  • Yes, it is a classic sign of a dying battery which has enough grunt to pull down the starter solenoid (that click noise) but not enough to crank the engine. If your battery is fairly new, it could be the voltage regulator or the benerator itself at fault.

    Another less common possibility is worn starter solenoid main contacts, not passing voltage to the starter.

Started truck and just got a rapid clicking noise


That indicates a poor connection, a bad battery cable, or bad ground. Check for all three. Check engine ground, engine to frame ground, and battery ground. Clean and tighten battery connections, starter connections. Check your cables.

There is a loud clicking from the engine compartment when the ignitionswitch is activated and the engine doesn't turn over.


Have you had the battery tested or replaced ?
Checked for loose cables ?

The clicking is the solenoid on the starter

That could be bad or the starter it's self

Could be the starter motor, bad battery connection, starter motor solenoid, faulty ignition switch, siezed up engine.
Turn the head lights on and try to crank the engine, if you hear a click and the lights dim, it is a bad battery or a loose battery lead. If you hear a click and lights don't dim, bad starter. If you don't hear a click, it is the starter solenoid. If nothing at all, bad ignition switch.

1999 Pontiac Sunfire won't even turn over, but the


The radio will work even with a dying or discharged battery.

First, be sure to check all of your fuses in the engine compartment.

A full battery will keep the headlights bright with the engine off. With a dying or discharged battery, the headlights will be noticeably dim.

When you turn the key to crank the engine, does the starter try to turn or make a fast clicking? If so, the battery if low or dying. If it makes a slow click then stops, then it's REALLY dying.

If you don't have a battery charger, go to Walmart and get some jumper cables. Hook up a friend's car to yours. If it starts, then the battery was low, either from a bad battery or a bad alternator.

If it doesn't, you have electrical problems, possibly a bad starter or starter solenoid.
