Hi Chris, I'm glad to help!

Chris it sounds like you are getting power to the starter when you say it clicks. Here's what you need to do! Take a breaker bar and socket put it on the crankshaft bolt and try to turn the engine over by hand. If you can not move it then take the serpentine belt off and try to turn it over by hand. If you can move it that means something is locked up. Try turning each pulley by hand until you find what is locked up and replace that part. NOTE: If after removing the serpentine belt you still can not move it then your engine is locked up and will need to be replaced or repaired if possible. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Chris.

Sounds like a bad connection. Clean all the connections first then if you have a clicking sound coming from the PDC (fuse box) on the drivers side under the hood then it sounds like you have a bad starter .
As the relay is clicking that means the ignition switch is good. Just insure that the relay is good. There is a spare in the PDC you can swap and check out so its the starter Starter/solenoid combo.take your volt meter and check battery volts while the starter is engaged, if you see very little change from the static voltage it's likely the starter bendix is being egaged into the ring gear but the high current side of the starter is not working, this is likely due to a dirty or worn commutator or worn brushes in the starter motor. If you do see a larger drop in voltage( say down to under 9.5volts) you more than likely have a current flow issue, possibly a weak cell in the battery, or a shorted starter motor winding.My best recomendation would be to remove the starter motor, and the battery, take them in with you to your local parts house and have them both tested, most parts stores will perform these tests for free, on the possibility that hey can sell you something.
STARTER MOTORREMOVAL:-1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.2. Raise and support the vehicle.3. Remove the nut and lock washer securing the starter motor to the mounting stud on the transmission torque converter housing Starter Motor Remove/Install4. While supporting the starter motor with one hand, use the other hand to remove the upper mounting screw from the starter motor.5. Slide the automatic transmission cooler tube bracket forward on the tubes far enough for the starter motor mounting flange to be removed from the lower mounting stud.6. Move the starter motor towards the front of the vehicle far enough for the nose of the starter pinion housing to clear the transmission torque converter housing. Always support the starter motor during this process, do not let the starter motor hang from the wire harness.7. Tilt the nose downwards and lower the starter motor far enough to access and remove the nut that secures the battery positive cable connector eyelet to the solenoid battery terminal stud. Always support the starter motor during this process, do not let the starter motor hang from the wire harness.8. Remove the battery positive cable connector eyelet from the solenoid battery terminal stud. Always support the starter motor during this process, do not let the starter motor hang from the wire harness.9. Disconnect the battery positive cable wire harness connector from the solenoid terminal connector receptacle. Always support the starter motor during this process, do not let the starter motor hang from the wire harness.10.Remove the starter motor from the engine compartment. --This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

My 99 Durango won't start. When I turn the key


Have your battery checked. It should read 12 - 14VDC and stay at 12VDC and above while turing the key to start it.

Car won't start and starter is only making clunking noise


You can take out the spark plugs, keep track of your spark plug wire order, try to crank it over see if the engine turns over.


Check voltage on your new battery, some need to charge when new.

check for corrosion on the battery and starter cables.

Sounds like you might need a new starter. If the lights and radio still come on, then you may need a new battery.

Won't start, just makes a clicking sound.


The car will not start, just make clicking noise, it can be problem related to weak car battery or faulty starter,When starter gets faulty, it will just make clicking noise,But if battery looses its charge then also same noise will be heard.So first test car battery.It should have 12 volts. If it shows 12 volt,then check the starter and its connections. ------------ For more troubleshooting, click the link below:--- http://howtobyme.blogspot.com/2011/10/car-troubleshooting-tips.html ----------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

My darango won't start, replaced that alternator and relays. starter is still good. but it won't even click over.


this could be as simple as a bad battery have you tryed to jump start it? if you try and that dosent work make sure you have power going to the starter with jumper cables on the battery. it should at the very least make a clicking sound while trying to start it check the battery posts also make sure they are clean and if it does click give it a minute and try starting it again.[ dont take the cables off the battery while waiting] the fact the starter doesent even click when you try to start it tells me no power to it or bad starter remember just because its new dosent mean it works i cant tell you how many times i have put somethig on a car and had to take it back off because it didnt work from the boxx new. and make sure the starter wires are tight and clean. if no clicking and you have power to starter then starter is bad.. i hope this helps..
