It sounds to me as if it is a dud battery, you should get it checked before you do aything else, this would certainly cause the symptoms you mention.

Car clicks but wont start


the alternator lamp will not go out until the engine runs..
the alt converts engine horse power to electric power,
no engine, no alt.
so that means the engine will not start, or better it wont crank
subzero C or Subzero F.,, -10F or -10C, vastly different temps.
???????
no crank, then jumper cable crank it with donor car running.
crank now,?
yes , then battery is bad,weak or just discharged.
no, then starter bad, or key line bad.
hot wire starter solenoid. cranks now, is bad key line
if not, bad starter.

did you wiggle the shifter at crank.
did you wiggle key. extra.
did you try crankiing in neutral using fresh start contacts.>... yah.

Won't start just clicks I have a new battery and attenltor


The just clicks is aways a bad connection causing low voltage at the starter, But the starter can be bad or ( hung in) Turn the engine by hand to se that it will turn if you hear a loud click when you turn the engine the starter ws hung, The starter being loose or worn out will let the gear climb up on a tooth of the flywheel. once cleared it may start right up. if there's alot of gear noise then the starter and or the ring gear (flex plate) may be damaged and need to be replaced. Low voltage is most ofte the cause, The old batery being bad or the new one being low, ( not charged) is most often the cause. After turning the engine, With jumper cables connected to another running car try again, Try hooking the ground cable of the jumper cables right to the engine block or case of the starter. if ti starts this way and not after you unhook the cables you have a cable connection from the battery to the block or the positive cable where it hooks to the starter bad

Makes clicking sound but will not start even with jumper cables


Could be your starter, but a clicking noise is usually a bad connection. Try cleaning cables at battery and starter. You can also have your battery tested at any parts store, just to make sure.

97 neon wont start i just hear a clicking noise in the relay area


1st check the connections at the battery for corrosion, clean and make sure you have a tight connection. Bring the battery to a parts store, they will check it's condition for free. It may be bad, and all you need to do is replace it. If they find it's not charged fully, bad connections at cables or alternator may be to blame.

It makes a clicking noise when I try to start my Jeep


Hi Tanner,

That clicking sound is what your starter solenoid sounds like when powered by a weak battery.

It should start with a jump.

The real questions are: How did it get weak? Will it recover?

Instead of performing a bunch of tests, why don't we take the path of least resistance. Get someone else to do them.

After you get it running, go to an auto parts store. They love to perform free tests in the hope that you will buy something. If it less than 15 minutes away, drive around a bit to let it recharge.

Ask if they can run a 'Load Test' on your battery. A load test is a voltage test with a twist. It simulates the load put on your battery by a starter turning over an engine.

There are an unambiguous Pass or Fail.

Pass means the battery is good.
Fail means your battery can't hold a charge and needs to be replaced.

What luck!! You're at an auto parts store. ;)

Best regards,
Mike
