I bought 2006 Commander w/4.7L, QD-II about month ago. This morning I tried to start it and I couldn't. It's not cranking. I could only hear semi-loud click coming from the left side under the dash or left side under the hood where fuse boxes are located. I had to go to work so I didn't have time to locate exact location of the click. It clicks every time I turn the key in the ignition.
Any ideas what's wrong? Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you for all replies. I'm off tomorrow so I'll check what's going on.

If it is a starter do you know any good company making reliable starters? I found starter on Amazon for $72 but I'm assuming it's POS. I'd rather spend more $200-300 for good quality one to be sure I'm not gonna have the same problem in 10 or 20K miles again. I was looking for Mean-Green starter but couldn't find it. What other company would you guys recommend?
@NJXJXK ; There is one thing I'd check, before you do anything else.

There is a Yellow wire that attaches to the starter that is notorious for corrosion, at the connection point.

This is a very well-documented issue, which causes various different starting problems.

I'd highly recommend that you check that yellow wire and make sure that the connection point, on the starter, is completely clean & corrosion free.

If you do have to clean that connection, obviously, disconnect the battery before doing so.
