It sounds like a solenoid problem to me. You should be able to take the solenoid off and go to a parts store to have it tested.

Starters go bad whether they are two hours or two years old. If you know how, try jumping the starter by crossing the power connection with the egnition on. If your headlights turn on then it's not the battery and I would get another starter. If it is close to the year mark, you may get a replacement starter for free.

HOW TO REPAIR STARTER FOR TOYOTA COROLLA 1989


There are several faults that give this indication. 1 is that the positive battery lead has a build up of lead sulphate on the inside of the terminal wqhich shows up as a thick black coating. The same will be on the bat terminal. Clean with course sand paper / file etc until the areas are shiny lead (silver) next the starter commutator may have a dead bar which means that the current will not flow through the armature making it turn. This can be checked by taking a jumper lead and momentarially shorting between the 2 main terminals on the starter. The motor wont move but the starter will spin . That narrows it down to the solenoid. When you turn the key the solenoid is energised and pulls the starter clutch into the ringear first and then bridges out the two main terminals just like you bridged out the terminals with the jumper lead. They have atendency to burn out the copper inside but you should hear the clutch gear hitting the ring gear. If nothing then I would say that the solenoid is at fault. You can replace it with a replacement part but be careful that you reassemble it exactly as you removed it.

1999 Saturn SL having random starting problems


Hey man it sounds like it could be a few different things. If you can pop the clutch and get it runing nothing is wrong with your engine. First i would try cleaning both battery terminals and cables then clean the connection at the starter. To do so remove the wiring and clean off any dirt or corrosion with a wire brush. I have seen this quite a few times bad connection at the starter keeps it from getting enough power. If that does not solve the problem your starter may be going out.The easiest way is to remove it and take to your local auto parts store they can test for you and usually for free.

2004 E150 van wont start. -5 degrees last night, battery is less than a year old and tests out OK according to NAPA test. When key is thrown, just a click is heard. Dash volt meter reads normal,...


START BY CLEANING THE BATTERY TERMINALS. NEG CABLE OFF FIRST THEN POSITIVE. CLEAN CABLES & TERMINALS PUT CABLES BACK ON & TIGHTEN POS. FIRST, NEGATIVE ON LAST & TIGHTEN. IF THAT DOESN'T DO IT. LOCATE STARTER RELAY ON FENDERWELL. TURN KEY TO START. MEASURE VOLTAGE AT STARTER RELAY. IT SHOULD READ NEAR 12 VOLTS. IF NOT CHECK NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH. THE STARTER MAY BE STUCK OR WORN AS A LAST RESORT HOLD IGNITION SWITCH IN START POSITION, AT THE SAME TIME TAP ON METAL PART OF STARTER WITH MEDIUM SIZE HAMMER. IF STARTER GOES AFTER HAMMER TEST, REPAIR OR REPLACE STARTER.

1999 XJ Cherokee will not start.


How old is your battery?
Try changing it or charge your battery. At Wal-Mart a new battery is around $50-$60 for a jeep. just look and see how many cca's you need. I think my jeep is 525cca's.

Starter problems


Try to check battery. If it is fully charged it might be still starter.
Beacause you used rebuilt starter. For most Acura, Honda, Toyota
using rebuilt starter is not appropriate as it wont do the same job as brand new. You have to use brand new.
Good Luck

98 Accord DX clicks once when key is turned, eventually starts


Check battery terminals and make sure they are free of corrosion and are tightly secure on battery. If all is good it may be the stater that's sticking. or maybe clutch safety switch on clutch pedal is going bad. Good Luck contact me if you need more help

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
