I have a 99 Durango that won't start and it also makes a clicking noise jnstead of the bell. it has a new starter, battery and computer. could it be my positive battery cable. it also will not st


Hi Chris, I'm glad to help!

Chris it sounds like you are getting power to the starter when you say it clicks. Here's what you need to do! Take a breaker bar and socket put it on the crankshaft bolt and try to turn the engine over by hand. If you can not move it then take the serpentine belt off and try to turn it over by hand. If you can move it that means something is locked up. Try turning each pulley by hand until you find what is locked up and replace that part. NOTE: If after removing the serpentine belt you still can not move it then your engine is locked up and will need to be replaced or repaired if possible. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Chris.

My 98 dodge durango 5.9L for a while would only start on the second try but would still crank over and start. not it wont even try to crank and the battery is fully charged then u hear clicking from the...


Have you ruled out that the starter has gone bad? With use and age, the armature can sieze in the motor, essentially making the motor useless even though there is voltage applied to it..

Write me back if you require further advice..

I have a 2000 Kia Sephia. that will start and then die. New starter, alternator and battery. Any thoughts?


well if it is cranking its not starter or battery . maybe check to see if fuel pump is working .check fuses. you should be able to hear pump run for a few second . if pump working maybe fuel filter or sensor like throttle position ,air idle sensor. make sure all wires are hooked up on alternator & starter . no vacuum hoses off any where . is check engine light on ?

How do i know if the starter is going out


Most of the time, if the starter is about to give out, you will notice a clicking sound.....make sure that you turn the headlights on to observe if they dim significantly, as this can also be a sign of battery losing charge........if it is slow to start, then this would be a battery fault...........

But, if you hear a click, and the headlights stay bright, then you will definetly require starter motor replacement....if you hear a grinding sound as you start then this could indicate that the gear teeth on your flywheel, or starter gear is also wearing down, replacement required for this as well.......

Dodge durango will not start at all , bought new battery ,looked at all fuses alternator is working.all i can hear is a clicking noise coming from the glove compartment


Replace the starter,it is a low geared starter ,witch has contacts,instead of brushes,if I am correct you can sometimes tap the starter while trying to start,and the starter will turn the engine over,use a hammer,do not slam the starter,it will break the magnets in the stater.

2000 olds intrigue will not crank


you have 3 choices.
1) Bad battery
2)Starter motor solenoid is inoperative or starter motor itself is inoperative
3) your engine is locked up
How old is your battery and are the connections to the starter motor good?
Do you hear a clicking noise when you try to start the engine?
Do you have a clunk noise when you try to start it?

If dirty connections then clean the terminals andtry to start engine.
Clicking noise means starter solenoid is picking up but starter motor is disunctional and needs replacement.
If the noise is a clunk then your engine is locked up for whatever reason.
Last but not least if you hear the starter motor runningand a metalic grinding then the star is bad on the starter motor which means replacement of same.
