The clicking noise is probably the starting solenoid. This means you have some battery voltage and the key switch circuit is working. The problem is either a weak battery, poor battery cable connection, bad starter motor/solenoid, or frozen engine. The voltage at the starter motor needs to be at least 8 volts with the key in the cranking position to turn the engine over. If you have a voltmeter on the dash, watch it while turning the key. Another way to check the voltage is to turn on the headlights. If they dim way down, your battery is weak or the starter motor is shorted or heavily loaded. If the starter motor is shorted or cannot turn because the engine is frozen, the battery cables will get warm. Make sure the engine is not frozen by turning one of the pulleys, or put a socket wrench on the crankshaft pulley bolt. Sometimes the alternator brushes fall out and jam the alternator. This will also stop the engine from turning.

My 2004 impala dashboard lights come on while driving it doesn't cut of but after I cut the car off headlights flash an clickin noise start what wrong with my car please help Loretta


Impala's are famous for ignition issues, are the interior lights of your dash coming on when you want them, or just by themselves? The clicking after you turn off, I would check the security system, i.e., remote clickers, cars computer, key chip, ect. Sound like your alarm is attempting to engage

Security. Turn the key to run. Let it sit for ten minutes, off for thirty seconds. Then try to start. Do this three times for a relearn. Don't try to start.

Clicking noise wont start


Sounds like a weak solenoid on the starter. Probably needs starter replacement. Those cars need a mechanic to work on them.

Car won't start . Clicking noise wen key is turned


It's your starter. Find location of your starter. By the flywheel. Then. Bang on it . Your car will start. You still need to replace the starter.

When I turn the key the car jus makes noise and doesn't turn over. Would that be the starter


If you mean it sounds like an electric motor just spins, it is your starter-the bendix gear is not kicking out and engaging the flexplate to turn the engine over. If it is just a clicking sound, it is probably a weak or dying battery.

MY 97 DODGE STRATUS WONT START, ITSGOT POWER AND WEN I TRY TO START IT I ONLY GET A CLICK NOISE, NOT THEDEAD BATTERY CLICKING NOISE JUST ONE CLICK AND THATS IT. I HAD STARTED IT TWENTY MINUTES PRIOR TO...


i believe if you remove the steering wheel upper and lower covers, there will be a button to push to allow the removal of the key..as for the no start, the battery light is on because of the alternator. Its faulty. the clicking sound could very well be the starter not having enough power reaching to turn it over again unless you put a power pack on it...try a brand new battery, test the alternator and removed the key..it is possible the the key not shutting off the way, is drawing power from the battery not allowing to start that way, causing what they call a "parasitic drain". charge battery, remove key. try that

if the clicking is repeated with out you releasing the key then the battry is in need of charging or replacing, if its a one click each time then the starter motor is faulty.

Cant start 96' integra


If you get the car running and your vehicle does not cut out, place a volt meter (Set on DC) on the positive and negative terminals of the battery while its running. it should read *Above* 12v (usually 13.5 - 14, sometimes just higher then 12, that shows its charging.) if it is reading less then 12 then your alternator is toast. Replace what is needed.
