This is always the starter solenoid that does this, replace the starter solenoid.

    it is easier just to replace the whole starter as the solenoid is part of it,

SOURCE: my car on tuesday would not turn over. It sounded

sounds like your battery is just low,, it doesn't have the amps to actually turn the car over fully, you have 2 options, get the battery charged, or try to get someone to help you with a jump start,, either way , once you get it started, take the battery and have someone do a LOAD test on it,, to be sure all the cells are taking a full charge

SOURCE: car won't start, but make clicking noise

Sounds like you might need a new starter. If the lights and radio still come on, then you may need a new battery.

I hope this helps. Good luck!

Car ran fine but now won't start and battery is working but won't jumpstart.


sounds like the starter motor, make sure the battery did not leak acid and corrode the cable, remove battery cables and inspect first. If cables and battery are okay then starter is most likely cause

Won't start makes clicking sound,plenty of juice in battery


A battery can show 12 volts yet still be dead (not pushing any amps). Many battery places or auto parts store will do a free test.

Won't start, just makes a clicking sound.


The car will not start, just make clicking noise, it can be problem related to weak car battery or faulty starter,When starter gets faulty, it will just make clicking noise,But if battery looses its charge then also same noise will be heard.So first test car battery.It should have 12 volts. If it shows 12 volt,then check the starter and its connections. ------------ For more troubleshooting, click the link below:--- http://howtobyme.blogspot.com/2011/10/car-troubleshooting-tips.html ----------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

My darango won't start, replaced that alternator and relays. starter is still good. but it won't even click over.


this could be as simple as a bad battery have you tryed to jump start it? if you try and that dosent work make sure you have power going to the starter with jumper cables on the battery. it should at the very least make a clicking sound while trying to start it check the battery posts also make sure they are clean and if it does click give it a minute and try starting it again.[ dont take the cables off the battery while waiting] the fact the starter doesent even click when you try to start it tells me no power to it or bad starter remember just because its new dosent mean it works i cant tell you how many times i have put somethig on a car and had to take it back off because it didnt work from the boxx new. and make sure the starter wires are tight and clean. if no clicking and you have power to starter then starter is bad.. i hope this helps..
