SOURCE: Car wont start, makes a clicking sound under the hood

When you turn the ignition key to the start position you apply 12 volts to the solenoid. The solenoid is a relay switch that closes when you turn the key to the start position. When it closes It applies 12 volts to the starter motor.The starter motor draws a lot of electrical current, (so much so that they could not run that current thru the ignition switch, so they use the solenoid) What you hear clicking is the solenoid closing, or trying to close.I assume that "*****clicking" as you define it is a chatter rather then one click.

Possible causes: A low battery voltage. Has the battery been replaced in the last few
years few years. Try charging over night and see what happens
Bad connections on the battery terminals. Check for any white powder on and around the battery terminal. Use baking soda and water to clean the terminals (it'll fizz) then clean theem with a terminal brush. You can get one at any auto store
Bad connection on the starter solenoid
If it a manual shift, there is usually a kill switch somewhere on the shift mechanism
that prevents the starter from working if the car is in gear and the clutch is out
In automatic shifter the kill switch is in the shift selector mechanism so you can't start the car unless you are in park.

Hope this helps Lood luck Loringh

Clicking noise coming from the fuse box "under the dash" when I turn on the heat, now car won't start.


that item is called a relay switch. it toggles on and off depending on which electrical component it is connecting. if it's blown, they are cheap and easy to replace like a fuse, but you'll need to look at the fuse box chart (usually on the underside of the lid) to determine which one and where it's located. You can't look inside the relay to determine if blown, but you can replace them one at a time to test...
Also, if you're experienced in electrical, a paper clip can be used when the relay is out, to connect the circuit that you need. use tools and or gloves when attempting this method.

95 jeep grand cherkee clicking noise passenger side under dash radio won't come on while car is running or key in start position but will in acessory position also interior lites blink while car i


try this.. disconnect the vehicle battery entirely, connect a 10 amp battery charger to the car connectors matching the terminal leads..and power the car with the charger..you should hear a hum or buzz in whichever relay or circuit breaker is bad.. replace this relay and the lights and stuff should work..the charger will not direct-short but the guage may go full over indicating a malfunction..or extreme load.. maybe a window switch might be fried..you should be able to hear any issues as long as power is coming from the charger only...repost findings..

I have 2006 Nissan Altima. The engine will not start or turnover, there is also a clicking sound that is coming from the black wiring box, which is located under the hood by front passenger side...


What size engine ? The clicking you hear is probably the starter relay , provided you hear the click while turning the key to the start position . That black box is the fuse / relay junction box. Testing the starter electrical circuits with a volt meter is the way to find the problem . Voltage drop testing . Free wiring diagrams here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. Year , make , model and engine size . Under system click on engine then under subsystem click on starting . Click the search button then the blue link.Does your vehicle have a manual or automatic transmission ? First blue link for a manual transmission ,the second link for a automatic transmission .

Trunk will not release with key remote but i hear click noise from fuse block on passenger side dash i have no manual so i dont know what fuse operates what also never have found any other trunck release...


If the actuator mechanism is functioning (you hear the click) the next step is to see if the cable is connected to the latch. Open your trunk and press the button - watch what happens. You may have to manually 'lock' the trunk with the trunk lid open to observe the action. You can always unlock this latch with your key if necessary.

Let me know what happens ... good luck

I own a 2003 lincoln navigator. I have a problem sometimes where I go to start my truck and all I hear is a buzzing noise coming from my fuse box on the passenger side of the truck by the passengers feet....


Its the relay in the fuse box by the passenger side floor board. Remove the kick plate and its either white relay on the top (one is mounted horizontal on the right or rear position and vertical on the front or left. Its $6 bucks at Auto zone. You can switch both of them around and the truck will start and run till you get the replacement. Steve

Own a 1999 jeep cherokee sport has a problem when attempting to start while turning the key forward i am hearing a clicking noise from the passenger side fuse panel but the starter and engine do not turn...


The clicking noise you hear is likely the starter relay. (should be identified inside the box cover) You need to check that battery is up to full voltage, terminal connections are clean and secure and that there is 12 volts at the main power lead on the starter and power at the small trigger wire connection at the starter when the key is turned to the start position. If you have that, then very likely the starter needs to be replaced. If not you will need to check wiring and neutral safety switch as well as main fuses in the power distribution center (the box where the clicking relay is, near the battery)

Heater in dash makes clicking noise, stopped no heat


The clicking noise you are hearing is the temp door actuator. It is located in the center of the dash. If you look behind the radio from the Passenger side of the van you will see a white square box with a black or green connector in it. Remove the connector and then remove screws that hold the actuator in place. Install a new actuator and reconnect the wire connector. This should take care of your problem and your heater will be fixed. I hope this was helpful.
