Question about 1999 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

1999 Blazer is not starting, very loud clicking noise

I tried to start my car this morning and all I got was a loud clicking noise, my lights still turn on, I am wondering if this would be my starter? I have been having problems lately, is used to sound as if it was not getting gas, and would take a little while to start but now it won't start at all.

Thanks for your help

You need a new and /or known to be fully charged battery to start with also make sure your alternator is charging very well (not just barely poking along ) also make sure that the auto light sensor is not coverd with dust or anyhting else ( keep crud and **** away from the dash area above the audio center this can cause the system to turn on even with the key off.

Cannot start loud fast clicking noise


Clicking noise would indicate starter solenoid faulty! This would also be the case if battery low but since you have a new battery you can look at the starter solenoid!

I bought a brand new starter and new battery in the last 7 days. When I try to start my car, the engine does not engage, instead, all I get is a loud rapid clicking noise. Does anyone know what it mig


I guess I will start by saying we can only guess because we are not there in person.
My first question would be, where is the noise coming from ?
If it is the starter, you could have missing teeth on the flywheel and nothing for the starter to engage.
Depending on the make model and year, if you have a starter relay other than the one on the starter it could be faulty.
As long as you have 12 volts and a couple hundred amps of power at the starter post, and a good ground, the starter should turn. If the neutral safety switch was faulty you would get nothing when you turn the key. And the alternator would not come into play until after the engine starts.
Can you turn the engine by hand ?
Can you jump the starter with a screwdriver or jumper wire and make it turn ?

My 2004 pontiac grand prix gt wont start when i went to turn it on this morning to go to work nothing happened it just made a clicking noice. The guy at pep boys said that the battery was good. when i try...


if you turn headlights on and turn key to start do you hear clicking? if so starter is possibly bad,lets trouble shoot your problem.suggest you check the fuses under hood in black box,make sure those are good. when you turn the key, you should hear at least a click or else the starter is not drawing current.try turning the headlights on and at same time turn the key and try to start, if lights go dim the starter is drawing current, does it click? if so then bad starter. if no noise at all,,still could be a bad starter.suggest that you remove the starter and have it checked out.also make sure the car is in park for sure before you do any of this. hope this helps!!

Sounds like the starter need to be replace or rebuilt.
The clicking is due to the starter still partially engaged. Grooves are worn on the contactors and the plunger is sticking in the starter.

It is your battery it may not be completly dead but it is too dead to run the starter. It take 300 -600 amp to run a starter and 20 amp to run a stereo

Toyota lucida won't start


What you have is a VERY common problem. Your starter solenoid contacts are worn out. To rectify this, you have 2 options: Remove the starter and replace the burnt contacts (the are located under a metal plate that has 3 small bolts holding it to the starter; replace the plunger and the 2 copper coloured contacts) OR reeplace the starter. The clicking noise that you hear is the plunger hitting one contact, but the current from the battery is not passing thru the plunger to the other contact that leads into the windings of the starter. No contact = no crank.
