Starter

2005 300 c 5.7 Rear wheel drive.
Car has sat for 8 months replaced batter car wonít start just one click not turning over. I put car in Neutral put socket on engine pulley and move pistons a bit so I know engine engine isnít seized.

So I am thinking dead starter. Here is my question everything I search in google comes up very minimal information on the starter repair I have read itís on drivers side underneath between trans and engine. I dot see it. But on passenger side I do see this which I believe is the starter. Can anyone confirm it could be on passenger side and is this pic the starter. I know it sounds dumb it just has me really baffled

Yes, that is the starter.

It could be a sticky solenoid after sitting for that length of time.
I would try tapping the starter solenoid with a soft hammer while someone engages the key to start position.

Of course a load tested battery is critical.

Thanks I took it out of the car no problem I will bench test it see how it is. I have brand new battery in the car and tested. So will see what it does on the bench.

Works perfectly so I have no idea what the deal is. Friend suggested the starter may just be to weak good on a bench but not enough to crank engine. I just donít know if itís security issue with key fob or what at this point. Iím going to clean up the connections put it back in car And run a lead from solenoid to 12 volt see if she goes

Check fuses 10 (5A) and 20 (20A), and the Starter relay in the Integrated Power Module (aka the engine compartment fuse box). Simply removing them for inspection and reinserting each should cleanup any corrosion or loose fitting issues that may be causing them not to function properly.
