If the click is coming from the starter then the starter solenoid is defective.

Sounds like you either have a low voltage problem or a poor connection. I would lean towards poor connection. Remove and clean the battery cables and re-install them ensuring that they are clean and tight and try again. Also, look for signs of corrosion inside of the insulation of the cables. You could have a bad cable causing a high amp draw to the starter,

My s10 when turn key on it makes couple clicking sounds then everything goes dead. Tried few times an wont start what may be the problem


The "clicking" is usually the starter solenoid chattering. This can be caused by:
  1. Bad Starter Solenoid
  2. Bad Starter
  3. Weak battery not supplying enough current to engage starter.
Turn on the interior dome light. When you crank the engine, if the light dims slightly, the battery is probably OK. If it goes out, or blinks at the rate of the clicking noises, have the battery tested.

Clicking noise wont start


Sounds like a weak solenoid on the starter. Probably needs starter replacement. Those cars need a mechanic to work on them.

Replaced ignition switch, key, battery and now car wont start after running then it will start up hours later..is it the starter?


When key is turned the starter is energized by a solenoid that applies power directly from the battery to the starter. Any loose connection will prevent the starter from turning over. The solenoid can also have burnt spots on the contacts inside case that will prevent current from getting to the starter. A click noise is the solenoid energizing so
if all connections are tight and the battery is good the only
other problem is the starter may be bad. Brushes on the
starter may have seen their life ended. this is usually identified by tapping on starter with a hammer while trying to start engine. If starter spins, replacement is needed.

Sounds like a battery to me.
They can show enough voltage, but when put under load they do not have enough amps to start...and amps are what really matters when engaging the starter.

its your starter and it went bad on you because there is a main cable that comes from the Negative battery terminal that goes to the cylinoed of the starter and pushes the starter into the engine block that starts the engine but to find out this that you have to get the hood up and have someone outside to hear if there is any clicking sound by the starter which shows it is engaging to start car. Check first the starter to see if it makes a clicking sound.

Car wont start, replaced starter and still nothing


is the starter making a clicking sound when you use your key to the start position ? You have to have the hood up while you do this simple test to see if the starter is clicking over and trying to start the engine when you turn car key. If your starter is not turning over it might be a short somewhere in which you can use a multimeter to find the problem. hoope this helps

DO you hear a clicking when you turn the key to start? Solenoid relay make a click sound when energized.
If the solenoid is not mounted on the starter motor then it will be near the battery
The key switch sends power to the solenoid. the solenid is a big remote controlled switch,and it takes power from the battery to the starter motor

1995 nissan pu wont start... everything turns on


check for power to the starter at the starter's connectors while you have someone turn the key. If there is power, change the starter. If not check your ignition switch, (manual trans)clutch pedal switch, and starter fuses/relays. Hopefully this helps
