If the click is coming from the starter, check that all connections are good. If from a relay, also check connections and make sure power is going in, and out of relay. Check block ground (often ignored) and see if engine will turn by hand (ignition switch OFF) If everything checks out OK, change starter or starter solenoid (usually by time solenoid wears out, brushes in starter motor are pretty worn, so you may be better off changing as a unit)
good luck

I have a 95 honda civic ex,wont start.ran fine yesterday,wont start this morning.battery is fully charged,new cap and rotor.would do u think might b my problem


if it wont turn over 1st check the ground s on the car and the battery 1st. your battery can be fully charged and the car will not start even over night this can happen. then look at the starter. Note: if you have over 109K on the car and the timing belt has never been replaced you will need to have this checked as well.

Car won't start and arms alarm when I turn the ignition


Dead battery armed the security system. Remove the battery cable let the system reset. Charge the battery. Use the key to unlock the door instead of the keyless entry. This resets the alarm once the battery is charged.

1995 geo tracker won't start. I've replaced everything except the ignition switch. It used to click when i turn the key, now it won't even click.


DISCONNECT YOUR BATTERY AND RECONNECT, THIS SHOULD RESET THE BRAIN.

ALSO...WHEN YOU TURN THE KEY, LISTEN TO HEAR IF YOU CAN HEAR THE FUEL PUMP COME ON...IF NOT, GUESS WHAT? HOPEFULLY NOT!... BUT,YOU MAY NEED TO REPLACE THE FUEL PUMP, IF YOU CAN'T HEAR IT WHEN YOU TURN THE KEY, AFTER YOU'VE RESET THE BATTERY!

HOPE THIS HELPS!

Turn the key.. car does not start. Hear clicking sounds like a machine gun. Charged battery up... still nothing. Alternator or need a new battery?


first check the battery output,should be 12.8volts(roughly)then if fully charged and the clicking is still stacato try the starter relay.(thats what clicks)

Truck wont turn over hear a clicking sound


Assuming your battery is fully charged it sounds like a starter.

The click you are hearing is the solenoid switch on the starter (basically a relay). Turn the key on and off a few times while someone give the starter a good few wackes with a piece of wood or other hard object. When it starts to crank over hold the key in the start position until it starts....then drive to the parts store and buy a new starter.

Cheers,
