Question about 1988 Toyota 4Runner

1 Answer

Car won't start and there is a loud ticking noise

We have recently replaced my 1999 4runner limited's battery, and have had connection problems on the positive side, but could easily put it back into place. my 4runner just today started ticking in the fuse box, more specifically the red relay inside of it, after reconnecting the battery. My car won't start now and i am afraid to try to jump it for fear it will damage it. Thank you, any help is appreciated.

Cannot start loud fast clicking noise


Clicking noise would indicate starter solenoid faulty! This would also be the case if battery low but since you have a new battery you can look at the starter solenoid!

Your battery power has been drained. First thing I would do is to charge the battery via using another car to jump start the car and let it run for an hour or two. Or get a charger and jump the car. Either way I would run it for an hour or two recharge the battery. If that doesn't work then you will have to replace the battery.

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee makes a loud ticking noise, won't start.


Your problem is likely a bad battery and/or corrosion on the battery terminals. Remove the cables from the battery terminals and clean them with a wire brush or other tool. NOTE: always remove the negative cable first and reconnect it last. Reconnect the cables and then try to start/jump the vehicle again. If that doesn't clear the problem, take the battery to your local auto parts store or supplier and have them check it. You will probably need a new one.
