1992 mazda protege dx 4 dr won't start. Battery is only 2 months old. Makes a fast ticking sound from inside car similar to turn signal light out.

Hi Robin, As the battery is new and presumably not defective, I think you should suspect the soloniod fitted to the starter motor. If that component has become defective it will give the sound you're reporting. Depending on where you live in the world and the labour charges, you can have the contacter's replaced or the starter motor (if labour charges are high) Regards John

1992 Suzuki Sidekick won't start

Are you in gear and not in neutral?
Could be your starter is dead, test your battery with a Multimeter and ensure that you're reading at least 12.5 volts.

If you're reading 12.5 or less 12.3 then your battery is in fact dead.

You could have a blown starter relay, fuze or a low battery causing a ticking sound. Your starter may have shorted out and the ticking you hear could be the starter solenoid.

Lights are on but car won't start there is a loud ticking sound but the car won't turn over

replace your battery. seriously i know it sounds simple but sometimes, thats all it is. just a simple fix. trust me i've built hotrods and spilt blood sweat and tears just to lay under the damned thing in the middle of the night and have a brain storm. and to realize that i just needed to stop and think simple, would have saved me days of aggravation, and tears! just try it. cadillacs are especially touchy. so always start simple.

I have an 2003 VW Jetta and I was hearing this ticking sound coming from underneath the hood of the car. Now my car won't start. A few days ago I checked my oil and its was very low. So, I put oil in...

The ticking sound is a valve ticking probably sticking if your car doesnt start now its probably cause the valve dropped and fell in the cyc and now froze the motor i would recommend not trying to start it again or it could harm your car more ....hope i could help Shane
