2005 Cadillac CTS tried to crank my car all it will do is one click i took the battery to go get tested and it was 12.3 amps they said it tested fine. So i put the battery back in and same issue 1 click i...


12.3 amps is a bad battery , 500 amps is good, but you meant volts
sure. (by the way sir your battery is discharged, gets forgot?)

12.3 volts rested is a discharged,state ambient temp and can tell by how much using SOC tables.
try jumper cables, try a fully charged battery, 12.6v is fully charged at room temp, rested. barrow a charged battery for friends car.

State of charge.. at room temp.12.3 is 50% charged,
the shops dont tell you that, just GOOD battery, bad,
its your job to charge, it
then when cars starts, the alternator takes over, 100%

the reason you are not going good ,is because no voltmeter in hand. For SURE.
guessing dont work here, only tests and measurements.

1; can you try turning the cars crankshaft by hand.?
siezed, bingo
2: can you hot wire the soleniod small pin to the outside big pin
like here,
http://www.fixkick.com/nocrank.html#test1
if the battery is weak, this test is useless. on all cars.
if it works then the key line is dead
if not the battery ,or cables or starter is bad.
there are 3 parts to a starter,
i repeat, the battery (charged) the cables and the starter.
engine turns by hand. yes.
those are all facts.
another tack.
voltmeter across battery lugs.
crank 0v bad battery or shorted or siezed motor.
12v, starter dead open circuit.
10v typical with fast cranking.
you can see this in 2 dimensions. here.
time is the horizontal axis.

Car is clicking but wont start


if the starter is clicking then with someone trying to start it tap the starter with a hammer and it will probably start.your problem sounds like the starter needs replacing.first check to make sure battery voltage is around 12.6 volts as this is a fully charged battery.if the battery is below 11.0 volts then you could have either a charging problem or the battery is no good and needs replacing.

Bmw 325i wagon slow starting then totally no turning over at all.All lights work dash is all lit up .Battery is fully charged car has faint click.but still wont turn over.I think it might be the starter...


I would try replacing the battery first. Even a fully charged battery can have bad cells which will cause the battery to not have enough "power" to turn over the starter/engine.

I have a 92 Buick Lasabre and yesterday I ran out of gas. I got more gas put in and now when I try to turn my car on there is a clicking noise, is this the starter going bad or the battery?


The clicking noise is the starters solenoid making that sound. If the battery & starter connections are clean and tight along with a fully charged battery the solenoid is at fault

Wont start but makes weird stuttering sound


Sounds like the battery is low on charge or is in need of replacement in most cases.
I would not change the starter until trying a new battery that is fully charged.

The Buick's engine does not crank when I try to start it. There is a clicking sound when I try to start it, but the engine doesn't turn over. What Do You Think?


The starter is bad or the battery is dead. If the battery is fully charged then the starter needs replaced. The solenoid inside of it is clicking

When trying to start 2000 Jetta, the relay clicks but Engine does not crank. Removed the battery and connected the battery cables to another car (which was running). Relays click a little bit more rapidly...


Sounds like a flat battery, it will have enough power to kick in the starter solenoid [the clicking noise] but not enough to turn engine over. Best to fit a battery that you know is good into the vehicle. If the fault still persists the starter could be faulty. To check the starter bridge the main battery power terminal [30] on the starter solenoid and the smaller terminal [50] also on the solenoid [power from ignition switch]. The starter should turn. MAKE SURE VEHICLE IS IN NEUTRAL WHEN DOING THIS AND TAKE CARE NOT TO BRIDGE POWER CABLES TO STARTER HOUSING.

Our 2001 saturn sedan wont start we only hear a click noise. can it be a blown fuse for the security on the car that may be causing the car not to start


Chck that the battery is fully charged . There used to be a syaing that, "many clicks means it's a bad battery. One click may be the starter". The solenoid is not engaging the flywheel. If the battery is fully charged the starter is bad.

Starter problems


Try to check battery. If it is fully charged it might be still starter.
Beacause you used rebuilt starter. For most Acura, Honda, Toyota
using rebuilt starter is not appropriate as it wont do the same job as brand new. You have to use brand new.
Good Luck
