Most of the time when a starter motor clicks its because it is not getting enough power. check you battery & all connections leading to the starter. a weak battery or loose connections will cause this problem

lister for a clicking from the start motor you may need some to help you. if you or your friend hear the click on the starter motor then the motor and it does not turn the engine or goes crunch like its engaged but does not turn,It will need replacing or fixing, if no click this could be the starter relay or the ignition switch or you have a lose wire tot he relay.

2011 f150 want start just click has new battery worked fine yesterday today want start just click


Possible internal starter problem. Try tapping on starter motor while key is held in crank position. If vehicle starts, suspect a starter motor problem and replacement will be required

Why won't my car start? What is making the clicking noises coming from the engine compartment?


soleniod on the starter motor is the most likely source of the clicking noise. The starter motor may be faulty and not cranking over the motor.

Will not start starter makes click-click-click noises, battery fine, starter fine , starter relay fine, battery connections and starter connections are clean and still keep doing click-click-click noises...


We'd need to know more about how you have assessed these components, but something in that chain is still faulty. The symptoms you describe are classic, the sound of the starter solenoid pulling in, and arise almost always from

- a dying battery which cannot hold a full charge, but which can still pull in the starter solenoid, run the radio etc, but not crank the motor
- worn starter solenoid main contacts which cannot close the supply circuit from battery to starter motor
- a dead segment in the starter motor armature which is preventing it from rotating
- a bad ground, usually between motor body and chassis

You have mentioned all these things I know, but that click-click is a first step which still points the same way..

One way to narrow it is to try jump starting your motor from a known good battery or another car with running motor, taking precautions to avoid frying your electronics. If it starts, it is a bad battery you have. If it just clicks, then one of the other causes.

Tdi clicks on cold start


Sounds like a flat or faulty battery. Try getting a jump-start from another vehicle. The clicking is probably from the starter relay.
The relay operates with a click switching the power through to the starter motor. If the battery is low, the starter motor draws so much current that it effectively short circuits the starter relay which releases.
Now the starter motor is disconnected, there is enough current to re-operate the relay, another click, and the starter motor is reconnected and short circuits the relay again etc. This clicking continues until the battery runs completely flat or you stop turning your key.

Clicking in dash and no hot air


Blower motor worn and weak, taking time to actually start due to worn out brushes in the blower motor. Change the blower motor. The clicking that you hear is actually the springs that provide tension on the brushes. Sounds like the brushes have fell out, leaving only the springs to provide the needed voltage. Springs rubbing the contacts will sound like a slow click click click at first, but will speed up as the motor shaft starts spinning faster.

Car won't start, just click click click


Generally this means yr battery is shot. get it chkd. otherwise it is the connection to the starter motor or earth wiring. Basically it indicates that the main stream power from the battery is not there and therefore not enough to start the motor. cheers
