Have to turn the starter many times to get car to turn over and start


Probably the solenoid on the starter. Is that what is clicking? Listen for it, if clicking at the starter, probably a bad starter solenoid. Some cars, not all, have a starter relay in the starting circuit. If clicking at a relay block and not from starter, check for a start relay.

NO START 1999 CAVALIER


If the click you hear is from the starter solenoid mounted on the starter, it could either be a bad starter or poor connections between battery and starter. Raise the hood and listen closely near the starter for the click, when someone turns the key to crank. If the click is from the starter solenoid, have starter tested or replaced. If click is from a relay under the hood, then the start circuit will have to be further diagnosed.

This is gwen again no the car dont turn over but i hear a clicking on the right side at a fuse box all the lights come on the dash but does nothing


This clicking is due to one of several possible parts. The Starter relay will click if the Battery is low or has a dirty connection. The Starter relay will click if the relay has burned components inside and is the weak link between the Battery and the Starter.

A bad or Grounded-out Starter will ruin a Starter relay by melting its' contact points and then the Starter relay will make the noise you describe.

A smaller Relay in the fuse panel (Ignition Relay) may be keeping the small wires to your Starter Relay from working.

Start out by cleaning the Battery cables for the battery. If not fixed, have someone bypass the Starter Relay after you disconnect the small wires going to that Relay. When bypassed the Starter should turn and if the Key is turned on the RUN position, the engine should start. Be careful to have a stick-shift in Neutral or an Automatic in Park.

If the Starter does not turn when the Starter relay is bypassed, then the starter is bad. If the Battery is bad, then the Starter will not turn either. Check the Battery before condemning the Starter.

It just clicks, this indicates problem with battery or problem with starter.If starter is faulty then battery will just give power to starter and click.The engine will not start due to faulty starter.Most likely starter is faulty, but if both battery and starter checked out ok then there are other possibilities too.Click the link below:-- http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/06/1990-thunderbird-sc-when-you-turn-key.html----------------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

I would have the system checked by a starting/charging analyzer. If the draw is 1 or 2 amps and the starter doesn't turn, the starter will have to be replaced to replace the bad solenoid. Also, if the draw is 75 to 125 amps and it doesn't turn, the starter is bad.

Normally, a starter should draw 75 to 125 amps and turn vigorously, assuming the battery connections are ok.

I turn the key and sometimes it will just click and not turn over. I try this 2 or 3 times and then the starter engages and the vehicle starts.


Either the solenoid or the starter motor itself. You need either a test light or a voltmeter to check for power at the starter side large terminal of the solenoid when it just clicks. If you get voltage or light every time it clicks, the starter motor is defective. If you don't get voltage or light when it just clicks, the solenoid is defective.
