Car wont start, Not the Battery..Just Charged it(Checked at AutoZone)


If you are hearing a clicking sound but the engine is not cranking you may have a bad connection on one or both of your battery cables. If your cables check out good then your starter may need replacing.

1986 ford f350 won't start


The solenoid click sounds very strong, implying that you have a charged battery and the ignition circuit is functioning out to the solenoid. Suspect an issue with the starter motor. Is the starter motor installed and connected properly?

1994 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner - won't start with new battery, lights won't come on


Check your battery connections on the battery and the other ends where they go the ground will go to the engine block and the positive to a solenoid make sure all of this is tight and has no corrosion. This is just a loose wiring problem

I have a 2000 toyota camry. I turn the key on, dash board lights come on but the engine wont turn. checked the battery, fuses. they are good. could it be the alternator.


Did you have the battery checked by a doing a load test? Do you hear a "clicking" sound when you turn the key to start? If you hear a clicking sound, and you're positive the battery is good (fully charged) it could indicate a bad starter solenoid.

By the way....what kind of vehicle is it....a 00 Camry or an 04 Impala?

Truck wont start red light keeps blinking fast keep hearing clicking under the hood and in the cab dont know what happened got in the truck to start it, and had driven down the road and it died. now the...


THAT SOUNDS LIKE LOW VOLTAGE. PUT A VOLTMETER ON THE BATTERY WHILE TURNING THE KEY IN THE START POSITION. IF THE VOLTAGE DROPS BELOW 8 VOLTS, THAT IS TOO LOW. BATTERY NEEDS TO BE CHARGED OR REPLACED & TERMINALS CLEANED. IF IT STARTS CHECK THE CHARGING SYSTEM. MOTOR RUNNING, VOLTAGE AT THE BATTERY SHOULD READ 13.90 TO 14.90. IF IT IS TOO LOW GET THE ALTERNATOR TESTED.

Truck wont turn over hear a clicking sound


Assuming your battery is fully charged it sounds like a starter.

The click you are hearing is the solenoid switch on the starter (basically a relay). Turn the key on and off a few times while someone give the starter a good few wackes with a piece of wood or other hard object. When it starts to crank over hold the key in the start position until it starts....then drive to the parts store and buy a new starter.

Cheers,

Kevin

Try replacing the fuel sending unit first. Then check your ignition relays. Are you ruining any codes. because for the most part your truck will tell you whats wrong if your pump is bad it should run a low fuel pressure code and if there is something with the ignition you might run a oxygen sensor code. when you turn it over do you smell gas.
