So I was using my headlights to see while bbqing about a week ago went to start it and it only clicked once So my thought is bad battery or starter but the sound of the click comes from the fender so I thought it was the starter solenoid. My battery may be bad but I borrowed a friends optima and it did the same thing. All my dash lights and dome lights were on but no turn over. I bought a new solenoid and put it on now there is now lights or anything. Ive been told maybe its connected with the tranny problem? or the ignition switch? Thoughts??????
