If the solenoid makes a clicking sound it isn't the ignition switch. Depends on the clicking sound, one click or rattling. Try turning on lights and trying to start, if lights go out when attempting to start, voltage problem(usually battery or bad connections).

Is the earth cable giving a good engine and body contact.does your starter have two terminals and if so are they the right way around?is the battery any good?Is the engine able to be turned over by hand Make sure you have agood 12v supply to the starter solenoid when cranking the engine An engine test probe/light would be of a lot of use for you to do that test

1994 ford escort won't turnover, the fuel shutoff light comes on when you press the clutch. can push start and will run


soundsa like the starter or the fender mounted solioid is malfunctioning. Does anytrhing clich as you turn the key to start? If theirs no click at all you might look and the starter relay ( solioid) it's located near the battery and it has the positive battery cable connected to it. Also notice the most common no start is the battery cables aren't making good connection to the battery or the battry is too low as it may be low on charge. Have the battry tested or if handy to do see if it starts normally with jumper cables connected to a running car. If it starts just fine the battery or the charging system needs to be looked into. it it tris to start and crnks slowly and makes bad noises the starter is likly bad. If it had been starting just fine and this happened all the sudden the cables connected to the battery or the battery failing are the most likly.

Car wont start, been having battery issues usually jump start works not this time. makes a clicking and rattling noise but wont kick over. May be unrelated but it has been shaking when speed over 55 was...


BATTERY COULD BE WEAK.CHECK BATTERY VOLTAGE SHOULD BE 12.6 VOLTS. REPLACE BATTERY CABLES 14 YEARS OLD. IF BATTERY CABLES OKAY.REMOVE STARTER HAVE STARTER AND SOLENOID TESTED AT ANY AUTO PARTS STORE FREE.BE SURE TO TURN OFF RADIO BEFORE REMOVING NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE.DOING THIS KEEP YOU FROM LOSING RADIO CODE.

Van won't start. Only have clicking noise. Have a new battery and had the starter checked.


I know you had the starter tested but i still thing you have one of two things going on here, first acid damage to the Positive battery cable at the battery, if this is present you will notice the outside of the cable seems swelled yo under the red insulator, this causes low voltage, enough to click the starter solenoid but not enough to turn the starter motor. The other problem is burnt contact inside the starter solenoid itself, this problem will cause a clicking noise from the solenoid with no starter engagement, it very common. The starter solenoid is near the battery just follow the Positive cable from the battery to it, carefully jumper across it, does the starter engage? Here is a picture of the starter solenoid.
