The easiest way to locate your starter is follow the positive whire from the battery down to where it connects to the starter, it is the main red whire from the battery. and make sure you disconnect the negative cable from the battery before you change the starter.

Highly Likely to be the solenoid.
But first make sure the battery is fully charged.

Why won't my car start?


Check what the battery reads while starter is running.Or you can turn on the headlights and try to start it to see if the headlights dim or go out.
If so then the battery is too weak or has bad connections at battery or at the engine ground or starter solenoid.

New battery won't start clickig sound buick century 99


If the clicking sound is coming from the engine area, it is most likely the starter solenoid. If you are sure that the battery is fully charged, then you need to clean your cable ends with a small metal brush and a mix of baking soda and water. the surfaces should be metal looking not chalky or green. It sounds like you just are not getting a good connection. You could also replace the two bolts on the cables.

Anything is possible, but I doubt the new battery has failed.
Chances are the alternator is not charging the battery.
The alternator should be able to power the headlights and engine once it starts.
You also need to know why the battery went dead overnight.

This can be due to a weak battery. The Antitheft can sometimes create starting problems by interferring with the starter. The Antitheft senses the Voltage drop as a theft attempt and reduces the starter Voltage in an attempt to keep you from starting the vehicle.

You can get a free test at Autozone, Oreilys, and Advance. Some will instal a battery free.

When trying to start 2000 Jetta, the relay clicks but Engine does not crank. Removed the battery and connected the battery cables to another car (which was running). Relays click a little bit more rapidly...


Sounds like a flat battery, it will have enough power to kick in the starter solenoid [the clicking noise] but not enough to turn engine over. Best to fit a battery that you know is good into the vehicle. If the fault still persists the starter could be faulty. To check the starter bridge the main battery power terminal [30] on the starter solenoid and the smaller terminal [50] also on the solenoid [power from ignition switch]. The starter should turn. MAKE SURE VEHICLE IS IN NEUTRAL WHEN DOING THIS AND TAKE CARE NOT TO BRIDGE POWER CABLES TO STARTER HOUSING.
