Check your battery connections for corrosion. If so go at em with a wire brush.

My 2008 Camry will not start. I checked the battery, and it is reading at 11.9. When the key is turned to accessory the dash lights come on and radio works, but if I apply the brake or turn to start...


No fit a new battery ,also check its charging do this by jump starting the vehicle with proper cables and not boost cables then with engine running disconnect the neg battery terminal ,if engine stops then you need a new alternator if it continues to run replace the battery ,it should 12.7 volts or up dont start playing with relays or anything else .

Honda odyssey will not start clicking noise when key turned


Did you ever figure this out? I have a similar problem. There is a very light ticking sound when the key is in the on position but not being turned to start. In fact, nothing happens when turned to start now. It did at least click. The batter is good and everything electrical is working in the vehicle without dimming or anything. Jumping also did not change anything.

When i try to start it jsut makes a ticking noise near the front of the engine and an amber light flickers on the dash the car also locks funny?


Your battery is flat!! get some one to jump you or give you a push. You need go to a garage to see if your alternator is charging. Your battery may be to blame. Check the alternator 1st as it will cost nothing or next to nothing as a battery is quite expensive. Hope this helps. If it still clicks with a fresh charge or jump leads then give the starter motor a tap wit a hammer while trying to start it.

Try to start car and nothing happens. replaced


Do the dash lights come on ? They should come on when the key is turned to the on position. If nothing happens check the engine relay. It is not too expensive to replace if you really want to eliminate that as the problem. Check all wires going to the starter and make sure it is wired correctly.

Ticking noise when trying to start car


Hi

Sounds like a flat battery !

Get a jump start, with a good heavy duty set of jump leads.

Then have your battery tested.

Good Luck !

A FixYa rating would be appreciated thanks. !

98 accord wont start. lights flicker in dash and engine wont turn over


Have the battery checked.  You may have heard a fast clicking sound when the lights were flickering, if so it's coming from the starter solenoid.  If the battery is bad, have the voltage regulator and alternator checked also.  A bad voltage regulator or alternator will kill the new battery.    

Try starting with jumper cables, if that works, you can pull the battery out, take it to a auto parts store that will test it for free (most parts stores will do this).  If it's bad, you can put a new battery in and then drive straight to somewhere to have the charging system tested.
