i havent driven my fleet in 9 days, so i jump it off all the lights come on but it wont turn over, so should i just let it charge more or just change the starter, and how can i tell if the starter is bad anyway and how do i locate it to change it anyway,

If you hear the starter clicking, your battery is too weak yet. To determine if the starter is bad you can take it to Auto Zone or other parts stores, and they can test the starter and the starter solenoid to see if either is the problem.

STarter is located on passenger side of engine, right where oil pan meets the block. It is under the exhaust manifold.
