I have a 2002 Chevy Avalanche and today after driving for a good 40 minutes I turn it off. Not 5 mins later I go to turn it on and it won't turn over and is making a clicking sound. I thought it was the battery so I had my friend get some jim jumper cables and it still didnt turn over. My neighbor thinks its the starter. Need help. I was also told to bit starter with a wrench or hammer while turning the ignition???? Help me please!!!

if you go to start the engine and you get a very fast and repeating clicking sound it means that the battery is unable to hold the starter solenoid down (low battery)

If you turn the engine to start and you just get one click each time you put the key to the start position it's a sign of a bad starter. (usually the solenoid has burned the contacts and the solenoid is not allowing the current to the starter)

sometimes if you tap on the starter while the key is held in the start position, it will jar the contacts and the starter will crank the engine over. Once it's running don't turn it off until you are at the place where you are going to replace the starter. because you don't know if it's going to start again
