The clicking noise is coming from your starter or more specifically your solenoid on your starter. (It's attached right on the side of your starter.) If you can find a way to get to it, take something hard and tap on the solenoid and that will free it up. If that doesn't work try tapping it and the starter while someone else is turning the key. If it happens again it means that your starter is going out and you will have to replace it but that is easy enough so don't worry about it. Hope this helps, let me know how it goes. Goodluck!

SOURCE: wont start

If the solenoid makes a clicking sound it isn't the ignition switch. Depends on the clicking sound, one click or rattling. Try turning on lights and trying to start, if lights go out when attempting to start, voltage problem(usually battery or bad connections).

Before you go changing out the starter check for a burnt out fusible link going to the starter it will look like a wire but acts as a fuse and they burn in two just like a fuse. The symptoms you just describe are those of a burnt fusible link.

Get the fuel pressure checked.The fuel pressure is low , most probably.Due to this its causing this problem.If the fuel pressure is low, then this problem is related to problem with fuel pump and fuel filter, both needs to be inspected and replaced.A clogged fuel filter and hair line crack in the fuel line, cause the fuel pressure to get low.------- As you mentioned it cranks, but will not start , this indicates that spark plug and coil is ok.But still get the spark plugs and its connection cleaned.--------- But problem indicates towards low fuel pressure.Getting fuel pressure at local car garage should help.If the pressure checked low, then first get fuel filter cleaned, but if its not helping, then both fuel filter and fuel pump needs to be replaced.--------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Bad starter solenoid or starter, or possible loose connection or bad ground. Bad connection at the battery can also act this way.

It only clicks when i turn the key, jump to the

Probably a faulty starter motor, try putting the positive jumper directly on the large terminal on the starter motor and hot wireing from the smaller starter terminal to the positive side of your battery. This completely bypasses the rest of the ignition system and , if the starter still dosn't work , the problem is definitely the starter.
Don't forget to disconnect the battery before removing the starter.
Once the starter is out, check the contacts in the solenoid, this is a common problem or the brushes in the actual motor.

The only way the car wil start is if starter is

probably the wiring. Always check the simple things first. check that all terminals and connections are good, then check for obvious signs of wear in the wiring and put a voltmeter on the wiring from the battery to the starter to see if has broken down at all

Use to have some delay in start now wont start

if your battery voltage is good and its just clicking but wont start it sounds like you have a wiring fault to the starter if the starter has been changed. you will need to check that you have at least 12v to the starter and from the starter .

Turn key to start and it wont start, just makes a clicking noise under the dash. Battery is full charged, I've changed the starter selnoid.

if it is standard shift then check the clutch disable switch.... if auto then check neutral safety switch on transmission....confirm power to the starter itself.. report back
