Where is the starter located on the 02 1800. My starter just clicks and dim the lights. Battery is good

It is under the fuel tank. Methinks you will need a manual to get at it. Gotta take of the top shelter, and the left saddlebag tupperware.
It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey

Are you shure the battery is full charge.You should check your connection on the battery, make shure there tight, it sounds like it could be a bad ground. I would check the starter relay and starter switch and clean.

I glenr996

First thing you didn't need to remove the left saddlebag. I checked in my Clymer.

Make sure like say Flash2002 your battery if it has more than 12 volts, and you try to boost your battery with your car.
