Question about Cars & Trucks
Check your airflow. Takes 3 to make it go. - (Spark, Gas, and Air). I have seen animals crawl up inside the air box and die, clogging the air flow. Found a lizard dried up and dead below an air filter. Leaves are notorious for this. They flop up (somehow getting past the air filter) and stick to the wire mesh screen of the Mass Air Flow sensor area.

Looks like ignition current is not being available to fire the fuel/air injected mixture from the plugs. Remove the cable tip which connects TO any plug. Hold the cable tip to any metal part of the engine block or any part of the body where the metal is exposed(not painted). Ask a friend to turn the ignition for starting the engine(vehicle). If the cable tip produces sparks, then the induction coil is OK, but since you have stated that clicking sound is heard which is actually the relay's which tries to get the induction coil to generate high current required for producing the spark to ignite the fuel & air mixture in each cylinder, thus starting the combustion required to turn the engine & subsequently power. So check the induction, belt tightness and finally the "Distributor"in the sequence as stated and you will be able to diagose which one of the above are malfunctioning............sodeep

First off, you should turn the key on and see if you can hear the pump hum for about three seconds. You may have to take the cap off and have an assistant listen for the hum. If there is no hum, locate the relay. It is under the hood in the fuse block. The bottom of the cover should tell the location of it. Most of the relays are the same so swap out an identical one. Try the key again. DON'T TRY TO START. Just see if there is a hum in the on position. If there is no hum, try striking the center of the gas tank with a rubber mallet. One solid blow is enough. Listen again for the hum. It may start, but your pump is definitely bad. It may not start again. To change the pump, siphon the tank as low as possible. Disconnect the wiring, the filler tube and the two straps holding the tank under the car. A new pump will have the rest of the instructions for the job. Good Luck. If the pump does hum, you don't have a problem there. Check for spark. If you have the quad4 engine, check the coil pack cover for wear. It's like an inverted distributor cap mounted to the bottom of the cover, it is white plastic and can break down with age and mileage. If you have another car, have the coil packs tested. Oh and if you do hear the fuel pump turn on, try replacing the fuel filter before dropping the tank to change the fuel pump. Good luck.

Used a test light at starter, on small wire check for voltage while some one turn key to start.if you do have voltage there starter bad . Replace it. If you need to move truck tap starter with hammar while some one turn key to start.Remember you'll still need to replace starter.

Make sure that your terminal ends are clean where they contact the battery and make sure that the ground wire connection on the block is good. If the clicking noise is coming from the starter and the battery is fully charged and has been load tested, chances are that the starter solenoid has worn out (replace with starter). If you can turn the engine by hand it is not "locked up" If you can't, changing the starter is a waste of time as you have a far larger problem.
Do what I said and you should find a solution to the problem.

The clicking you are hearing, is the sound of a weak battery, Jump start the vehicle and take it to an AutoZone for a Charging System check.
