Actually the chances are that the battery is no longer strong enough to start the car. Try jump starting from another car or try a new battery. What happens is that the battery has so little power that when you go to start the car, it saps everything the battery has causing the solenoid to release. Now the battery has enough power to fire up the solenoid again. round and round it goes. Thats what the clicking sound is.

The clicking sound is the starter solenoid. if the solenoid is defective, the car would not turn.

the contacts of the solenoids are already worn out.

either replace just the solenoid or the whole starter.

1992 mazda protege dx 4 dr won't start. Battery is only 2 months old. Makes a fast ticking sound from inside car similar to turn signal light out.

Hi Robin, As the battery is new and presumably not defective, I think you should suspect the soloniod fitted to the starter motor. If that component has become defective it will give the sound you're reporting. Depending on where you live in the world and the labour charges, you can have the contacter's replaced or the starter motor (if labour charges are high) Regards John

Car won't start just clicks. 2002 Mazda Protege5

The check eng light and the click are separate issue. The click is caused by a burned contact pad in the starter solenoid, the starter solenoid is mounted to the top of the starter motor on the engine. As for the other problem replace the O2 sensor, the heater is defective that preheats it when the engine is first started.

When i try to start my 97 mazda 626 it clicks but won't turn over and other times it starts.. What's the problem?

It sounds like your starter motor is going out. More specifically the solenoid on your starter motor, and since the they are both connected these days unlike the older vehicles you like need to replace the whole starter motor. I hope this helps you out.

The starter sounds like a drill then thats the solinoid on the starter motor and its either not getting full 12v power or the earth wire on engine has come off.
Or the Bendix on the starter has flown to bits
ANSWER thak the starter out and get it checked properly and get your battery check for 12v and 13.5 when it starts ,,as if the battery is down to 10.5 volts it wont turn over and sounds like a drill.
