Hello my good people,

I'm a big do it yourself-er but it's hard to do so without knowing the location of certain items. I've been looking to see where is my starter located at on my Magnum, i can't see it from the front so i'm guessing it's either under or behind the engine, I was trying to get some outside help before i try to lift the car.

Background: The car died on my wife while she was driving, the battery reads good, the car clicks no turn. All lights come on so I'm guessing it's a bad solenoid or starter.

I took the battery out and I hooked up the jumpers the car and it had a steady click so my engine wont turn it just clicks so i'm hoping the issue lies there.

If you have any other inputs please enlighten me, it's been a while since i've changed out a starter on a vehicle just hard to trace the negative terminal since the batter is in the back of the vehicle.

Replacing the starter on a Magnum is a complete PITA. I'd never do it again. It's located just behind the steering column underneath the car. Have you alternator tested first. It may not even be the starter.
