Sounds like an intermitant problem with the TPS (throttle position sensor) switch.gl

How do I check for a short when battery cable is connected


The clicking noise from fuse box is probably a relay! Nothing happening could mean anything! Without turning the ignition can you turn on headlights, does the inside light come on when you open the door, horn work?

Hello .. I am having a maruti Suzuki 800 Or fronte with altered daihatsu 1 litre turbo diesel engine with turbo removed .. the car is lazy to start after 3days of not using .. the self start has a glow...


diesels need a fast turning starter to compress the air to a hot enough temperature to ignite the atomised fuel at the injectors. There in lies the problem I would suggest. 1 the battery is not good enough .2 the injectors are dirty /blocked and are squirting and not atomising. IF this is the case you will be getting "diesel knock". If you have removed the turbo then you will need to get the fuel pump reset as there will be excess fuel being used ( knocking and black smoke on acceleration). AS for quietening down the engine and compartment it has taken much engineering by manufacturers to get the engine as quite as they are now and this engine was noticeably noise when new.

run the tests, on the system.
2.0 L RF I4 (diesel
this is a MAZDA engine. based off their FE.
so you can either buy the Suzuki fsm and read about it or
read up on the mazda TDI controls.
id check compression first. (make sure engine block is ok)
then work controls.

One of Mazda's more popular diesel engines, it was also available with a pressure wave supercharger called Comprex.

1996 gmc Sierra- turn key and no noise under hood. New relay


WHAT RELAY? THE ONE IN THE UNDER HOOD FUSE BOX?...HOW DID YOU DETERMINE IT WAS BAD?...RELAYS IN MY VAST EXPERIENCE DO NOT FAIL OFTEN!
CHECK FOR 12 VOLTS AT HOT LEAD ON STARTER (THE LARGER WIRE USUALLY RED) GROUND BLACK LEAD TO STARTER BODY OR HOLD ON BOLT IF USING A TEST LIGHT OR MULTI- METER. IF NOT 12 V AT LEAST, YOU BACK UP ...TRACE WIRING, RIGHT BACK TO THE IGNITION SWITCH. BE SURE TO CHECK THAT ALL GROUND WIRES IN SERIES IS CLEAN AND TIGHT AS WELL. NO NOISE....MEANS NO STARTER ENERGIZATION!....FIRST PLACE TO CHECK!
***TRICK FOR YOU: TAP ON SIDE OF STarter body and car may crank over....it isCALLED "the magic hammer trick!

My 2004 Suzuki Verona will not start is making humming , clicking noise where fuse box under hood is thout was ignition fuse but not that battery is good don't know what else to do


Clicking noise is normal for relays but humming sounds like one of the relays is not engaging properly.Try swapping relays of the same type and see if it solves the problem.

I have a 1995 ford f350 turbo diesel snow truck, and when i turn the key dosent start and makes like a clik clik under the hood


Okay, If this noise happens when you turn the Key to start, your Starter Relay is bad. Now the other possibility is the Glowplug Timer. When you start a Diesel there is a pause in the initial cold start. You turn the Igniition Key to Run, then let the Glowplug Timer cycle. This cycle sound will be a series of clicks which also may cause the lights to dim.

The glowplugs absolutely must warm up to start a cold diesel engine. There should be a light on the dash which either goes off when the glowplugs are ready or a light will turn on when they are ready. It is only after that activity that you will turn the Key to Start.

Since Diesels take more power to Start, there are 2 batteries. As with a single battery system, every connection must be clean. If the Glow-plug Timer is working and you only get clicks by turning your Key to Start, check the things I said earlier. Your Starter Relay and the big cable connections.

If after all of that, the engine will not turn over and only clicks, jump the Starter Relay with 1 cable from a jumper cable set from the Positive Battery cable post to the Starter Relay on the Starter wire connector. Make sure the truck is in Park or Neutral. If the Starter jumper cable sparks and the Starter does not turn, the Starter is bad. If the Starter spins it confirms the Relay is bad.

I hope my Solution gets you going and that you consider this helpful.
