This clicking is caused by a defective starter solenoid, on this starter this part can be replaced without replacing the wholestarter.

91 toyota pick up won't' start clicking sound


your starter sounds like its sticking. the carbon brushes in older models wear down and need to be replaced. or, starter needs replacing/reconditioning. first try to tap lightly on the starter with a hammer then try to turn the key(bring hammer with you!!)
failing that you may need to get it checked. you could try a hill start to see if it is just the starter.

I have a 1991 dodge stealth es that will not start. I replaced the starter and starter relay so far. It won't make a single sound when I turn the key. No sound from the starter. No clicking. The dash...


It sounds as though your connection is not grounded. The starter take a lot of juice from the battery and your connection has to be solid. Check and make sure it is free of debris and make certain that all connections are secure. There should be no wiggling in wires. Make sure also. That you don’t have a starter ”fuse”. Some cars have a fuse and a relay.

When I try to start the car it makes a click sound and will not start. It only makes the click sound one time. I have changed the battery and replaced the starter and it still wont turn or even make a...


Did you also change the starter solenoid when you changed the starter? That is a possible cause.

Can you turn the engine over by hand from the crankshaft pulley to make sure the engine is not frozen or blocked? You will need a large socket to do that, but if you can't turn the engine over by hand, the starter won't be able to turn the flywheel either. The one click is probably the solenoid firing the starter piston to the flywheel but then nothing makes me think the engine is frozen in some way.

But if the starter and solenoid and battery is trying to turn a frozen flywheel, you should notice some drawdown of light intensity. Do you notice any change?

When trying to start my 1991 Plymouth Sundance America I hear only a clicking sound. I replaced the battery but it did not work. Can it be the alternator?


sounds like you have a bad starter.not your alternator.if the battery is good the car should start even if the alternator is bad.you can even drive the car until the battery runs low.the alternator job is to keep the battery charged.soulds like the solinoid is clicking.but no responce from the starter.have starter checked.
