There is a clicking noise under dash and also under the hood by the headlights. there is no power to anything (no lights or radio). i tried jumping it and that doesn't work the battery is only 5 months old. what do u think it could be and where would i locate it?
Here is how solve this problem:
I hold the key on starting position, i Stop pressing on the pedale clutch and press again. May be two or three times. If it's still not working i lift up and down the battery without deconnecting the wires. If my door is open i could hear some sound inside. So i know the current is now available. Just try and let me know if it's working.

Where's the clicking noise coming from ? Under the dash , under the hood in the engine compartment ? Do starter circuit voltage drop test ! When the key is in start position is there constant B+ voltage at the 10 amp crank fuse in the under hood fuse box ? This is an input to the PCM - engine computer to energize the starter relay ! Starter Voltage Drop The battery is good , starter is new ,what about the cables ? watch this video on testing starter circuit !
Have you checked the battery? How old is tge battery in the car? Do your headlights or ANYTHING work? What happens when you try to start the car - does it make any sounds (like a click click click noise?)or just nothing? Please post follow up. If you have a set of jumper cables you can at least check by hooking up the jumper cable to a running car - if your interior lighys, etc work with the vehicle on jumper cables and/or will start now you need to check tge battery
is your battery good? headlights nice and brite? are there any blown fuses? (fuses usually found under dash below steering wheel) do you hear a clicking noise? does it seem like your battery is low even though you know it is not? Is your car clicking when you try to start it?
does it make u think your battery is low, but it isnt?
Your starter solenoid will click but nothing else when u try to
start your car if your starter is not getting enough power from the
battery. This can be caused by a low battery, however it can fake you
out and seem like that battery was getting weaker and weaker over time
even tho what was actually happening was that the grounding cable
(black thick wire) going from the battery to the starter or a bolt on
something metal under your hood may actually be degrading over time and
test your ground cable with starter cables! put the negative(black) on
the battery then the other black end on anything metal that doesnt move
and is not painted. also make sure its not in a spot that could loosen
and fall into moving parts if the engines starts. Try starting your
engine. If it starts you now know that your ground cable is bad. They
are about $5 at autozone and 2 bolts to replace. Just follow it from
the battery down to where its bolted on.
mine is doing the same... all i did was reconnect the battery...and it worked fine...but know my hood wont open!!! so i cant fix the cable on the battery!!! i pull on the darn cable so hard and the hood still wont budge!!!
When trying to turn my truck on only clicking noise under hood and in dash. Sometimes even after key is pulled out clicking noise in dash continues for a couple of seconds. Battery and alternator was check at Advanced Auto parts they say both are good
I just had the same issues. No headlights, interior lights, power door locks, radio controls on steering wheel, or dash lights. Pulled every fuse in cab and under hood, not a one was bad. I disconnected the battery terminals for a few minutes. When I reconnected them every thing was working.
