    Do your headlights dim when trying to start?

    If your dash lights are all good, your headlights don't dim, and you hear a "click" but starter doesn't turn engine over, people say its probably either bad earth (commonly cited but never seen that myself) or possibly a sticky starter solenoid (seen that lots on different cars).

    I reckon jiberson was asking whether the headlights dim as it relates to condition of your battery. Battery problems do tend to start showing up as the weather gets colder.

    are you asking if someone on the forum has a starter for sale?

    p.s. If my starter solenoid appeared to be sticking, before buying a new starter, I would first try removing the starter, cleaning the dust and deris from the inside, check the brushes, detach the solenoid, clean the accumulated dust and debris from the spring and shaft, lightly lubricate the shaft, resintall. That has worked for me on a variety of vehicles.
