Clicking noise from under hood before it turns over. sometimes won't start, but will start when jumped. battery is good.

battery may not be good have it load tested --also alternator and starter tested---clicking would be starter solenoid trying to get starter to turn over ---check the connections at battery and starter for loose or corrosion

Clicking sound when trying to start

Is the battery charged up? It should be at least 12.6 volts.
If you have a voltmeter, do a voltage drop test on the battery cables, posts, terminals-looking for high resistance in passing current to the starter. Bad cables or terminals if you have high resistance. Youtube has videos of voltage drop testing.
If you don't have a voltmeter, take the starter off and have a parts store test it for free. If starter and battery are good, check for power on the small purple wire at the starter solenoid with key held in crank. If power there, and starter and solenoid were tested, then could be the battery ground, or a bad battery cable, a loose connection on the starter, or starter not bolted down tight. Maybe the starter and solenoid tested okay, but still not good. That's rare but not unknown.
If no power on the small purple wire in start, check the starter relay-is that what clicks? Try a new relay.
Good luck, half the time it's the starter, the other half is one of the above. If the click is at the starter, you can assume that the start circuit is good-look to the battery, cables, starter, or a loose, poor ground or cable connection.

Assuming you've checked the battery for a possible short and both the battery and the starter for loose connections, no click sounds like a faulty starter solonoid, which could work intermittently.

Car will not start. Brand new starter, wire to starter test good, good battery relay tested good. Why won't it start?

Is the ignition switch good? If the starter/solenoid; starter relay, battery and cables are all good that is about the only thing left.

Do you hear a click when you turn the switch?

Truck ran fine shut off started 4hrs later would not start

check your fuses/relays for starter,if both are good then check to see if the ground cable is connected to engine block. if that is good then remove starter and jump test to see if it is any good. u can still get a bad starter even if it is new.

Hear a clicking noise when i go to start my 2005 escape. had starter tested and its good. what might my problem be

Need more info, but I'll go with the scenario that your car never starts and just clicks when you have the key turned to start position: This is caused by either a weak battery, bad contacts to either the solenoid or the main cables to the starter motor, or the starter motor itself reads zero ohms (shorted). If starter and solenoid tested good, check the battery. Do a swap test to eliminate this possibility.

Wont start

is the earth cable giving a good engine and body contact.does your starter have two terminals and if so are they the right way around?is the battery any good?Is the engine able to be turned over by hand Make sure you have agood 12v supply to the starter solenoid when cranking the engine An engine test probe/light would be of a lot of use for you to do that test
