    equinox is making a ticking noise when running, runs great, no hesitation when giving it gas, no dash lights on. had several mechanics looked at it no one can figure out what the noise is or where its coming from.

Took my suzuki carry to be looked at because it woudnt turn over...(clicking sound from starter)...mechanic tested the alternator and found the alternator was the cause of the fault because the alternator was producing 17 volts instead of 13.4 volts thus frying the starter sure to check the voltage from alternator is not to high, or damage to the the starter motor will just re occur due to to much voltage from the alternator.

Make sure the battery is fully charged, and then if so, you have a starter that has went out.. you will need to replace it...
also, make sure the battery cables are tight and clean

    the batter can cause it, if its not clean, tight and fully charged... it must be all 3 at all times to operate as it is suppose to... keep in mind that new starters go bad too, thats why they come with warranties....

Hello so i ran my 1996 honda accord with no oil an it turned on an i got a few blocks an turned off an wont turn over an just makes a clicking noise

Sadly, I think the motor has seized solid. The click is the starter engaging, but it can't turn the motor. For a '96, I am sorry to say you may be calling the wrecker.

Turn key on, but doesnt even click. battery and starter are fine

This may be due to a bad neutral safety switch, is this car automatic or manual transmission?

If automatic try to start in neutral and if manual try to locate switch on clutch pedal and use a jumper wire to jump connector for switch, NOTE; If switch is jumped car will start in gear with pedal not pushed down and car will take off so this is just as a test not a repair!!!!!, good day

1995 honda accord won't start

Sounds either like the solenoid on the starter is bad or the starter its self.First try turning on your head lights and then trying to start it.If it starts then you have some bad connections either on the battery or the starter. next if that doesnt work Try hitting the starter with a hammer while someone else cranks it.If it starts then the starter is bad..

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

Car will not start, turning key only a tick tick sound 93 accord

The most likely cause of your problem is your alternator and/or battery. You can have them tested at most any auto parts store for free.
One of these two things will fix this type of problem 90% of the time.
