: My brother's '86 Audi 4000CS quattro won't start. The power is fine. The starter just makes a loud click, if you touch it with your palm while someone else tries to start the car, you can feel the click. Does this mean the starter's siezed up, or could it just be the solenoid? Anyone know anything about starters? Thanks.

I had two Honda starters fail in the past, both had solenoid failures and they both made a loud click like you describe.
