Wont star put new battery in


If it ISN'T cranking over ok ... and has a discharged battery..
Disconnect the leads from the rear of the alternator. A faulty alternator can discharge a battery within minutes. Charge the battery and leave the alternator disconnected. Try and start the car.

If - with a charged battery and alternator disconnected - the engine seems very slow to crank or makes a 'clicking' noise ... try cleaning the battery terminals - particularly where the black lead connects to the engine block/bodywork.

Check the leads -and terminals - for breakage/corrosion. A 'bad earth' or corroded/loose battery terminal can cause non-starting problems.

If all is ok and the car spins the engine but won't start, suspect a sensor fault.

Don't waste money on replacing part after part in the hope that the care will fire up. The best - and cheapest - option is to have an OBD - a hand held diagnostic check done. This will identify any error codes and tell you the cause .. i.e 'crankshaft sensor fault'.

My battery light and check engine light on my Chrysler pacifica 2004 came on when I got off work I drove car home it started running rough wouldn't go over 50 I made it home shut off car then tried to...


Sounds like you lost your belt. Or your alternator went bad. The clicking you hear is from the starter due to little power it can't start. The check engine lght might be wired to the battery light so check the belt if it's still there you will probably need a alternator and a battery charge. Also if you lost your belt your car might have overheated also.

Battery is fully charged but car still wont start just starts making a clicking noise why am i getting that.


I suspect the battery isn't holding a charge. Load test the battery. Otherwise it could be the starter.

Car wont turn over and making a humming noise when key is in on position. when i try to start it the car makes a clicking sound.


the alternator isn't charging battery that would account for loss of power and also clicking when try to start , try a jump start if it starts then you know its the battery so with engine running check the alternator charge rate with a voltmeter across the battery terminals anything below 13 volts then check the alternator belt is tight enough , good condition etc , then recheck charge rate if still low fit new alternator

Clicking noise is the sound of the starter being bad and not having enough power to turn the motor over. Replace the starter.

02 Chevy Cavalier - Fast Clicking Noise When I Turn Key


your battery isnt holding enough charge to crank the starter.thats what the clicking is. try charging you battery for a good 8-10 hours, if it still does the same thing you'll need a new battery.

IF ITS MAKING A CLICKING NOISE WONT TURN OVER.CHECK BATTERY CABLE FOR TIGHTNESS AND NO CORROSSION. THE BATTERY VOLTAGE. SHOULD BE 12.5 VOLTS.IF NOT HAVE IT CHARGED AND TESTED.IF ITS GOOD HAVE ALTERNATOR CHECKED OUT.IF BOTH IS GOOD HAVE THE STARTER REMOVED TO HAVE IT AND THE STARTER SOLENOID TESTED.NOTE DUE TO LOCK OUT FEATURE.TURN OFF RADIO SO YOU WONT LOSE CODE WHEN YOU DISCONNECT NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE.
