Check your battery voltage, should be 12.5v if so, your next step is to try and tap on the starter, it may be at a "dead spot". Depending on how long you cranked the motor over for could of burnt out the starter brushes. Meaning you may need a new starter but try tapping on it first with a piece of wood or rubber mallet. The clicking is just the solenoid jumping, but the starter motor itself isn't moving, which results to needing to be replaced.

My plymouth breeze won't start, won't make a sound, but my lights and horn still works , help me.


any real answer yet? did the problem ever get resolved? i have the same problem with my sister's car. too cold to diagnose tonight, but will post the solution probably tomorrow. since the lights and heater works, but ignition and radio arent getting power, my first guess is there's probably a fried fusible link which controls the 2nd accessory power to the ignition switch. will post a solution soon.

My car won't crank, lights work, horn blow and


Starter not turning over?
Controlled by integrated starter selenoid. SOMETIMES, tapping the starter will cause the selenoid to operate.
Assume that voltage (12Vdc) is getting to the starter when the key is in the start position (take 2 people and a voltmeter to check it).

Hey I have a 91 cb lancer I turn the key to on then to start and all I hear is a click why won't it start what could be the problem


When you turn the key to the "on" position, see if the panel lights come on and try honking the horn too, if everything works it means the battery is fine.

Now, turn the key to start the engine. Does the engine just give out a click? If so, the battery terminals may be loose. Tighten the terminals leading to the battery posts with the correct tools and try turning the key once again.

My horn won't work. I've replaced the fuse and the relay. The steering wheel clicks. So what do I do next?


if the steering wheel clicks when you push on the horn then the wiring from the horn pad out to the horn is good.if it clicked before you replaced the parts then you didn`t have to replace them.check the horn at the horn,with someone pushing on the horn pad tap the horn to see if it will try to work if so then the horn needs to be replaced if not then run a power wire from the battery positive to the connector at the horn if the horn works again the horn needs replacing.

2001 aurora won't start at all. Hook batery up horn horn sounds and doesn't stop head lights stay on but nothing happens when the key is inthe ingition. No clicking or anything at all. alarm on...


The security system does not disable the starter, it only disables fuel to the engine. In the fuse block under the hood, locate the STARTER relay. Place your hand on this relay and see if it clicks while someone else turns the key to start...if the relay is ok then the starter itself is faulty. Good luck, i hope this helps.

Horn does not work in my 1998 escort, here clicking under the dashboard when horn is on. Is this possibly the horn relay switch issue?


If it's clicking then more likely the relay is OK and the horn is dead.

Try a pair of wires from the battery and directly onto the horn. Either the horn won't work, demonstrating that it is faulty, or it WILL work, demonstrating that the relay is faulty

Horn wont work.i check the fuse in the door and


Maybe horn became unplugged. Put 12 v power to horn make sure horn works. Put test light on terminal on horn have someone press the horn button, if light comes on and horn does not blow you may need new horn. if light does not come on you may have bad contact at horn button, blown fuse, broken wire, bad horn relay or possibly just a bad ground.
