Dose it start when you get a boost off, and if it dose you need to check your battery connectors they may need replacing, and if thats not the problem make sure that your alternator is charging your battery and if non of these are the problem you need a starter.

Repeated Clicking usually means that the voltage is too low at the starter. This vehicle needs a boost After boosting vehicle should start up. When the vehicle start, have charging system check. Make sure that the alternator is charging charging voltage should be at-least 14 volts with engine running. If you don't have the equipment to do this AUTO-ZONE will do a complete charging system check for FREE. Good Luck

My car won't start but I don't think it's battery. When I turn the key to start it up the radio comes on and all of the lights, but when I crank it up it sounds like a clicking noise. What's wrong?


year, make, model, engine size?

If it is a rapid repeating clicking noise when the key is in the crank position than it is almost always the battery. If it is a single click every time you try to start it is almost always a bad starter.

Clicking sound but engine won't start


This actually does sound like the battery is low on charge. A battery which is quite low on charge will still light the headlights and run many other electrical accessories, but will not engage the starter (which requires much more power than other accessories).
I would start by making sure that an electrical device, such as interior lights, glove box lights, trunk light or something else has not been left on. Then carefully jump start the engine. It is also possible that the battery might need to be replaced for not holding a charge.

PLEASE HELP, MY CAR IS MY JOB!!!my 85 bonneville wont start. when i turn the key it just clicks. i checked the battery, and my car is getting power. but it wont turn over?


I'm gonna give you 2 possible solutions,since you didn't specify if it clicks once when turned to start,or clicks repeatedly.If it clicks once,and the dash lights don't flicker,it's probably an issue with the starter(dead winding or solenoid contacts worn).If it clicks repeatedly when turned to start,then the battery is low on charge or has a bad cell.If you're messing with the battery cables,make sure you clean any green corrosion off of the cxables at the battery(because of GM's side post design,the corrosion is hidden and often forgotten).I have actually have seen corrosion between the battery and cable mimic a dead battery.If you do find a lot of corrosion,clean it up and try charging the battery on 10 amps charge overnight.

It sounds like you probably have a shorted battery cell. This will not only cause the repeated clicking that you described, but it will also rob power when jump-starting from another vehicle. There is probably enough power when jump starting to turn the starter over, but after the starter take the power that it needs, there is not enough power to operate the computer system....so I have no doubt that you probably are not getting any fuel. The computer has to tell the fuel pump to run. If there is no power for the computer....I think you can figure it out from here.

Replace the battery and try it again.

2004 ion won't start. Lights work. When I turn key don't get series of clicks, get one snap.


That symptom usually means the solenoid on the starter is bad and no longer is completing the circuit to engage the starter. A new starter will likely solve that issue. A series of rapid clicks would indicate a week battery. You can try repeatedly turning the key to the start position rapidly, sometimes the starter wil start working. You can also try tapping the starter while somebody holds the key in the start position, if the starter engages place it.

Turn ignition to run not start,count to 5,turn off key. Repeat this three times. Try to start vehicle. If its starts you are done. If not you will need to repeat turn ignition on count to 5 then turn off, 3 more times On the fourth time leave key in the run position for 10 minutes. Then turn key off & start vehicle.
