Recently, my 95 Vandura has had a starter issue, first happened 2 months ago or so, but it happened again last night so now I’m concerned. When I turn the key to crank it, the starter let’s out a single click, and I have to recycle the key to make the starter actually crank. Sometimes it takes one recycle, sometimes more. I’m guessing it’s the solenoid on the starter. Brand new battery and alternator, never cranks slowly. Any one know what it could be?

Neutral safety? Mines does similar. Stick it in N, foot on the brake and try it. See if it’s any different. I generally have to wiggle the gear lever a bit to get mine to crank. Some days sounds like there’s no juice in it but it does go.

Thanks for the tip. Had a similar issue with mine, not sure if it still happens as I havent driven it for 5 years. I think I had the brushes changed in the starter motor or it was bad contacts on the leads starter- battery.
