Re: my suzuki swift some times wont start..
If you are dealing with one solid click each time you attempt to start, then most likely starter isssue. if there are multiple clicks (like a machine gun), then there is a low voltage situation. maybe battery or connection

which engine? of the many and want country. ?
some are even diesel.
there are 3 phases to this.
and runs. and may stall soon after. or not.
at what point does this process fail.
if it dont crank we diagnose th starter system.
it fails to start (we check spark , then fuel) if both ok we check for lost compression (cam timing belt slipped>?)
if it stalls, lots more test.. over 50 causes.
this is what a tech does, diagnose. saving lots of time guessing and buying un-needed parts.
tell more, get more. but what engine.'
When key is turned the starter is energized by a solenoid that applies power directly from the battery to the starter. Any loose connection will prevent the starter from turning over. The solenoid can also have burnt spots on the contacts inside case that will prevent current from getting to the starter. A click noise is the solenoid energizing so
if all connections are tight and the battery is good the only
other problem is the starter may be bad. Brushes on the
starter may have seen their life ended. this is usually identified by tapping on starter with a hammer while trying to start engine. If starter spins, replacement is needed.
SOUND LIKE VECHICLE IN THEFT SECURITY MODE CAUSED BY WORN KEY OR IMMOBILIZER READ COIL.PROBLEM IN THE BCM AND ECM.TRY INSTALLING KEY IGNITION SWITCH.TURN SWITCH TO THE ON POSITION FOR 10 MINUTES UNTIL THE YELLOW LOCK LIGHT TURN OFF OR DISAPPEAR.THEN TURN OFF IGNITION SWITCH FOR 5 SECONDS, THEN TRY START VECHICLE.IF VECHICLE STILL DONT CRANK.HAVE VECHICLE CODE SCAN FOR THEFT SECURITY FAULT CODES.
Check your connections on the battery and especially the ground connection on the engine...the problem you describe sounds like a bad connection....you may need to remove the battery cables and clean the posts and the battery cable connectors...also, there is a ground going to the engine block...follow the ground cable(black) down to where it is connected to the engine, remove the bolt holding the cable on and clean the area where the ground goes on with sandpaper to ensure a good connection...you may want to do this with the positive connector as well...it will have a crimp connector on it also, and you will need to clean it the same way as the ground connector...when working with the battery cables, make sure you have one disconnected from the battery to make sure you don't short them out
