Below are 2 pictures for you. Both are pretty much in the same spot it just depends on if you have a 3 or 4 speed transmission. Now I'm not sure of the "clicking" sound that you are talking about but I just want to mention that you do have a starter relay. You may be hearing that "Click" but your starter could be bad. Even your starter could be making the "clicking" noise. I say this because it sounds like failure in that area and not the neutral safety switch. If that were bad you would hear nothing as if you were trying to start it when it was in gear...you hear nothing. A quick test you can is to have someone turn the key to try and start the engine. While they are doing that put your finger on the starter relay (see picture below of location). if you feel it engauge or "click" that means you're getting power to the starting system and it's not your neutral safety switch. You could go one step farther and if the relay is clicking go down to the starter. Again while someone turns the key to start using a test light check to see if you are geting power to one of the smaller wires (not sure of the color but it will be on the solenoid) and if you are geting power while the key is turned and trying to start buy no power when they let off the key then you most likely have a bad starter. Or a wiring problem. I just wanted to mention this so you are just not changing parts for nothing. Hope this helps...
Sounds like a classic case of a dead battery. It takes much less energy to sweep the gauges and turn on the lights than it does to crank the engine over. The clicking noise is usually your starter solenoid trying to engage and spin the starter. Try a new battery. Happy motoring.
if the battery is fine check if you hear a clicking noise coming from the starter motor when you turn the key to try and start the engine.
If you hear this noise then this is a good indication that the selenoid has failed meaning you need to replace the starter motor.
You can give the starter motor a hit with a piece of wood as some times this will get the starter motor working just to start the car but this isnt a permanent fix and could leave you stuck if you used the car.
Now if the starter motor isnt clicking but you hear a clicking noise coming from either the cars fuse box or the ecu when you turn the key to start the car then this would indicate a problem with the imobiliser this would need testing using a diagnostic machine as their is no other way of testing this to find out if its at fault.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
hi, can you hear a clicking noise when you turn the key to start as the starter gets its power direct from the battery so also check these wires are connected and not came loose. If you can hear a clicking noise when you turn the key this means the starter motor needs replacing ok. Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
hi, when it dont turn over do you hear a clicking noise or is the engine turning over and just not starting. If its the first and when you turn the key the starter motor dont turn the engine over allowing it to start you will usually hear a clicking noise and this is the selanoid inside the starter motor failing to make a connection. If this is the case then all you need to do is get the starter motor replaced if you have any further comments or need further assistance then let me know ok
This is caused by the contacts being burned in the starter solenoid, just the solenoid contacts can be replaced, you have to pull the starter to do this, the new contacts are available from Ohiomotor.com
