Loud speaker static from 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse when the car is off. It drained that battery. I tried pulling the radio fuse but it was still making the noise. I had to disconnect the battery to g


The fuse might be built into the cable to the lighterand/or radio. It's called "fusable link", this type of fuse looks like a cable. Or another type of fusable link might be in the fuse box under the hood near the firewall.

2006 ford explorer wont start and lights wont work on outside or inside. I hear a clicking sound on the inside under dash. The battery is fine checked it what else could it be?


Since your battery is fine and you hear a clicking sound there is a problem getting the power to the rest of the systems on the vehicle. That clicking noise is your starter that doesn't have enough juice to get it going. This may be something as simple as dirty or rusty terminals, a bad connection between the terminals and the cable or even bad battery cables. The ifrst thing you should do is take off your battery terminals and clean them clean them and also while you're at it take a look at those cables to make sure they aren't obviously damaged. Reconnect the terminals to the cables and battey and see what happens. If it doesn't work, you'll need to have a professional look at it.

SOUND LIKE BAD STARTER SOLENOID.IF YOU HEAR LIKE CLICKING NOISE.CHECK BATTERY CABLE FOR TIGHTNESS AND CLEAN FREE FROM CORROSSION.CHECK BATTERY VOLTAGE SHOULD BE 12.5 VOLTS.IF NOT BATTERY HAS WEAK CELL IN IT.IF YOU HAVE TO REPLACE BATTERY.TURN OFF RADIO BEFORE DISCONNECTING NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE SO YOU WONT LOCK OUT RADIO CODE.

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!!

I cant start my 2006 charger, even though the lights, radio come on


Do you hear a clicking sound but nothing else?
If so, it sounds like your battery is dying, enough juice to power your small things...eg radio, lights but not enough juice to turn your engine over

Hope this helps

Occassionally wont start in the morning when cold. Will crank over, has done this twice in the last two weeks, it sounds like the fuel pump is kicking on. when it does start (hours later) it runs fine


My guess is that you need to buy a new battery. Hear that clicking sound? That's your solenoid telling you it's not getting the juice it needs to turn over the engine. The dash and dome lights might work but there's not enough amps to start. It's only going to get worse. It's very easy to install a new battery yourself. Make sure the terminal and cables are in good shape. You shold also clean the battery area with a mixture of baking soda and water to neturalize the acid.

Car wont start, makes a clicking sound under the hood


try replacing the starter it may be bad, its not your clutch sensor if it was it would do nothing at all. try turning your motor over by hand the starter gear maybe stuck to the flex plate or push start the truck, shut it off and then try to start it if i does nothing but click replace the starter then
