Default Isuzu Trooper starter issues

I have an 84 Trooper that will barely turn over when I hit the key. I have charged the battery but still no good. It doesn't do the "clicking " of a dieing starter but just slow to turn over. Runs fine otherwise. Its 2.5 hours away at camp so I have to deal with it on weekends and hate to leave it with someone. Any suggestions of diagnosing without taking to a shop? Thanks, SHB

I would try putting jumper cables on it and see if it still does it. Could be just a weak battery, even though it shows a full charge. Next would be to take the starter off, check the brushes and clean the armature. Might be built up carbon.

First thing is to clean and torque all connections of cables from battery to starter on "+" side and to grounds on the "-" side...

Possible dirty plates in solenoid causing voltage/amp drop and would be remedied by a new solenoid if remote or a new bendix/solenoid if piggybacked on the starter motor. I would just replace starter if more than a couple years old.

I'll try cleaning and jumping then pull starter if nothing changes. Starter is easy to get to so unless I have stuck bolts and such it shouldn't be bad.
Thanks, SHB

I owned an 86 model contact points in the solenoid may be worn and not making a good connection. As I recall I had this problem and replacin the contacts fixed the problem. B&M electric on Palafox should have the kit to fix it.
