    battery is good, but yes I have tried to jumpstart it also to be sure

    Have you tried to jump start it? Sometimes when the battery is on its last leg it will make a clicking noise and fail to start.

There are a number of things that could cause that. Try turning the key to the on position and crossing the starter terminals with a screwdriver. If it starts you have a bad ignition. If it still just clicks your starter has seized up or your battery might be lacking the charge to do the job. Hope these help you.

Some times you have a bad neutral safty switch so try moving your gear shifter in neautral or put it in between N and D and hold it and try it , if not hold it between N and R and try it . It happened to me too.It will start if you keep playing with it, be persistent.
hope it starts, fellow Lexus owner.

What is located in the glovebox of 2003 Kia Sodona that makes a click sound when trying to start?


There are several relays located in that area...it doesn't matter because the relays are probably not the cause of tyour vehicle not starting. If they are clicking, it can only be because they are working - or at least, TRYING to work.
It sounds to me like you need to check the condition of your battery and battery cable connections.

I have an '04 Sebring Convertible with the 2.7L V-6 engine. It has been running fine with no problems for over a year since I bought it. Then the other day, I had it detailed and drove it home...


This happens all too often on the Chryslers, the starter fuse blowing. The cause in most cases is the starter solenoid. I recommend replacing the starter and the solenoid when this happens, to keep from having to do it again a few months later, I hope this helps.

My 2004 pontiac grand prix gt wont start when i went to turn it on this morning to go to work nothing happened it just made a clicking noice. The guy at pep boys said that the battery was good. when i try...


if you turn headlights on and turn key to start do you hear clicking? if so starter is possibly bad,lets trouble shoot your problem.suggest you check the fuses under hood in black box,make sure those are good. when you turn the key, you should hear at least a click or else the starter is not drawing current.try turning the headlights on and at same time turn the key and try to start, if lights go dim the starter is drawing current, does it click? if so then bad starter. if no noise at all,,still could be a bad starter.suggest that you remove the starter and have it checked out.also make sure the car is in park for sure before you do any of this. hope this helps!!

My 1997 chevy tahoe does not start right away.


Sounds like a starter problem, suggest you get it checked at your local trusted mechanic the next time it starts... If the starter is your problem it wont start for many more times.

Electrical, the car won't start and windows do not work.


Try removing the battery terminals ,and clean them,and the battery post to where they are shiny,then replace them back on the battery,good,and tight.If this does not help,have the battery checked,If the battery is good,and you are sure of this,tap on the starter with a hammer ,but not hard,while someone tries to start it,if it staRTS,REPLACE THE STATER.

My Lexus LS400 was running perfect - no issues whatsoever. Today it won't start. Have tried jumping it but no luck. It acts like it is about to start but won't.


sounds like an engine immobilizer problem. close all doors,hood & trunk completely. lock and unlock the car three times with remote, then put key in door lock and lock & unlock three times.
did you accidently try to start with wrong key?

When I turn the ignition, the dashboard lights up but the car will not start (the motor does not sound to be turning over)


hi, if when you turn the key nothing happens or you just hear a faint clicking sound then this indicates that the starter motor needs replacing.

If you open the bonnet and get someone to turn the key to start the car you might hear a clicking sound coming from the starter motor if you hear this then this indicates the starter motor needs replacing, if on the other hand you hear nothing at all then you need to check all the wires going to the starter.
Also check the earth wires coming from the battery check they are all connected where they earth out on the body of the car and where it connects to the engine.

You could also try giving the starter motor a few hard hits with a hammer this usually gets it working for a few times.
Also if you car is manual gear box then put it in say 2nd gear then get someone to push the car slightly so that you are turning the engine that way then try starting using the key this also sometimes get the starter working be be warned this isnt permanent fix so get the starter changed sooner rather than later ok

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
