This is a problem common to all vehicles with a solenoid operated starter. That's the little guy mounted on the outside where the heavy batt cable attaches.
As the other answer suggests, you may have low starting current ie flat battery, but I suggest you check the quality of your earth/ground cable from the batt neg post to the chassis and chassis to engine heavy strap if you have one. This is because if the ground is poor, all the juice is trying to get a ground through the wiring harness and this can lead to a massive electrical burn up.
If you use jump leads, connect the ground cable direct to the engine block on a solid part, if it starts right up, check the neg cables as above. Make sure you use serious jump leads 'cos little diddy ones won't pass any current anyway. Check everything carefully before putting hand in wallet.

Clicking from te starter is normally associated with a weak battery. Do you get the clicking sound when you jump start it too? Try that and if you do not hear that clicking sound,.. charge up your existing or get a new battery..It should be note that if your battery is relatively new and drained, you may have a problem with your charging system ... Hope that helps you..

New stater, stater still makes clicking sound


First you should check to make sure the engine is not locked up by turning it over manually. If you can turn the engine manually, then check your battery terminal ends to make sure you have good, clean and tight connections. Typically, a faulty electrical connection is the main culprit that will cause your situation. If you still suspect a faulty connection, try having someone turn the ignition key while you wiggle the battery cables to see if it will try to start. This should help you narrow down the problem area.

Turn key, makes clicking noise but not start.


Double check your battery connections. If the battery is new and the starter makes a series of clicking noises when the key is held in the start position than you are not getting a good power supply to the starter or there is not a sufficient ground.

Car won't start. 1994 Ford Explorer. Clicking noise from engine when ignition is turned. Battery is good. Relays swapped out with a brand new one, but still not starting. Vehicle went from starting fine in...


Check the starter,to see if it is the problem,and clean the cables to the battery,where then connect,and clean the battery post also,clean them to where the cables,and the post shine,so there is no grey,or black on them,this acts as an insulator,and will not let the starter get enough voltage.To check the starter,after cleaning cables and battery post,have someone turn the key to start the engine while you tap on the starter with a hammer lightly,if it starts,then the stater is bad.If this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

Wont start


just one click or a rapid clicking???? a bad connection could cause this, or if its one big click and nothing happens, the starter solenoid may be bad. have someone tap on the stater while you hold the key in the start position. if it then starts, replace the starter. Buy quality parts, NOT from AZ if thats where you get parts.

Problem starting


Make sure your battery is good.Also make sure the clamps or connectors to the battery are snug and working. Try jump starting the battery with another battery or auto and see if that works. If the starter does not turn, it is either the stater itself or the engine is hydrolocked. Most likely the starter is bad.
