SOURCE: now there's a loud clicking from under bonnet when I turn key

Since you ran out of fuel, it's possible your car pulled sediment at the bottom of the tank into the system. I would recommend changing the fuel filter. The clicking noise is due to the battery being 'flat'. You need to charge it, and depending how quickly it went flat after trying to start (if it went flat after a few minutes of attempting to start) I would have the battery checked for it's condition, as it may be time to replace it. In the US you can get a free check of the battery condition at parts stores, with the battery in or out of the car, not sure about where you live though. Good luck, let me know what you find.

I think you have a battery problem, the newer type of sealed batteries fail in just this way, have seen it a 100 times, same complaint as yours, so have the battery tested, I think either the battery cables are corroded or the battery is defective. My experience? 35 years as a Dealer tech for Ford.

Flat batteries are a major reason that the program of the cpu becomes corrupted. Loose /dirty terminals at the battery will cause intermittent power surges which will affect the cpu performance. Check alternator output and check condition/tension of the drive belt

Ran radio on acc position on ignition switch it ran the battery down. tried to jump start and still won't start.


Check that your battery is not flat first ( do headlights work),if battery is flat it could be your jumper are poor quality ( not thick enough). Try putting the battery out of the other car in yours, if it still clicks then
Give the starter a tap with a hammer or block if wood while somebody turns the key to start ( could be faulty starter)

Why won't my '98 Chevy Malibu start, it just clicks??? YET, it HAS POWER!? I have a '98 Chevy Malibu. We turned it off after driving for about 5 minutes that day, came back 5 minutes later and it acted...


You know the 97 to 04 Malibu is noted for intake manifold leaking antifreeze into the engine. A little antifreeze in a cylinder can keep the piston from moving in compression stroke. Take a look at the spark plugs, see if any of them have antifreeze on them and maybe the starter will spin the crank with the plugs out.

Lexus es300 won't start


I had a similar experience just the other day, i stopped to get gas and turned the car off and when attempting to turn the car back on nothing would happen. Well, let me rephrase the lights inside and out would work as well as the ac and the radio. My initial train of thought was maybe it was the battery so i went and purchased a new battery which was around $100, I installed the new battery and the car still wouldn't start. Does your car make a clicking noise when you turn the inginition key or is it just silent? If it is silent, you might want to check to see if your starter has burned out. Luckly a friend of a friend does his own mechanical work and was able to remove and replace the starter for me. After the starter was replaced the car started right up and ran perfectly. Not sure where u live but in my area a starter ranges in price from $100-200, but they also charge a core fee ranging from $45+, which can be reimbursed if you bring in your old starter to the store. I would suggest getting a starter with a lifetime warranty as well, but thats just a suggestion.

Hope this helps,
