Starter clicks

So I had this problem not too long ago where I get into the rig and try to crank it over. The relay and the starter click, but not enough to actually crank. It just makes a constant clicking noise as I try to start the rig. I put a new starter in and same problem, I'm at a loss currently.

I had similar problem on my 2,7TD. Replaced starter and within a week it was doing it again.

 

Had another spare starter that did it as well.

 

Auto electrician said the problem is that our cabling is getting old and can't carry the current needed anymore.

 

He installed a relay at the starter that does the switching instead of it happening at your key. Problem solved and all three the starters work perfect after that.

the big positive terminal cable was an issue for me as well, seems it has a lead connector for the battery side that got corroded (didn't know lead corrodes!). I found that after replacing the starter in an unnatural position (I felt like working in a Circus and had to crawl through a small circle).

 

My advice: don't replace the starter before checking it's connections. It can save you a lot of hassle and time.
