Clicking noise when air is on and car is stopped

My Honda Element makes a clicking, or woodpecker, sound when my car is in park or stopped at light when the air conditioner is on. What could this be?

    It is constant. Would this be a constant clicking or knocking sound?

did you hook up the flywheel to the torque converter? the clicking and grinding noise could be the trans is in park and the flywheel is going around, or the torque converter is bound up and not properly in the pump of the trans, and the clicking and grinding could be the parking pawl trying to stop and lock the trans.(this is what stops the car from rolling) I think its a torque converter alignment problem.

It sounds very much like your battery is discharged, and does not have enough charge left to turn your engine over (the clicking noise is your solenoid trying to engage the starter, but it is not getting enough power to do so). The fact that your various little lights work does not indicate that you have nearly enough of a charge in the battery to start the car.

I think that if you have your battery charged (or replaced, if necessary), that will solve your problem. You might take the battery to Autozone or a place like it and have them check it for taking a charge (I don't think that charge for that).

Hope this helps you.

Truck won't start, lights, gauges, radio works, loud clicking ( like a woodpecker ) noise coming from down under engine area


sounds like your starter has a dead spot. time to replace. you can try to get it going by having someone hold the key in the start position and tapping the starter with a small hammer. Just make sure the truck is in park and has the hand brake on for safety. If this works, you just saved a tow charge.
