Car will not start makes fast clicking noise

My car won't start, no noticable problems before hand, today while
out the car first would not turn over then finally got a little power and
never did turn over but makes a fast clicking noise. The lights come
on and the power windows still work, what could be the problem?

The Starter Solenoid is doing the clicking. The starter Solenoid needs replaced.
Just like the windows and the lights, it is getting power, it is just too weak to run the starter.

Why will my car not start?


First have the battery load tested by Autozone or O'reilly auto parts store, while you are there have them do an OBD2 fault code retrieval. It is all free.

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 unplugged my battery and I can hear something ticking fast, when I pull out fuses under the hood (main fuses) noises change..


could be the solenoid on the starter motor clicking, or sometimes there is just enough battery power to put lights on but higher drain items just click on & off trying to cut in, test the battery output voltage should be at least 12v to start, a fully charged battery will be 13.5v, under 12v is no good.

Did you also change the starter solenoid when you changed the starter? That is a possible cause.

Can you turn the engine over by hand from the crankshaft pulley to make sure the engine is not frozen or blocked? You will need a large socket to do that, but if you can't turn the engine over by hand, the starter won't be able to turn the flywheel either. The one click is probably the solenoid firing the starter piston to the flywheel but then nothing makes me think the engine is frozen in some way.

But if the starter and solenoid and battery is trying to turn a frozen flywheel, you should notice some drawdown of light intensity. Do you notice any change?

your battery isnt holding enough charge to crank the starter.thats what the clicking is. try charging you battery for a good 8-10 hours, if it still does the same thing you'll need a new battery.

Squeaking from wheel area


If you replaced the hub assembly did you make sure to lube your wheel and hub bearings? I would also try to lube that entire side of the car as well. Tie Rod ends can make a squeel as well so just make sure to grease anything in that general area. If it is a clunking noise or a squeeling when you turn it may be your axle shaft installed wrong and those little splines on the end can get rubbed off real fast causing heat and noise problems real fast. If all this checks you may want to look into a possible rack and pinion problem or maybe a steering gear. I would lubricate everything first though. Good Luck!
