My Car wont start! Not ticking over at all - 2000 Volkswagen Golf

Posted by on

  • BardoM Oct 29, 2008

    My 2001 Golf won't start. The dash lights rapidly flash on and off while making a tic tic tic tic sound. There is no attempt for the engine to turn over. My battery is OK since I can still roll up the power windows and such when I turn my key half way. I just replaced my alternator last summer. What could be the problem? My car has had multiple problems in the past with ignition coils and the computer system. I'm really getting frustrated with it and am completely out of money to fix it. If anyone knows what might be the problem it would be appreciated. Thanks.

Assuming the battery is O..K,
Have the batter checked out
The window working is not a sufficient test since starter takes a far more juice from battery than windows.
From what you describe it looks like either there is no power getting to the starter or starter motor is faulty
clicking noise is the solonoid that should be be transfering power to the starter motor and that might not be happening.

Car wont start


sounds like the timing belt has gone would not keep trying to start engine if this is the case and it will cost you more to fix. it may have striped a cog on the belt or the adjuster has given up the goat. clicking and clunk is a most common sound of the belt going. if you have to have the belt changed and the engine runs and is ticking then the valves are bent and you will need to have the head changed or the valves replaced, as over time the valve can snap and then the engine is a gonner.

Check your battery terminals , are they clean and tight ? Next try to jump start your car. It may be that you have a bad battery.

Car makes a ticking noise & wont start when i try to start it, what might it be?


Possible that the sound can be that the fuel pump is starting up to pump but cannot be observed as a fault. So unless you check for the fuel pressure and the ignition spark the engine's failure to start cannot be confirmed.Also you need to make sure there is no problem with the fuel, fuel filter.Check for error codes that might help to confirm. Finally the battery must be good and should be cranking well with enough voltage for the ignition circuit.

Car wont start 2002 pontiac grand prix


You must have a nearly dead battery, have it jumped then go to a Kragen and have them test the battery and the charging system for a fault. This is FREE!
