    Also is there any Temporary fix so I can at least get it to my house? Thanks

  • James Jun 23, 2009

    I just tried to start it again after letting it sit over an hour and it sounded like it wanted to start but then went back to the clicking sounds. Could it be because the battery doesn't have enough amps to make it start?

    Ok Thaks

  • James Jun 23, 2009

    Okay I just got a jump and the van started right up. Thanks for all your help. So I guess I need to buy a new battery or will this one charge up?

  • James Jun 23, 2009

It sounds like your starter needs cleaned or replaced. The poping noise could be the actuator not engaging right. As for the engine light, it could be just a coincidence.

    If it is the starter, the only thing you can do is tap it and cross your fingers. Also check your battery cables and try to give it a jump. Sometimes this works to free the starter. Other than that no.

  • Matthew Boulden Jun 23, 2009

    Yes, that is correct. Attempt to jump start it and see what happens.

  • Matthew Boulden Jun 23, 2009

    It should charge up, but I would stop by autozone and have them test it, they do it for free. They can also test your alternator for free. I am glad I could help.

My s10 when turn key on it makes couple clicking sounds then everything goes dead. Tried few times an wont start what may be the problem


The "clicking" is usually the starter solenoid chattering. This can be caused by:
  1. Bad Starter Solenoid
  2. Bad Starter
  3. Weak battery not supplying enough current to engage starter.
Turn on the interior dome light. When you crank the engine, if the light dims slightly, the battery is probably OK. If it goes out, or blinks at the rate of the clicking noises, have the battery tested.

My 2006 grand caravan is making a clicking noise when I try to start it. I charged the battery up but it still is clicking. Any ideas? Everything seems to be working it just wont turn over and start.


if the voltage is correct. it may be a bad solinoid for starter, or the starter itself. check and make sure all connections from starter to battery, are clean and tight. with car off, voltage at battery should be at least 12.6 volts or better,engine off, with the engine on and if alternater is ok! it should read at least 14.2-14.6 at battery. good-day!

When car sits for 3-4 days, battery goes down. Car will not start. Turn switch, sounds like machine gun. Lights ( in and out) blink, horn beeps, pumps make noises, etc. Samde for additional attempts. ...


You either have a battery that is giving out on you or something is draining the battery when it stands for a while. Have the battery tested first . If that checks out ok then you will have to check for the electrical leakage in your system.
