I have done that one before too...And it worked... LOL

The starter may be dead... Wondering if its getting power at the positive cable... The click is usually the solenoid kicking the juice and the starter drive... Wish I could be there to help..

I don't have time now...I have to go to work. I guess I will push the car off to the side and try some more tomorrow.

I just thought of something that I never even took any real notice about. I had forgot to disconnect the negative battery terminal (brain fart) until I was unscrewing that small ground from the alternator. I got a bit of a spark jump, and I stopped immediatly and disconnected the negative cable and finished the job.

Now I'm afraid I've fried something....any thoughts on this?

Could be an fuseable link or a fuse like I mentioned earlier.

If it were a fusible link you would get no click at all.
Try putting the old alt back on just as a test.
It did start with that one right?

put your meter on the starter posts, and see if you read 12 volts there. Next, how many amps does your battery say it is rated for. Have you tried using a starter you plug into the wall, that boosts the amp'*? Maybe you have enough volts in the battery, but not enough amps. Do all the accessory function right? Is the door chime loud?

I already went through the voltage/amp thing with him on MSN. I was thinking the same thing. But he also tried to boost the car with another car that was running. So it would at least turn over, maybe slow, but it would still turn over.


I still think there is a dead spot on the starter or something fried when he was removing the alt and didn't disconnect the battery.

I may as well give that fusible link a try...where is it located at? When a starter clicks, it usually clicks more then once right? Because mine only clicks once...all accessories work, I still have 12v. Battery is 750CCA.

I figure you should try what was suggested earlier by jr's3800, to test directly at the starter to make sure you are getting 12V.
