Have a load test done on the battery as this is an indication of a battery on the way out.

SOURCE: wont start funny clicking sound when i turn the key ???

Hi!!

The clicking you are hearing, is the sound of a weak battery, Jump start the vehicle and take it to an AutoZone for a Charging System check.

Good Luck!!

I have a 2000 Ford Taurus. My wife left the radio running with the ignition off for a short while. Now the car won't turn over, won't start, won't jump. There is one click when trying to s


The click you are hearing is most likely the start slenoid making contact, however you should short the large wires @ the solenoid to make certain the starter still doesn't run, if so try tapping the starter with a hammer to shift the comutator a litle and try to start. Even if it now starts the starter will continue to give you problems so the proper fix is change the starter

Wont start


check the distributor & rotor arm & clean with fine grade sandpaper if required,
try this: check the fuel pump it should make a whirring sound when try to start the car, put the key in the ignition & turn it a couple of clicks but do not turn the car over, if you hear the whirring sound the fuel pump is working if not then change the relay for the fuel pump & try again, if you now hear the fuel pump working then turn the ignition off then on a couple of clicks then off again, do this two or three times then try & start the car, failing this it could be a problem with the coils, the spark plugs, the leads, or it could be bad compression in your cylinders. try all of the above before considering faulty cylinders/piston rings as this is very unlikely on a 7 year lod vehicle unless it has been thrashed & treated to a very hard life. please rate my answer, Paul.

This is because the spark plugs are fouled out have the spark plugs replaced and make sure they are winter plugs some cars have colder plugs for the summer which have a hard time in the winter.
