Exclamation Help!!

Is anyone in the Greenville area able to take a look at my truck. the truck was driven to the audio shop last night and this morning they are unable to start it. They say they tried to jump it but the starter is just clicking.

did they try to 'ole bang-on-the-starter trick? when i replaced one in my 5.4 it came with a new pigtail connection.. i guess the factory ones corrode pretty bad. might check that too.

Ok they got underneath and the starter is receiving full voltage. They tried jumping the starter and still does the same thing, Just clicks wont roll the engine over at all. Anyone have any suggestions or diagnosis.

did you get a starter yet. Mike works right by you and might be able to get one at his cost. He works for an MG repair place right by the airport.

Ok so I went to the shop last night to see the issue for myself. When i got there i hopped in and sure enough just a single click no roll over nothing. Popped the hood hooked up the jumper cables to the impala and first try starts right up. No clue as to what they were doing.
