I have a 1993 LWB V8 RR. Went to start it this morning and with plenty of juice in the battery all I got on turning the key was a series of rapid clicks. Starter motor didn't engage...nothing! Connected a battery booster pack and it started! Then for rest of the day startedlike a good 'un. So, whats the problem here? Is it a solenoid thing? Would like to know!

I think the starter dog has got stuck in the ring gear. My own rangie does this sometimes, not sure of the best fix though :? Probably a new starter would be best if it starts happening regularly!
Did you check your cables at both ends to make sure they were clean?
Yeah, check connections in the starter circuit are tight.
Thanks guys! Cleaning ALL the electrical connections is already a "To do" on my growing list of jobs! However, a soggy British winter and no garage means I am getting all behind with these jobs. Thanks again
