Did you get the wires crossed some where sounds like you have a hot going to ground check that frist. then on the starter there should be the hot from the battery and a red on a little bolt from the key take a pair of pliers and jump from the hot of the battery to the wire from the key and see if the motor turns over

SOURCE: STARTER WONT ENGAGE ONLY CLICKS UNDER HOOD STATER

If the clicking sound is coming from the engine bay, from the relay, you may want to have the starter itself checked out. You need to check if the ground cable from the engine to the chassis is secured. If that is OK, you may want to have the starter motor checked.

My 2002 Toyota Tundra 4.7(V8) has an intermittent start and the battery drains overnight from 12.5V to around 10.0V. I've tested for parasitic draw and every time I test my reading is ~ .025A...


I think I would attack the drain problem first. Something has to be draining the battery, it does not have to be a steady drain. It could be something serious for 30 min in the middle of the night. You may need to pull fuses one at a time to try to narrow down the circuit. it could even be a weak component in the alternator or computer. I know you said you replaced the alternator.
If it goes down overnight, it should also go down during the day. Can you leave the meter connected and check it every hour or so ? ?
Another component that could be suspect is the key switch. I know you said you checked it, but it could be a part-time problem.
When the starter or relay clicks, I would want to know how much voltage I have at the starter post, and coming out of the key switch. Then how much at each point in between. You also have a neutral safety switch in that circuit.

I have replaced the battery and cables, starter, rotor and cap, tested the alternator and ignition control module, fuel pump relay. The truck still will not start and only clicks. I replaced the starter a...


if it just clicks when turning to start. if battery is ok. it is the starter solinoid on starter, that heats up then it will not start till it gets cool again. but if you can get a starter at a reasonable cost. go for it. good-day ! The symptom of a bad solenoid includes a rapid clicking sound indicating it is receiving too little power from the car battery. This lack of power may be from a low battery or corrosion of the battery cables causing the engine to not start. Corrosion is also possible in the internal solenoid connections, or a blocked plunger may lead to the solenoid being flooded with power and burning out the internal connections to damage the unit. Clicking on attempted ignition should be a warning to have the starter system checked. It can easily be located on any vehicle by following the path of the positive red cable from the battery to its direct connection to the solenoid. if you engage the ignition switch and the engine does not turn but instead emits a repetitive clicking sound, your solenoid is stuck open or closed and will need to be replaced.

1997 t-bird clicks when trying to start replaced


The starter selinoid is on top of the starter. This engages the starter when you turn the car over. Did the starter you bought have a selinoid on it?

Engine won't start, just clicks then eventually starts. 1992 chevy astro


Have entire starting and charging systems inspected and tested. Many components can cause these symptoms, poor cables (corroded), poor connections to battery (corroded), weak battery (old), tired starter. Alternator will not charge the battery properly if connections or cables are in poor shape.
good luck

1992 Toyota Camry won't crank


Check the ground cable going from the battery to
alternator, then to chassis. Make sure there is no
rust at the chassis ground wire terminal, and that it
is very tight. The fusible link will be off the alternator
red power cable,usually, but not 100% on that car.
Good luck.

If you are 100 percent sure that your battery is good then it is your starter going bad. I would take both the battery and starter to Auto Zone and they will test them both for you for free and let you know exactly which one needs to be replaced. Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!

get a new starter or starter selinoid, sounds like its hanging up possible stripped gear on starter of flywheel. If its a stick shift you can always put key in "run" position and have a couple friends push you in neutrel then when you gain speed put it in 3 gear and dump the clutch, if it starts you know the starter, selinoid, or flywheel is faulty

1999 silverado clicking but not starting


Might want to chg. the starter switch under dash, sounds like its shorting out or something and keeping the starter engaged, try starting it in neutral and see if it does the same thing. I am not sure if the starter switch and park neutral switch are one in the same or not, but i'am thinking they are, that would account for the starter drive kicking out of the engaged position when you move the shift lever. Also make sure your connections to the battery are clean and tight.
