Have a load test done on the battery. If it checks out good, take a voltmeter to the battery and have an assistant rotate the engine. If you see more than a 2 volt drop when the car is being started, the starter is heading south.

I assume you've checked all connections from the battery and starter to make sure they are clean and tight. It is a little weird that you do not have trouble starting in neutral yet you get a clicking sound in park. My first thought would be the neutral safety switch on the transmission but you shouldn't even get a click in park if that is bad.

One possibility is the contacts in your starter have worn down and are causing too more resistance (explains the clicking). At the back of your starter is a metal cover that is held on by three tiny bolts (6mm). Disconnect the battery first! (You might have to remove the starter to get to this part) Remove this cover and pull out the plunger assembly. Underneath are two brass plates. Compare one plate to the other. If one is noticeably thinner then it could be the cause of the clicking. You will even see a round groove in the plate. You can buy the plunger and contacts from this website: http://www.nationsautoelectric.com/densoparts.html or you can opt to get a starter from your friendly auto parts store. The first picture shows the bad contact on the left. Notice the groove, the metal has become really thin there. 1e874da.jpgThis picture shows a pitted plunger assembly. Always good to replace it too.cd09a24.jpgThis picture shows all the new parts installed.207ff4f.jpg

I have a 2002 mercury mountaineer that wont turn over at all the battery is good and there's a clicking noise coming from the relay box what would that be


The clicking noise will be relays. Possibly a starter relay and thats normal. Sounds as if the starter moter may be the culprit. You have to check for start power at the starter solenoid while cranking before any further daignostics can be done. Sometimes tapping on the starter motor while holding the key in the crank position will start the vehicle. If so the stater motor is defective

Won't start


so stop guessing, buy an $10 voltmeter (walfart has one)
and do simple tests. all very easy, ask.
the first step is jumper cable starts, ! cranks/ pass/fail??????
my guess, this fails.
if my car dont jump start, (i can coast start my car)
i check battery voltgage, alhhhhhh 12.6vdc, good. 10v bad.
i then hot wire the starter solenoid.
dead, (or clicks) , starter bad, big cables to it bad,(x2) or engine seized. (or battery bad, blow 10v cranking is bad battery 99%
i hand turn engine by hand, it dont turn, it's seized.
it turns by hand; good.!
so lets say the hot wire test works (keys in pocket cranks but dont start now , because my keys are in my pockets for safety)

that means the KEY LINE Is dead (small wire to starter solenoid)
see here. works for all cars. (not hacked key lines, etc.)

Turn key, makes clicking noise but not start.


Double check your battery connections. If the battery is new and the starter makes a series of clicking noises when the key is held in the start position than you are not getting a good power supply to the starter or there is not a sufficient ground.

2008 mercury sable turn key bfore start click click click


If you are saying you get a clicking noise when you try to crank the engine, it can be a weak battery, dirty cable connections, or a faulty starter solenoid.

have you tried to roll the pickup and put it in first gear because you have to roll the pickup to a certain speed like 10 mph or so and then put it into first gear should start the pickup. If this does not work that you have serious engine problems with that old pickup and might be inside the tramsmission problem. So let me know if this works out

My 2003 mercury sable will not start. it is not the battery. it makes a weird click click noise when key is turned in ignition. what could this be?


If you are sure it is not the battery then it has to be the starter. If it makes just one click when you turn the key then the noise you are hearing is the starter solenoid. This means the starter gear is engaging with the flywheel but the motor is no longer working and is not turning the engine over. I hope this helps!

Sounds like the starter is bad. I have an 02 Mercury Cougar that did the same thing. Bad alternator and starter motor.

Will not start, when the key is turned there is nothing no clicking and the motor does not roll over. The headlights work fine and no change in brightness when the key is turned to crank. Starter was taken...


check to see if you have a bad crank sensor try these websites www.alldatadiy.com and www.autozone.com if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for your van wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.
