If it is a series of clicks, it most likely is a weak battery. Try jumping or charging.

If it is one click, it most likely is the starter. Before changing the starter, try to firmly tap it with a wooden handle. If you have a manual trans, you can put the car in gear and try to rock the car in case the starter engagement is stuck in the out position against the flywheel teeth ring.

My 1999 Lexus ES300 wouldn't start this morning. There's no sound when trying to turn over...no clicking are anything. When I listen under the hood there's a slight click in the alternator


Hi Susie, Turn on the head lights and get someone to observe them while trying to start. If they dim during trying to start, replace the battery. Regards John

Car clicks when trying to start but won't start


Does it only click when you try to jump start it? I suggest checking the starter solenoid.

Car won't start. New battery installed recently. Only clicks when trying to start.


one single click any time you turn the key usually indicates a bad solenoid on the starter. A new starter will typical get you going.

A series of rapid clicks when you try to start usually indicates a weak battery. There could also be a bad connection at the terminals on the battery or even a poor connection at the starter.

If you get a single click and everything goes dead for a couple of seconds than you definitely have a bad connection at the battery.

Let me know what you find or if you have any questions.

Tried to start it and it clicks clicks clicks. Replaced the battery and still won't start. Replaced a relay switch and still wont start but the clicking has stopped.


Try starting it with the headlights on. When you hear the clicking do the headlights go out? If so, you probably have corroded battery contacts. Clean the battery posts and the cable connectors with a wire brush. If the headlights stay bright the problem is in the wiring to the starter. Take apart and clean all the contacts points to the starter. If that does not solve the problem, get the starter tested.

Clicking noise when trying to start car,battery is ok, wont start


That Clicking is the Battery causing it not to Start. You need to Replace that Battery or at Least put a Charger on it for a Couple of hours to see if you can Salvage it for a While.
