Re: the car wont start. it blinks a lot of lights makes...
I had these problems on my 2005 911 when the battery died. Apparently when it goes IT GOES. I had no problem with the battery until this time and then suddenly it was dead.
I've heard since that this is common on Porsche 996 when the battery is dead and then is should also be the case with the 986 Boxter.
I removed the old battery and left the car without a battery for at least 30 minutes (while doing some other maintainance). Put a new battery in and no problems after that. On most cars if you disconnect the battery for like 15 minutes the maintainance computer resets its self and all warninglights should dissapear unless there is a real fault, then the appropriate light should come back on!

was there a solution to this one? my 93 accord lx is having the same trouble except it wont start at all now. ive got gas and spark and will crank but not start. wont throw a trouble code either just get the flashing CEL and clicking from control box which stops when the egr purge connector is opened. does anyone know the sequece of the egr/evap system. seems like something is getting hung up there. thanks
The clicking sound is an indication that the battery is almost dead, and will not activate the starter any more.
When is the last time the vehicle was tuned up and serviced? How many miles do you have on it? You can't drive it forever and expect that it's going to always start and run properly. You need to have it checked out by a qualified mechanic - the symptoms you have sketched out here could be almost anything.
Do yourself a favor and invest a few dollars to get some reliability back in your vehicle, or maybe find out that it's going to cost a lot of money to keep it going. Then you can make an informed decision on what to do next.
sounds like a bad battery. have you tried to jump it? if it starts, go to a chain auto store like pepboys or auto zone they will check it for free. it might also be the starter. if you can access the starter, have someone tap on it with a broom stick or something similar while you try to start it. the starter is located on the rear part of the engine where the trans meets the engine. a cylindrical device with red colored, large wires connected to the back of it.
SORRY but I need a lot more information than what you have given me.
Where did the clanking come from under the car /from the engine/from gear box/back or front wheels/etc, and what is it doing now when wont start and just clicks ,,do the dash lights go out ,,
Turn on head lights and then turn the key to start (do the lights go outand clicking still there)
If so it sounds like the problem is in the converter
So let me know ASAP Ron
is the earth cable giving a good engine and body contact.does your starter have two terminals and if so are they the right way around?is the battery any good?Is the engine able to be turned over by hand Make sure you have agood 12v supply to the starter solenoid when cranking the engine An engine test probe/light would be of a lot of use for you to do that test
