Have someone hit the starter with a hammer while you attempt to start it. not hard enough to break it tho. if it starts... .replace the starter. also test the voltage of the battery when you attempt to start it.... if the voltage drops more then one or two volts you will need to replace the battery. perhaps try getting a boost to see if that works out

Check the wiring to the starter.,the connection on the starter,and if you can,disconnect the starter,wire a solenoid to it and apply a control voltage to the solenoid and see if the starter turns.
maybe the starter has a dead spot.have someone start it,and hit the starter with a small hammer,preferably rubber mallet 16oz so you do not crack the housing..

the clicking noise is the starter relay engaging, you say it starts w/jumpercables-starter is ok, either alt is not charging the battery or the battery can not hold a charge anymore any auto parts store can check it and tell you witch is bad

Clicking noise is the sound of the starter being bad and not having enough power to turn the motor over. Replace the starter.

Car intermitantly will not start..make a click noise but not a click click noise it was jumped one day...seemed fine ...next morning started...next day would not start...my neighbor jumped it said it might...


Check the battery first, if it is ok you probably have a bad starter. If the battery is drained, you need to charge and test the battery and alternator.

Won't start...99 cadillac deville...no juice to the starter


hi, can you hear a clicking noise when you turn the key to start as the starter gets its power direct from the battery so also check these wires are connected and not came loose.
If you can hear a clicking noise when you turn the key this means the starter motor needs replacing ok.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Engine will not start. Get clicking noise like a bad battery.


If lights and radio worked, LOW load off the battery is OK, but trying to start (400Amp draw) isn't. My bet is that your Battery connectors are loose. Dump a COKE slowly on eaxh to rremove all the Green crystalline stuff (do it slowwwwww) then remove (Negative (-) side first) and clean up the insides with a piece of sandpaper. Put them back on (Positive (+) first) and tighten good (these are typically LEAD, so easy to ruin)
Try again!

Clicking noise when trying to start car,battery is ok, wont start


That Clicking is the Battery causing it not to Start. You need to Replace that Battery or at Least put a Charger on it for a Couple of hours to see if you can Salvage it for a While.

Hmmmm, from what u say, sounds like everything is ok, but,Bad battery can run lights, radio, but trying to start, will make clicking noise. U jumped it to start, and it did, another sign of bad battery. How are the connections at battery? Tight and clean? No corrosion? Check wire to starter also to make sure it's ok. If all connections are clean and tight, I would recommend removing the battery, take to parts store for free check to see condition of battery (low charge, or if it's shot). If u jump start it, u can also have them check the alternator too (free). U indicate dash gauge @ 14, that should be good. Battery usually has a date 'thingy' on it that u peel off #'s to indicate when battery was purchased, does yours have the 'thingy?'
