Have the battery tested at a local autoparts store. The voltage may read good until you try and put a load on it, like cranking your car. If you had a meter on it when trying to crank it, you might see the voltage drop way down. This would indicate a bad battery.

SOURCE: replaced alternator and battery, car still wont start.

My honda had a similar problem, however, it would not start at all. I checked everything, starter,battery, and even replacing relays, nothing worked. I ended up replacing the ignition switch. this is about a 50.00 part. You will need to remove some of the dash on the driver's side, 4-5 screws on the steering column to expose the switch. there are 2 screws that are visible and one that is hard to reach on the back side, however can be taken out with a small wrench (6 MM I believe). there are two wire harnesses that will need to be removed in order to get to that last screw. then re assemble as you have taken apart. When re assembling the plastic on the steering column, be careful to make sure that you align correctly or you will get a clicking noise every time you turn the wheel. total time period to do this is about 4 hours. Good Luck!

Bmw 318 compact 2002 wont start


How low is the alternator? 13.5 v with the motor running is about as low as I would want, but if you hear something running after you turn it off, it could be draining your battery. It is not uncommon for cooling fans to run after you turn the car off but shouldn't run for long. Can you look at yout cooling fans and see if that is what is running? How long do you hear the noise after you turn the car off?

I have a 1995 mazda miata that needed a new harmonic balancer, new battery, and oil. It was working fine until I was coming home from work ( after putting 10W-40 and 10W-30 motor oil in it) and had noticed...


Any Noises and/or Stalling or Misfire(s) ?
Will Engine Crank ? If so does it Crank Fast or Slow and/or Really Slow like rrrruh....rru...rrru..rrururu ......click.click.click.click.click .
POSSIBILITY - ALTERNATOR BAD or going BAD it' not generating power to keep the battery charged therefore causing all Electronics to slowly fail as the battery loses all life ?
Need more Info and Why was a HARMONIC BALANCER needed? The obvious of course it was bad , But you are driving a MAZDA and a harmonic balancer isn't just a harmonic balancer it has to be the EXACT HARMONIC BALANCER , they can look identical and still be different . What was the REASONING for the replacement?NOT A COMMON PROBLEM.

Car does not start or turn over , turn ignition key and no noise


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Driving and shut off while driving could turn on with key but here clicking sounds wouldnt turn over would this be the pcm


Sound like the alternator went bad and is no longer charging. Are the headlights dim? Have you tried jump starting? Have you measured battery voltage while you try to crank it over? If it drops below 12 volts the battery is dead. If it starts with a jump you should see around 14 volts at the battery with the vehicle running. If you see less the alternator is no longer charging.

2005 Mazda 3 won't start; when I turn the ignition the dashboard lights flicker and a loud clicking sound occurs


the battery is low on power. the lights will still light for a bit longer but your engine needs more cranking amps to turn it over. The clicking sound is your starter without enough power. Have someone help you jump the car. or if you have a manual transmission, get the car moving 5mph+ somehow (push or hill) and pop the clutch out with the keys in the ignition in the "on" position. your car will start right up. if your car regularly needs jumped you probably have a bad battery. if your car looses power while driving you have a bad alternator.

I try to start my truck up which is a 2003 ford expedition and it makes a ticking noise! well i jus changed the starter and its still making that noise. could it be the alternator or whats the problem?


The starting system consists of:
  • starter motor
  • starter switch, part of the ignition switch
  • digital transmission range (TR) sensor (automatic transmission-equipped vehicles)
  • starter motor solenoid relay switch
  • starter solenoid
  • starter drive
When you turn your key to start your engine, it just clicks, right? If so, more than likely this is due to a bad battery. Even though your battery may appear to be fully charged, it may have a dead cell, or worse. If you get a jump, does the vehicle start? If so, replace your battery.

Possible sources of the problem if the engine does not crank or the relay clicks:
  1. Battery
  2. Starter motor
  3. Starter motor relay
  4. Ignition switch
  5. Damaged fuse
  6. Anti-theft system
  7. Circuitry
