The Bendix may be stuck. Spray some PB Blaster into it. Or you may have a loose electrical cable, so tighten the nut at the terminal.

SOURCE: I turn key and hear one click, but no engine

If you gently shake the gear shift(just a ****) it starts immediately. My mechanic fixed it in one minute. The alternator is connected to some thing that is loose and after it got tightened - I never had this problem.

SOURCE: makes multiple clicking noise when trying to start

This could mean dirty connections at battery,low battery charge,alternator not charging,or bad starter.Check the easy things first.Make sure the connections on the battery are clean and tight.Turn the headlights on and see if they look bright or dim when you try to start the vehicle.As far as the battery,starter,and charging systems you can get them tested at most parts stores for free.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Bmw m3 1995 clicking noise when i turn on my motor does that mean the engine is bad?

What kind of clicking?

If it's a rapid, multiple clicking (like a machine gun), it's USUALLY a low battery, or a bad connection.

A single click for each turn of the key to the START position is USUALLY a bad starter relay or solenoid.

Wont start

the clicking noise is usually 2 things, step on try jump starting car and if starts have battery tested as it is probably bad (free testing at most chain auto stores), the other usual problem is that the starter has gone bad, when whoever tried turning off car while driving might have put into start mode and burnt out the starter when it engaged at high speed.

My car has trouble starting, Does make that clicking noise and I charged the battery. Seems like the cylinoid When I tap on it. after a bit, it starts. ????

A single click each time you turn the key to the crank position means starter, or solenoid. multiple clicks indicates low battery, or bad connection. I'm betting on the starter/solenoid since it will start when persuaded with impacts.

Car won't start makes clicking noise when you turn key

The click noise is the sound of the starter SOLENOID clicking but not contacting to supply voltage to the starter motor.
Now a multimeter test will confirm if the solenoid is contacting and if so then the starter motor is faulty.
It can be due failure of the BRUSH in the motor or the commutator. If so remove the motor and confirm.
Also if the starter pinion is struck the solenoid will click and the motor may not turn.

What can cause the starter to not start until you turn the key three or four times, Its a 1995 olds cutlass 3.1 engine

Few points can be checked out.
1, fault in the ignition switch by itself not contacting to the solenoid.
2. the solenoid not contacting , failure of contact if there is even the clicking noise.
3.Starter motor brush/commutator is worn out and not contacting.
4.Finally the starter pinion is struck, not engaging with fly wheel .

Car making clicking noise when trying to start

It's clicking multiple times without starting?Locate the starter.If you're not sure where it is,call a shop or a dealer and they will tell you free to attract future business.Tap on the starter 2 or 3 times with a hammer,not too hard,not too soft then try to start.It may take several tries but it should end up starting have a bad starter. Good luck! Greg
If that is not the case,just reply to this post and I will get an auto email saying you commented.
