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

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.

    Sounds like the starter solenoid is working, but the starter motor isn't. If you have a voltmeter or test light, measure for light/12 volts at the motor terminal while someone tries the key. If the solenoid is what is 'clicking', but nothing at the motor terminal, change the solenoid. If you get light/12 volts, then the motor itself is in trouble.

    1992 Izusu Trooper 3.2 Starting problem


    starter solenoid is getting hot and sticking. you can replacae the solenoid rather than the whole starter. while youre at it, clean all the wire connectors and terminals with some sandpaper to ensure the best possible connection and transfer of energy.
    Is it an automatic transmission?
    Automatics regularly suffer this way. The starter is right next to the exhaust manifold. When the solenoid gets too hot, it takes a lot of "juice" to build up the same level of magnetism. Your wimpy wiring from the dash board can't provide what you need. You need to provide more amperage by installing a relay to directly pull power from the battery. See this thread for a diagram.
