    Probably, but a duff solenoid will do the same. If it's a duff battery you can expect the solenoid to connect when you hear it click as they don't draw much and then as it tries to draw a load to turn over the lights should dim. If the lights don't dim the solenoid on the starter isn't connecting the high current circuit.

    Think it is the starter. Tried to jump start it but still got the clicking sound. How big a job to get the starter out.
