Clicking noise will not turn over after placing positive connector
The connector on the positive side of the battery had to be replaced. I replaced it but know I have power but the Toyota Sequoia makes a clicking noise when I turn the key.. Otherwise it's not turning over.

Re: clicking noise will not turn over after placing...
The clicking noise you are hearing. is generated from low voltage to the starter. the solenoid will not stay closed. to bring primary voltage to starter motor. solution take battery to local parts store have it fully charged, then load tested. the fully charged battery, should be the answer.

using the wiring diagram below, the switch terminal with the pink/black wire comes from the bettery and should have continuity with the terminal with the dark blue wire when the key is on. It should not have continuity when the key is off. Similarly, the battery terminal should have continuity with the terminal that connects to the yellow wire when the key is turned to the start position. If the switch fails this test, replace it. If not, please get back to us for the next step.
try this.. disconnect the vehicle battery entirely, connect a 10 amp battery charger to the car connectors matching the terminal leads..and power the car with the charger..you should hear a hum or buzz in whichever relay or circuit breaker is bad.. replace this relay and the lights and stuff should work..the charger will not direct-short but the guage may go full over indicating a malfunction..or extreme load.. maybe a window switch might be fried..you should be able to hear any issues as long as power is coming from the charger only...repost findings..
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.
FIRST TURN OFF RADIO.DISCONNECT THE NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE,THEN THE POSITIVE BATTERY CABLE.WAIT 20 MINUTES. UNTIL AIRBAGS DISCHARGE.TURN THE IGNITION KEY LOCK CYLINDER TO THE RUN POSITION.REMOVE THE CENTER TRIM PANEL AND THE DRIVER SIDE KNEE BOLSTER.UNPLUG THE IGNITION SWITCH ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR AND REMOVE THE SWITCH RETAINING SCREWS. DISENGAGE THE IGNITION SWITCH FROM THE ACTUATOR PIN AND REMOVE THE SWITCH FROM THE VECHICLE.MAKE SURE THE ACTUATOR PIN SLOT IN THE NEW IGNITION SWITCH IS IN THE RUN POSITION.A NEW REPLACEMENT SWITCH WILL BE SET IN THIS POSITION.PLACE THE NEW SWITCH IN POSITION ON THE ACTUATOR PIN AND INSTALL THE RETAINING SCREWS IT MAY BE NECESSARY TO MOVE THE SWITCH BACK AND FORTH TO LINE UP THE SCREW HOLES.WHEN CENTER TRIM AND KNEE BOLSTER BACK IN PLACE.CHECK FOR PROPER OPERATION OF THE IGNITION SWITCH IN THE LOCK, START AND ACCESSORY POSITIONS.
Loosen the clamps on the battery and remove. Replace with new battery of the same type and place the clamps back on making sure that positive(red) is on the positive connector and negative(black) with the negative connector. Or go to autozone, they will do it for you:)
Disconnect the connector at the coolant sensor. Place a jumper wire on the connector. Turn the key on to run position and see if the fan starts, but don't start car. If it doesn't run, try turning it with your hand to see if it is free. If it turns, unplug the connector at the fan and place a wire from the + side of the battery to one side of the fan itself. Take another wire and place it on the - side of the battery, and put it on the other side of the fan terminal. If the fan is good it will run at this point. Be careful not to let the wires touch each other since it is a close fitting. If the fan runs, start looking for a bad relay.If it doesn't run, replace fan.
If lights and radio worked, LOW load off the battery is OK, but trying to start (400Amp draw) isn't. My bet is that your Battery connectors are loose. Dump a COKE slowly on eaxh to rremove all the Green crystalline stuff (do it slowwwwww) then remove (Negative (-) side first) and clean up the insides with a piece of sandpaper. Put them back on (Positive (+) first) and tighten good (these are typically LEAD, so easy to ruin) Try again!
