I have a 97 ford escort changed the battery and starter and all I get is a click. The engine doesn't turn. Could some one help


Just to be safe always check the obvious, make sure you can rotate the engine over with a socket/ratchet to be sure it is not seized, then check to be sure the hot wire to the solenoid ( big wire to stud on solenoid) has battery power with key in run position, check for battery power on the starter solenoid (small wire to activate solenoid) with the key turned to start the vehicle, , there should be power at the solenoid to engage the starter motor, if no power on the large wire trace back to find fault, same for the solenoid power from key, but from your statement of a click when trying to start sounds like solenoid is engaging . so either the power to the starter from battery seems to be open or to low voltage getting to starter from corroded wires, or the engine could be seized.

My 1996 Toyota Vienta won't turnover with the key in ignition. Plenty of electrical power, air con runs as does the lights. Fitted with an immobilizer, wondered if that might have something to do


Check wiring to your starter make sure all the wires are secure. Its mainly sounds like you need a new starter. If you hear it clicking it is likely engaging just not spinning

My 1993 Buick Park Avenue just Clicks once when you turn the key on starter won't engage the battery is fine


Sounds like a bad starter or a bad battery cable connection to me. If you are certain that tyour battery is in good condition and fully charged, your battery cables are clean and tight and are making good connection on BOTH ends, replace the starter.

My starter on my 2000 Suziki quad makes a clicking sound and won't turn the engine over.


Either the starter will have to come out for testing, rebuilding, or replacing, or the battery is not strong enough to power the starter-maybe it's low on charge. Are all your battery and starter connections clean and tight? Verify the condition of your battery before you condemn the starter.

Starter clicks butengine won't turn over on 99 Buick Park Avenue. Battery is fine and starter solonoid is clicking but not engageing and engine not rolling over?


sounds like a bad starter motor, autozone will test it free out of car.
it is a royal pain to get the starter out so pay close attention so it will be easier going back in.

I have a 1996 Ford Windstar with a 3.8 6 cyl. It


Have you checked the battery terminals too to see if the cables are lose or having alot of acid on the terminals, if so please clean the terminals one at a time by using a wrench to unlose the bolts that hold the cables to the negative first and then to the positive cable but make sure that you do not put the wrench touching both the positive and negative battery terminals or your battery will explode putting acid all over you !!! Another thing is that does your starter ever make a clicking sound when you try to turn it over with key ? When you try to start the car with key that the car starter should make a clicking sound that engages it into the engine so to start it up. If this is not happening then it might be your starter not engaging into engine.

The 4 wheel drive doesn't work in my 89 Ford Bronco


The sound is not coming from the glove compartment, it is coming from the panel behind the drivers seat, that's where the relays and computer are located.
The relays click and apply power to a transfer case motor.
The motor attempts to turn a shaft that engages the front drive shaft.
When the computer thinks the shaft has NOT turned it tries again.
It will try three times then quit, figuring the shaft has not turned.

Get someone to crawl under the vehicle and engage the 4WD (just turn on the ignition- do not start the engine) See if they can hear the motor attempt to turn the shaft, it will make a clicking sound.
If not the connections or the motor may be bad.

I have found the most probable cause is the relays on the control board.
If you are technically adept --
you can remove the small side panel from behind the drivers seat and remove the control board. (remove the power plugs first)
Clean the relay contacts and bend them a little to give them more 'wipe' to keep them clean longer.
Put it back in and turn on the ignition.
Then push the RESET button on the side of the board.
Try the in / out 4WD a couple of times. If it doesn't work turn off the ignition, turn it back on and push the reset button again.
