SOURCE: starter needs to be changed on 2006 monte carlo

It sound to me like the starter solenoid is bad. If you can remove the starter yourself you should be able to repair the problem. You will need to remove the terminal cover from the solenoid(be careful because there are wires connected to the underside of those terminals so do not force it.) If you look at the back of the terminals you will probably see that the inside part of the bolt is burned. loosen the nuts that hold the terminals and rotate them so that the burned sections are to the outside then tighten the nuts back. (not too tight because you can break the plastic) You can test the starter before you put it back in the van (after reassembling the starter itself of course) by connecting a set of jumper cables from the battery to the starter. Negative gets clipped to any good metal tab (usually where the mounting bolts go is a good spot) and the Positive cable goes to the big terminal where you first removed the cable from. touch a screwdriver to the smaller terminal and then touch the screw driver shaft to the + CABLE CLIP (not the terminal because you can damage the threads if it arcs) Be sure to have a good grip on the starter because if it works then it will jump. And keep your fingers out of the hole where the gear (Bendix) is because when you bridge the contacts the Bendix will pop forward and will shred your fingertips.

SOURCE: clicking noise when trying to start car,battery is ok, wont start

That Clicking is the Battery causing it not to Start. You need to Replace that Battery or at Least put a Charger on it for a Couple of hours to see if you can Salvage it for a While.

Looks like ignition current is not being available to fire the fuel/air injected mixture from the plugs. Remove the cable tip which connects TO any plug. Hold the cable tip to any metal part of the engine block or any part of the body where the metal is exposed(not painted). Ask a friend to turn the ignition for starting the engine(vehicle). If the cable tip produces sparks, then the induction coil is OK, but since you have stated that clicking sound is heard which is actually the relay's which tries to get the induction coil to generate high current required for producing the spark to ignite the fuel & air mixture in each cylinder, thus starting the combustion required to turn the engine & subsequently power. So check the induction, belt tightness and finally the "Distributor"in the sequence as stated and you will be able to diagose which one of the above are malfunctioning............sodeep

SOURCE: I can't start my car and it clicks once when tried.

If your negative cable was glowing, i would have to say the battery is shorting out somehow. It has to be under warranty... right? Tell them to send a tow truck.

Clicks sometimes while trying to start and starts sometimes


This is a common sympton of a starter motor going bad. The "clicking" will progressively get worse and eventually it will not start at all. Save yourself the expense of a tow by addressing
problem now while the car still starts. Before you try this quick tip, locate the starter and make sure it's safe and easily accessable. Then next time it's just "clicking", have someone tap on the starter lightly with a small bar or wrench while you hold the key in the "start" position. If it starts when they tap on it, that would confirm a failing starter. Make sure to tap on the metal body of the starter, not the plastic solonoid parts. Depending on your engine, the starter should be located on the lower
right hand side of the engine near the firewall. Hope this helps you.

1991 Lexus 400 - engine doesn't start - battery seems charged - 12.3 volts - makes clicking sound only - doesn't turn over at all.


Is it one click or multiple clicks. If it's multiple clicks, it sounds like a dead battery. Voltage isn't always an indicator of a good battery, you need to have enough cranking amps to be able to start an engine also. If you have dash lights and it only clicks once, you could have a bad starter. An easy way to check this is to try and jump start the vehicle. If it starts up with a jump start, you need a new battery. If it still doesn't start up and it just clicks, you probably need a new starter.

Good Luck!

If you tried jumping it and it still doesn't start, then it's not your battery. There may be a problem with the solenoid/starter. Try tapping the starter a few times with a metal object (tire wrench or something), but not too hard. Then try starting it again.

Cannot start the engine but the battery is new


Could be a million things.

  • Do you get a clicking noise when you try and start it? If yes then charge the battery.
  • Does the starter engage? If not then tap it with a wrench and try starting it again. If it still wont engage. Replace starter.
  • Does the Engine turn over? If yes check the coil and that there is fuel in the car.

Car wouldnt start replace ignition switch, clutch switch then starter worked for 2 days now starter clicks but wont start left overnight car starter but when turned off wont restart


sounds like there is a dead spot in the starter. i think the other stuff may not have needed to be replaced. when the car won't start, have someone try to start while you TAP the starter with a hammer.- probably the starter, though.

Battery good, wont turn over, just a click when try to start


it is most likley starter relay or starter.with vehicle in park and e-brake on have someone tap on the starter with hammer while your trying to start.if starter starts to crank then you know the starter is on the way out.if starter does not crank it may already be shot.srarter relay is on fire wall check power + ground.
