Hello everyone... Its been a while since I been around your forum..

Today I drove my 2004 SS to work and back home ... no problems..

After I put her in the garage and wanted to go some where.. My SS wouldnt start. All I get is one click and all electrical turns on. I can hear the fuel pump come on.. radio comes on.. I dont believe its the battery or altenator.

All I get is one click from the starter... Does anyone else believe that the starter needs replaced?

Thanks, Sorry if this in the wrong section. Please help.

Try and rock the car back and forth a bit when you start it. Sometimes the gears on the started are just bad enough that if you can do that itll start...or tap it with a hammer while someone starts it

That MAY confirm its the starter, I would also verify via multimeter that the battery and alternator are okay

Thank you for the info Impala123. Sorry for the dumb question.... Where is the starter located on these cars? Is it easy to get to with the car on a jack?

Thanks again.

No prob, thats what the forum is for.

Here's what your starter looks like

Here is a video of how to test the starter to confirm it is bad:

Thanks man.. I found it and had it tested it was good. Those damn things are a fun getting out.

The battery turned out to be bad. So it will get replaced tomorrow and I hope all is well.

Most likely your ignition module. Mines is in the dealership and thats the problem they found and they replaced it and now the cars starts according to them. Waiting to get the imp back though.
