The clicking noise is solonid which should be energising the starter and it isn't.

Dodge charger wont start hear two clicking noise from the engine won't start


Check that your battery is charged and in good condition. This may require a load test at your local auto parts store. What you are hearing could be the starter solenoid clicking, but there isn't enough power to turn the motor.

I have a 2006 vw jetta w turbo it wont start. just clicks.got lights just will not start. it is a 6 speed manual


Do your lights dim considerably when trying to turn over? If so, then your battery may be flat.
If your headlights don't dim considerably when energising the starter motor, then it is likely the starter motor which has failed.

I need instructions on how to put a new starter 97 jetta GLX


You may want to check some things out before actually replacing the starter.

Check the fuse in the fuse box and the relay.

There are two parts to the starter. One is the actual starter motor and the other in the starter solenoid. The solenoid moves the starter motor into place and engages it into the engine.

When you turn the key you should hear the solenoid click as it moves the starter. If you hear the click and the sound of the stater motor spinning it is just the solenoid. It can be replaced without replacing the starter motor.

If you hear the click and no sound of the starter motor trying to turn. It is the starter motor.

It check for power at the motor. Use a test light or voltage meter to see it is getting power when the key is turned.

If you are getting power you have a problem with the starter motor as you suspect already. The above may save you money.

To change the motor it is fairly simple to do. You remove the four bolts holding the motor in place, remove the electrical connections. Slide the motor out. Installation is the reverse of removal.

I am assuming you know where the starter is. On a diesel it is on the back of the engine. On a gas engine it is on the front side.

If you really want to get into it you can replace the brushes on the starter motor. Once out you open the starter and install new brushes it they appear warn and are not making contact.

If you need details I would go to the library and ask for the Bentley service manual. They will have one or can get one from another branch.

Hope this helps.

Either the starter is bad or you're experiencing your battery's death.

Clicking noise under the dash of a 2008 vw jetta wolfsburg addition


This problem is very common with MkV VW's. It's related to the heat and evaporator components. It's some sort of flap motor.

My car wont start battery is not dead,but wont turn over?


if the battery is fine check if you hear a clicking noise coming from the starter motor when you turn the key to try and start the engine.
If you hear this noise then this is a good indication that the selenoid has failed meaning you need to replace the starter motor.

You can give the starter motor a hit with a piece of wood as some times this will get the starter motor working just to start the car but this isnt a permanent fix and could leave you stuck if you used the car.

Now if the starter motor isnt clicking but you hear a clicking noise coming from either the cars fuse box or the ecu when you turn the key to start the car then this would indicate a problem with the imobiliser this would need testing using a diagnostic machine as their is no other way of testing this to find out if its at fault.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Won't start...99 cadillac deville...no juice to the starter


hi, can you hear a clicking noise when you turn the key to start as the starter gets its power direct from the battery so also check these wires are connected and not came loose.
If you can hear a clicking noise when you turn the key this means the starter motor needs replacing ok.

New battery & still won't start. Won't even make a noise. DEAD!


sounds like you have a problem with either the ignition switch itself or the solenoid on the starter if you jump positive power to the small wire on your starter and it turns the starter then it would be your ignition switch if it does not turn it replace your starter
