1989 nissan pickup 4 cylinder when i turn the key to crank the engine i hear a click sound at the starter what could the click sound be?


could be battery . It needs a huge amount of charge to turn over the starter motor. It may work the headlights but be unable to turn the starter motor.
Suggest get battery tested at a battery seller to see if battery is really ok .
The click is most likely the solenoid on the starter motor clicking on.
You might be able to get someone to run jumper leads
Note +ve to + ve and negative to negative !
from their car while the engine is running and their car is not moving !
Wait 10 minutes
Then try to crank over your car engine .

I jump started a 4wd vehicle a month ago from my car and it took about 10 minutes to get enough charge in it to crank over the engine !

Rv won't start. starter just clicked rapidly after replacement, battery tested good. Dash lights (high beam and Turn indicators ) light when ignition switch is un start position


Poor connection either at the starter, battery, alternator, or loose engine ground strap. Fully charge the battery also.

Car will barely turn over with a fully charged battery and jumper cables hooked up


Hi as I am not there I will need to find out one thing, ( connect the battery on the car make sure it's fully charged, take the black jumper lead and connect one end to the earth on the battery, and the other end to metal on the engine as near to the starter as possible then try to start the engine) if this doe's not work the starter should be checked.

Why won t my car turnover


  • Okay, a clicking sound is the solenoid engaging the starter drive gear but the starting motor is not turning over. First possible is low battery. Second is bad or dirty connection, usually battery terminal. Good enough to energize solenoid but not enough amps to spin starter. Third is a bad starter motor, usually a brush corroded, worn or stuck.
  • Lift the hood and look at the battery terminals. if they are clean and tight, check the battery for charge. I usually hook a booster on and try cranking the engine over. ZIf it works, charge or replace the battery.
  • If it didn't crank, Take a jumper cable and connect the one end to the battery positive. Touch the other end to the starter motor terminal. Motor should turn over, if not, replace the starter.

2009 corolla hooked up jumper cable backwards, car won't start


TAKE OF BOTH CABLES AND GROUND THEM TOGETHER FOR 30 OR SO MINUTES, THIS WILL RESET THE CARS MEMORY, TEST VOLTAGE ON BATTERY WITH VOLT METER & IF IT IS BELOW 12.31V THEN CHARGE THE BATTERY , ONCE BATTERY CHARGED HOOK UP BATTERY LEADS (TO RIGHT TERMINALS) & ATTEMPT TO START CAR, IF ALL YOU GET IS A CLICK THEN LOCATE THE STARTER MOTOR & GIVE IT A FIRM WHACK WITH A HAMMER (SERIOUSLY) THIS WILL FREE UP THE STARTER & WILL ALLOW THE CAR TO CRANK

Trying to fix my Volvo S60 2002 model. It won't start but when I hook the jumper cables to the my battery i have all interior power. when i try to turn over the engine nothing happens except clicking....


Make sure you have a fully charged battery...clean the terminals real well.
Alternator only charges the battery when the correct engine rpm is attained.
A clicking noise could be the starter solenoid which is basically a relay / contactor but can block power from reaching the starter.
Worn brushes in the starter can also zap a battery's power.

Battery, starter and aloternator can be tested at most part stores.

From what you describe, I'd clean battery terminals and ensure battery is fully charged.
If clicking still happens, I'd move to the solenoid and starter.

Hope this helps...

2000 Plymouth Breeze. Car would crank slow a couple of times then start. Replaced battery but still did it. Drove it tonight and when I tried to start it later, it now won't even turn. Is it starter or...


possibly your alternator. if you have a multimeter set it to volts dc and, without the car running, set the probes on the battery. then start the car and repeat the process. the multimeter reading should jump if the alternators good. you will need to charge the battery beforehand it sounds like, do not jump it. if all else fails disconnect a jumper lead befor starting to ensure nothing electrical gets damaged.

Starter wont turnover,lots of clicking,flashing lights..with jumper cables hooked up


Hello! The Starter Motor may be defective or simply a matter of poor connections...Lets eliminate the connections...Are both the + and - connections, at the battery terminals, clean and tight?...If you have the expertise, the connections at the Starter Motor can be inspected and cleaned...Remove the Radiator Lower Air Deflector and the Torque Converter Cover...You now have access to the Starter Motor connections...Clean and tighten...If the battery is fully charged, it probably is not, try to start the engine...Or jump start the engine...If engine starts the problem is solved...Poor connections will not allow the alternator to charge the battery...Allow battery to charge (30-40 minute drive in cold climate)...If cleaning the connections did not solve the fault, the Starter Motor is defective and needs to be replaced...See photo below...Guru...Saailer

Won't start just clicks I have a new battery and attenltor


The just clicks is aways a bad connection causing low voltage at the starter, But the starter can be bad or ( hung in) Turn the engine by hand to se that it will turn if you hear a loud click when you turn the engine the starter ws hung, The starter being loose or worn out will let the gear climb up on a tooth of the flywheel. once cleared it may start right up. if there's alot of gear noise then the starter and or the ring gear (flex plate) may be damaged and need to be replaced. Low voltage is most ofte the cause, The old batery being bad or the new one being low, ( not charged) is most often the cause. After turning the engine, With jumper cables connected to another running car try again, Try hooking the ground cable of the jumper cables right to the engine block or case of the starter. if ti starts this way and not after you unhook the cables you have a cable connection from the battery to the block or the positive cable where it hooks to the starter bad

It won't turn over. It was running fine. I turned off the car and then tried to start it up and it would not


Most of the time this is due to a failure of either the starter brushes OR the starter solenoid. First chek to make sure that all of the wires are connected to the solenoid. 2 small wires and a battery lead. If everything is connected... use a set of HEAVY DUTY jumper cables and do the following:

1. Connect the negative lead to a starter mounting bolt.
2. Connect the Positive lead to the flexibe braided or solid lead that passed inside the starter. IF the starter runs but does not engage then the starter solenoid may possibly be bad. If it does not run at all then the brushes have failed.

If it just goes CLICK by using the ignition switch or the jumper cables then you may have a battery charging / alternator problem. You can also have a bad battery or battery cables.

It is OK to use a rebuilt starter as a replacement starter IF you need one.

Hopefully this will give you something to go on. If you need more assistance just repsond here and someone will help you.

Thanks for using FixYa.
