Default Discovery no start

Ok anyone have any clue as to what my problem may be? I have a no start not crank issue. All I hear is a relay click in the car and that's it... Would the neutral safety switch cause this? And is there a way to by pass it.

Thanks

No. Have you done anything to your truck recently? Battery voltage? Fuses?

Bang on starter with hammer. If it starts working, the solenoid is bad.

And if it doesn't start the solenoid could be bad.
Best thing to do is pull it and bench test it. Be careful when you pull it though. Clean out the socket cap screws VERY well. When you get them out replace them with regular hex cap screws. And I wouldn't bother replacing the heat shield.

Before you pull the starter, check for fuses, wires not tight, etc. You can jump the starter from the big positive wire with aq bolt to the stude where the small wire is lugged on in attached picture and it should turn over if battery connection and starter are good. Be sure truck is in park...
