power worked fine - all windows, radio, etc., worked.
Tried again this afternoon, and it did the same thing in 50 degree weather. Despite all indications it wasn't battery, I tried jumping it, but that didn't work.
Guy at O'Reilly thought it might be a relay, so I checked all of those and the fuses -- all fine.
When the GF turned the ignition while I was looking under the hood - the clicking sounded more mechanical and less electrical that when I was in the cabin, and also seemed to be coming from under the engine cover, down near the firewall. This is as far as I've gotten.
Any help determining this problem would be appreciated. Thanks!
