This is most likely a starter solenoid problem, the contacts inside the solenoid that power up the starter get burned and the u will here a click but the starter doesn't turn the engine.

1997 f350 with 460 just clicks when trying to start


If you are getting a single loud "click" when turning the key to the START position, you most likely need to replace your starter. If you are getting a rapid "click-click-click" when you turn the key, you probably have a low battery or a bad battery cable.

1997 pontiac grand prix when key is turn to start it;s just clicks, it will not start, i try to bost with other car no help.


This sounds like a bad starter, i would remove the battery and have it tested, if the battery tests good and fully charged then i would replace the starter, it sounds like a dead spot. a quick test is to have someone hold the key in the start postion and you hit starter with a hammer or metal rod and see if it starts, sometimes it will, this means starter is bad,hope this helps.

It could be a battery or starter problem. Most auto parts places will test your battery for free. But since you cannot start the vehicle...you can also buy an inexpensive battery tester (bulb/ball float) to see if it is fully charged. Check each cell of the battery. Sometimes it is bad connections on the batteries. Take off and clean the battery post and connections with an inexpensive battery cleaner brush.
The starter has two components: The Solenoid and the Starter Motor. Two cylindrical shaped components. The small component is the solenoid, the larger is the starter.
To check the Starter you can short jump the Starter by bypassing the solenoid. With a helper trying to start, you can run a short medium gage insuated wire from the positive side (red) of the solenoid to the body of the starter. If this starts the Van then the solenoid is bad and the entire Starter must be replaced (about $70-remanufactured)
Let me know if this help or if you need any additional help.

Car won't start 97 windstar


Check battery voltage (should be at least 12v at battery and starter terminal) If 12v, check to see if you can turn the engine by hand (ign off) If you can't then it's locked up. (internal problem) Also, starter may be defective...just because its in a box, dosen't mean it's good (sad fact)
Hope it's a bad unit...better than a doa engine!!!
Good luck with it!

1997 Lincoln Towncar noise in dashboard


Is the noise coming from wiper area when you are driving on the highway? If it is the most likley solution is to replace the plastic peice at the bottom of the windshield that goes all the way across, on the outside between windshield and hood. when the wind hits it it makes noise.
