junction box click's

not been on for a while, busy ,busy , busy.........problem as follows,
all I get when trying to start is a click from junction box (not starter relay)
replaced sarter relay and starter motor recently ( both no good)...battery needs replacing as it shows voltage but pushing no amps, could it be a possible blown capacitor in JB?????
cheers Chris

There is a starter relay in the JB too. I think that is what is clicking.
You have enough voltage to operate the primary circuit switch, but not the current to spin the starter motor IMHO.

Try boosting the battery and see if that cures the problem.
I think you just need a new battery.

If it starts with a screw driver then you have a bad starter relay, or a bad starter button... try grounding out the b/y wire on the starter solenoid.. if this works then its your start switch. If this doesn't work, then its the solenoid... also check to make sure you are getting power to the solenoid on the little white/red wire. If battery voltage isn't present, then you need a new JB.
