Hi guys i have an 88 lx that only starts sometimes. When i go to start the car when i turn the igition i hear a "click". I first thought it was a loose battery teriminal but its not. other things i have checked are the starter and solonide and wire from both and ground to the body and all are fine. Anyone have any suggestions what this might be? thanks.

Now this seems like it might work. believe me im ready to tear my hair out with this. So you mean to run my ground wire from my starter directly to the negative terminal?
Yea what you can do to get a good and direct contact is take off the bottom bolt from the starter, the 1 with the easiest access and take a pretty decent size wire maybe 2guage thick wire put a circle connector on the wire and just bolt it between the starter bolt and the starter and run the other side straight to your negative terminal on the battery and make sure everything is nice and tight and try starting your fox multiple times so u know it starts everytime.
