i do not have any extra on dash lights for things going on in my car.
it is a bare naked stick vehicle.

I have a gas gauge, temp gauge, speed and rpm. thats all

Must be the starter. We had the same problem with our mini-van. Fixed the alternator, still had the same problem of not starting. So, duh, it was the starter. $400 later, we now can start the damn car. Runs great.

Good luck, shewolf

Im sure it does in the dash, but nothing has come on so I am inclined to just say no.

An alternator would make a light shine... A starter would not...

@Fido,
Ahhhhh

now THATs nice to know.
No lights went off on my dash.

But, the alternator was only putting out 6 amps. I know that means faulty . I no mechanic. But it does not sound like it was the ultimate issue. I agree.

@shewolfnm,
I think you probably mean, "they got tired of having to talk with me" Smile were you talking forks and haircuts in the same sentence?

@shewolfnm,
The fuses for the lights may have burnt out and need replacing.

So what was the punch line? 'Cuz I used to have a '79 Datsun pickup thought would sometimes refuse to turn over -- solenoid was sticking or something. When that happened, I'd give it a whack or two with a ball peen hammer to shake it loose, start the truck, and drive off. At least until I'd saved up a few ducats to buy a reconditioned starter, which solved the problem entirely...

@patiodog,
I once had an '82 ford crewcab that almost turned over a couple of times.
