dosent mean the relay is goin bad most likly you have a short some were or your not getting the right amount of power to it get a new relay and try it out thats a cheap why to find out whats wrong kinda unfortunately if it does the same as the old relay ur gonna need to pay some one to diagnose the whip and tell you were in your wiring you have a prob

When you turn on the ignition, you WILL hear the fuel relay click in, then out again. But do you hear the pump run when it does? The relay probably has identical relays nearby, try a substitution.
However, once the engine starts, the relay has done its job, the engine should not die. So it's back to the fuel pump and the filters to check their viability.

no..that clicking noise is an electromagnet pulling a switch to close the circuit...its perfectly normal and your relay is working fine.

make sure you hear your fuel pump buzzing when you turn the key on..check fuel pressure.. also

if you understand how a relay works you can bypass it by jumping terminals.

a relay consists of either 4 or 5 terminals. youll see numbers like 86, 85, 30, 87 and 87a

terminals 86 and 85 are the electromagnet. 86 would be source voltage and 85 would be ground.

30, 87 and 87a are the terminals for the switch...since this relay has only one function i assume that 87a or 87 will not be used.

if you simply jump a wire from 30 to 87 or 87a..whichever one is there. you would be bypassing the relay and if your fuel pump then kicks on thats what the problem was

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

I have a 2000 dodge diesel automatic, starter relay is clicking but not starting.

what size engine ,what model dodge ? Pick - up ram 1500 etc.... Just because a relay clicks doesn't mean it can pass current to the starter ,also the starter could be no good. Viewing a wiring diagram an testing the circuit with a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter . Also check battery cables an connections using voltage drop testing .

My car starter motor does not turn over.


If you do not have any power at all, and the dash is not turning on, then check the battery connections, and the connection from battery ground to the engine body.
Also ensure you have tested the battery. Read the voltage across the positive battery terminal and a ground connection on the engine body. It must be around 12.5V
If there is no problem in there , then the problem is the ignition cylinder. The ignition cylinder can be tested reading voltages at its contacts. This in case there is no power at all.

If instead the dash is turning on, but the starter motor does not turn over, then there may be more reasons for the fault.

To start, look for the starter fuse. This is a large fuse, probably a 30 Amps. Look also for a5 or 10 Amp fuse to the ECU/PCM (main car computer module. If any of this fuses has blown, it can cut power to the starter motor.

After testing the fuses, check the starter relay. This is usually located in the fusepanel under the hood, or under the dash. The relay must click when the key is turned. The relay can be tested in fullusing a Volt meter or an Ohm meter.
The starter relay can also be tested swapping it with a relay of the same kind.

Fuses and starter relay are the most common failure when the car dash comes on, but the car does not start.
If this test good, ensure that the anti theft system is not armed (starter should still turn over by the way).

If fuses and relay are good, read volts at starter motor, while machineis cranking. You will need to use Voltmeter on the contacts at theback of the starter motor solenoid. If there are 12 Volts at startermotor, but motor does not turn over, then starter motor or startersolenoid is faulty.

The starter solenoid can be tested using an Ohmmeter at its contact. Ifthe solenoid is bad, reading with multimeter set on impedance, it willhave no continuity (it will read infinite Ohms).

If there is no volt, or volt is much below 12 Volts, then the problemis either the ignition switch located in the steering column, or aproblem concerning wiring from ignition.

The ignition switch can be tested jumping its contact, reading Volts orOhms on its terminals. To access the switch it is necessary to takeapart the steering column.

Clicks when trying to start it . have replaced battery ,altenator please help

Bad connection battery cable or battery cable is bad or starter is bad ! the best way to find out what's wrong is by doing voltage drop testing with a volt meter ! Starter Circuit Voltage Drop

I have a 1989 560sec everything on but starter wont turn over any suggestions?

If everything else works { lights, radio etc } then check the connection at your starter.

Clicking sound when trying to start

Is the battery charged up? It should be at least 12.6 volts.
If you have a voltmeter, do a voltage drop test on the battery cables, posts, terminals-looking for high resistance in passing current to the starter. Bad cables or terminals if you have high resistance. Youtube has videos of voltage drop testing.
If you don't have a voltmeter, take the starter off and have a parts store test it for free. If starter and battery are good, check for power on the small purple wire at the starter solenoid with key held in crank. If power there, and starter and solenoid were tested, then could be the battery ground, or a bad battery cable, a loose connection on the starter, or starter not bolted down tight. Maybe the starter and solenoid tested okay, but still not good. That's rare but not unknown.
If no power on the small purple wire in start, check the starter relay-is that what clicks? Try a new relay.
Good luck, half the time it's the starter, the other half is one of the above. If the click is at the starter, you can assume that the start circuit is good-look to the battery, cables, starter, or a loose, poor ground or cable connection.

1992 Suzuki Sidekick won't start

Are you in gear and not in neutral?
Could be your starter is dead, test your battery with a Multimeter and ensure that you're reading at least 12.5 volts.

If you're reading 12.5 or less 12.3 then your battery is in fact dead.

You could have a blown starter relay, fuze or a low battery causing a ticking sound. Your starter may have shorted out and the ticking you hear could be the starter solenoid.

    I go to turn the van on and all i get is a click, all lights come on and battery tested out fine. Tried jumping it didnt work, mechanic took a hammer to the starter still didnt work. Any advice will help...

    If the battery cables and battery check out fine then test for 12 volts at the signal wire at the starter when the ingnition key is turned to start. If 12 volts is present then the starter is bad or the ground strap from the engine to chassis is not getting a good connection. You can test for the the ground by placing a jumper cable to the negative battery post and the engine.

    No 12 volts when cranking? Then check relay or ignition switch.

    You can apply 12 volts to the signal wire at the starter to verify it will turn.

    Do the interior lights dim when the key is turned to start?
