Outlander won't start

Went to start my 06 outlander and it would just click. This was after just riding it for ten minutes. Cleaned the battery connections, tried jumping it on the battery and directly, and still just clicking. Probably missing something small, could use some advice. Checked all the fuses also.

Here are a few simple things:

Do you have a DSS key/ignition? Have heard they can be a little cantankerous at times. Ever bent? Remove, clean, dielectric grease dab and replace.

Inadvertently knocked the kill switch to off position?

Check shifter in park or neutral. Sometimes shows park or neutral on pod, but not synched at sensor.

That click typically is the starter solenoid if the battery is good then it could be the starter going bad. Staters will sometimes act up when they are hot but work when they are cold. This is due to the copper winding starting to develop cracks in them or the solder which expands and breaks the current flow when they are hot; ie 10 minutes after riding. Since you tried jumpers and still just a click it is likley the starter. Wait till it is cool (morning) and try it;if it works. Solenoid could be bad also just tap it with something while turning the switch.

I cleaned the key, moved it around. That seems to be okay. I also thought it was the starter, just hoped it was something else. Thanks for the help.

Tap on starter with wrench while you crank. I've gone on dozens of wrecker calls where I didn't tow the car due to a few whacks on the starter or gas tank (stuck brushes on starter or fuel pump, respectivily). Short term fix, but at least you know where you stand.

I tapped on the starter and still nothing. Gonna make sure it's getting power, but I'm sure it is as the solenoid is clicking on and off with the start switch. Looks like I'll be getting a starter.

If you've determined it's the starter, I'd pull it out and hook it directly to your car/truck battery with jumper cables. If she doesn't spin, you know for sure that's the prob before you drop money on a starter. (I believe they're grounded through the bolt tab, so you just clamp the negative jumper cable to the starter housing, positive to the one cable coming off the starter).

Oh, and this should be obvious but I'll say it anyways, be prepared for a few sparks when you make the connection and don't leave it connected for more than a few seconds, especially if it doesn't spin!!!!!)

BTW- Tap the back end of the starter were the wires go into the housing, this is where the brushes are. Avoid tapping TOO hard on the side, this is where the premenant magnets are and they will break and lock up the rotor. Done it, payed for it, probably do it again!
