The most common reasons are a faulty starter, starter relay, battery, or cable.
Someone would need to check to see if you have battery voltage at the starter when the key switch is in the start position.

SOURCE: car won't start, just click click click

Generally this means yr battery is shot. get it chkd. otherwise it is the connection to the starter motor or earth wiring. Basically it indicates that the main stream power from the battery is not there and therefore not enough to start the motor. cheers

When I turn on the key everything comes on but it won't start


check starter hot wire. runs to positive post of battery. If just clicking noise check battery posts. lights will still come on if battery has some connection but a starter take a lot of cranking amps. If that dont work try jumping it.

Park neutral safety switch maybe be the reason for the no crank ! Try putting the vehicle in park ,then try to crank the engine . Testing the electrical circuit is the best way to trouble shoot this problem , along with do a voltage drop test on the starter circuit ! This will test the battery cables an connections .

Won't crank over,sust clicks,battery 12.4volts


12.4 is not enough

Any time you work on a car you need 12.5 or more
& have to charge or replace the battery if old or won't
charge.

The click could be the battery voltage or starter solenoid
