Re: 1997 sts

Why would you replace the starter before checking the battery, or the wiring between the battery (especially battery terminals) and the starter (especially the engine ground)?
The starter in these cars almost NEVER goes bad because of the location (dry, clean and cool).

Re: 97 sts just clicks

Wrong forum. Moved to Seville. Please do not double post the same question on the same vehicle in multiple threads.
