Check if the transmission gear is properly fixed in neutral or parking and try starting it again. If it does not work remove battery terminals and fix battery back, Start again your 2004 jeep

Hi my 2006 Jeep Liberty won't start or turn over all keep hearing is this click sound when I turn the ignition , Plus I just replaced the battery .

Probably a starter. It sounds like the starter solenoid is working, but the starter motor is not energizing.

You could try this simple trick, but Im about 85% sure you have a bad starter.

Have a buddy help you push the vehicle in neutral for a short distance. When you get it moving at a walking pace, put the transmission in Drive, and let the vehicle come to a stop. You may hear a little clicking, but thats OK, it wont hurt anything. Put the transmission back in Park and try to start the engine again. Sometimes the starter gear gets stuck on the flywheel and it wont engage when you try to start the engine. This trick may move the flywheel a little so the starter can engage.

2004 Jeep liberty 3.7 makes clicking sound when trying to start. How do I fix this problem

if it is just making a ' clicking ' sound - then this is ususlly a sign that the battery is bad and does not have the Amps to engage the starter. the clicking sound that you hear is the starter solenoid.
replace your battery with a new one ( car batteries really are only good for 4 to 5 years ) -- and when you change the battery, check to make sure your alternator is also putting out the proper voltage to charge the system,, ( most battery test/supply shops will do this for free to make sure everything is fine ).
NOW -- if your battery is good (?) - then the problem is the starter solenoid itself and it will need to be replaced. the starter and the solenoid are sold as a complete unit.
to get your car to the battery shop -- just jump start the vehicle using another vehicle. ( NOTE: when attaching the cables to the battery - make sure your keys are out of the ignition, as the 'SPIKE' sometimes can harm sensitive computer units in the car,, after about 2 minutes of attaching the cables - then put your keys in the ignition and start the car. ).

I have a 2000 toyota camry. I turn the key on, dash board lights come on but the engine wont turn. checked the battery, fuses. they are good. could it be the alternator.

Did you have the battery checked by a doing a load test? Do you hear a "clicking" sound when you turn the key to start? If you hear a clicking sound, and you're positive the battery is good (fully charged) it could indicate a bad starter solenoid.

By the way....what kind of vehicle is it....a 00 Camry or an 04 Impala?

I put a new rebuilt engine in a 2002 jeep grand cherokee and it wont crank,the starter wont even click and i have 12 volts down to the big wire on the starter. Can anybody help me?

Check the battery. You will need to have an Amperage test done. You can have this done at most major Auto Parts stores. The short easy test you can do on your own is to disconnect the positive cable from the battery. Using another vehicle to jump start yours connect directly to the cable and ground to the engine block. If the vehicle starts disconnect the cable, the vehicle should continue to run. If it does your alternator is most likely good and the problem is a dead cell in your battery which reduces the amount of amperage the battery stores. If it dies or does not start you have a short in your charging system or voltage regulator. If the battery is good and the alternator is good the problem will be in the ignition switch circuit itself. This could be a fuse or a relay and all will need to be tested. In many cases the AC relay and the ignition relay are the same and are interchangeable for testing. These relays are usually located in the power Distribution box under the hood.

My Honda passport will not start. Its not the battery because the lights are on in the dash and battery is good i do hear a clicking below but not starter fusses are good however is there a fuse in the...

The clicking sound indicates that the battery is too low to start the vehicle. Accessories such as dash lights draw very little current, so they will work even when the battery is nearly depleted. Try removing the battery cables (negative first) and cleaning the cable ends and battery posts with a wire brush or sandpaper. Then check the water levels if yours is a serviceable battery, add distilled water if needed, replace and tighten the cables, then try to jump start from another vehicle. If it starts, let it run for a while and see if it will start again by itself. If so, that may be all you need. If it continues to lose its charge, you will need a new battery. If the vehicle will not start even with the jump, you may need a new starter.

Wont start funny clicking sound when i turn the key ???


The clicking you are hearing, is the sound of a weak battery, Jump start the vehicle and take it to an AutoZone for a Charging System check.

Good Luck!!

2004 Jeep runs when jumped. will not start on it's own

The battery cables need cleaning. Remove each batteyr cable and completely clean the cable clamps and the battery terminals.
Also, check the negative cabe where it connects to the engine ground. It is either loose, corroded or otherwise not making a good ground connection.

Jeep won't start

Sounds like you have a bad battery. The quick way to diagnose it is to first ground the negative jumper cable to a metal point that is attached to the car frame of the Jeep. If you can't find one just attach it to the negative battery terminal on the battery.

Then detach the postive battery cable from the battery (you can do this first if you feel safer). Next is to hook up the jumper cables to the car that is going to jump your jeep. Make sure the positive jumper cable is not touching anything on your Jeep first.

If you have friends this makes it easier!

Now you want to connect the positive jumper cable(red) to the positve battery cable on the Jeep. Make sure that the cable ends are not touching the Jeep at all (very important)

Now you want to go start the jump vehicle and make sure the cable still is not touching. Then go try to start the Jeep. If the battery was bad the Jeep should fire up with minimal effort. If you are still getting the same issues then it is either a bad cable or possibly a starter motor that is starting to go (high resistance).

If it starts bring the battery down an autoparts store to be tested.
