Not starting, no click, tap starter and it starts.[SOLVED]
So my cousin's car (stock KA24DE) has been having some starting issues ever since he got it. (ALT fuse and battery have been replaced, so it has been pretty good for a while)
however, just recently, when you turn the key to START, there is no click at all, nothing happens.
Then we tried tapping the starter while the key was on "start" and voila, it started.
Retried starting a couple times, and it started perfectly. Then the next day it wouldn't start (again, no click), but after a roll start, it's starting fine again.
What could be the culprit here?
Possibly starter, or starter relay?
(car does not require clutch to be depressed to start it)
thanks for the help.
Starter has since been replaced. Car is starting fine now.
Thanks for the help everyone.
