I have a 2010 Charger SXT and for the past few weeks sometimes when i start it doesn't turn over i just get a click sound when i turn the key. Finally it gave out on me all together. How do i know if its the starter or starter relay? Wanted to know before i went and bought a new starter...

Check the battery first, then if you hear a click from under the hood when you turn the key your relay is fine. Grab a friend and check voltage going to the starter when you turn that key and hear the click (pos lead on pos terminal on solenoid, neg lead on chassis ground) If it flashes up to battery voltage or stays at battery voltage then your starter is shorted to the housing internally.

Or if you hear a click and then have heavy draw from the battery (lights go dim, and dies) then it's either a wire shorting to ground or your starter.
