spooky starter on 88 Cherokee
Yesterday I climbed into the 1988 Cherokee, turned the key, and all I got was CLICK. Tried some more with the same result. I figured the starter is shot - it's probably original.
Today in anticipation of a trip to autozone for a new starter, I degreased and pressure-washed the old starter and surrounding area (boy is it greasy under there).
About 30 minutes later I turned the key again just to confirm the click-click sound (don't know why I did it) and instead, the car started!
I am now guessing that some wire around the solenoid had worked loose, and my cleaning job pushed it into better contact. So I figure the job now is to detach the battery, and disconnect, clean up, and reconnect the wires around the solenoid.
Does this sound like a fair plan? Am I missing something?
