Hey, man. Long time no talk. Try the starter, it went bad on mine and would just click when I turned the key. Happened all of a sudden too. Fix it, then delete this post and ask $1,000 for it /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

try cleaning the battery terminals first /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
The problem I'm having is after mine sits for a little bit the contacts in the start solinoid get corroded over, stick a battery charger on it and keep turning the key till the battery dies, then let it charge up and I bet after about 20-30 ties clicking it it will start. Drive it around the block, shut it off and start it a couple more times
