Hit in the rear axle may have damaged bearings or brake parts. Jack up the side you hear noise from, put on stand, then have helper rotate wheel while you look underneath and listen to see where noise is coming from. Use length of old fuel or heater hose, one end in ear, to locate exactly where noise comes from.
Let's keep it simple check fuses and relays by swapping around the relays in the fuse box. IF THIS IS NOT THE PROBLEM . Most of the vehicle'll especially havea multifunction switch operating turn signals wipers headlights. If it goes bad you will hear clicking and grinding in the steering column it's just plastic junk made to go bad. Replacing will require removal of steering wheel and removing wire harness attached to switch which should run down your column if you are not comfortable with this take it to a dealer. Hope this helps
It might be the sunroof switch that needs resetting,
Press open and keep button pressed till you hear a clicking sound, then press close and keep button pressed till you hear clicking sound that should have reset the switch.
If the lights go dim when you try to start the car, your battery is poor, and needs replacing. If the lights are bright, and the car is just clicking, the it is likely to be your starter motors solenoid, and needs replacing. Hope that helps.
is it an overhead cam motor? if not most likely the hydraulic lifters. its pretty common for gm engines (all the 96 and up vortecs do it) if the piston was hitting anything it wouldnt be a clicking noise, and your knock sensor would shut down the engine. however being that it comes from just one side of the motor im almost certain its an exhaust leak at the manifold. those are your options but im certain its an exhaust leak. hope this helps
please check your battery condition.
clicking sound you hear is from the magnetic switch ***'y of the starter.
no lights & stuck ignition key is caused by a low power or bad battery.
hope this may help.
The clicking sound you hear is the solonoid on the starter trying to engage your starter into the ring gear,in my opinion i would say that the starter is jammed (needs replaced) but be sure to get the battery checked first as a low battery voltage will result in a poor crank effort aswell,Hope this helps!
the first thing is to figure out which pump... there is a transfer pump (in the fuel tank) and a high pressure pump (under the right rear of the car) get under the car and have someone turn the key to "run"... if you HEAR a humming sound coming from the pump that you can SEE, then it is most likely the transfer pump... if you hear NOTHING then remove the boot on the pump and check for voltage on the positive terminal using a light or a meter. If no voltage then check fuse or the fuel pump relay. (hint: you should hear a "clicking" sound with your ear close to the fuse panel when you turn the key...) VW fuel pumps are really reliable as long as you don't have too much dirt or water in the tank. Eliminate the electrical circuit and high pressure pump as suspects before looking at the transfer pump. Hope this helps.. (oh, and have a clamp handy when changing the high pressure pump to avoid a huge fuel spill!)
