If the clicking is from the starter motor area then its prob a power supply issue. the vehicle battery may have a full12-13volts but it depends what happens when under load... connect a multi meter to the battery terminals and turn the key to start, if the voltage drops below 10volts, then the battery is stuffed. batterys can show 12 volts when no load is applied but can go down to nothing when under load.
does the vehicle have an after market immobiliser/alarm? if it does make sure it is dis-arming.

Testimonial: "I would like to thank every1 for your answers it turn out to be the battery wasn't powerful enough and the ignition wire had been spliced for the alarm which was on the car already when I brought it. the pajero is going now with new battery and button push start. once again thanks for the help."

The Batt does not have a full charge or it is the wrong cranking AMP's for the car... find out if it is the right Batt and also that it is put on a "slow charge" over night or at least 6 hr's

You don't need the part number as it depends on the maker of the starter motor.

    91 Mitsubishi Pajero, wont start get power to the power solenoid when turnig the key. What would be causing this problem?

    Check the start fuse first. Then try to start it neutral, not park. It could be the fuse, the safety neutral switch, or the ignition switch. My guess would be the neutral saftey switch.

    My 92 nissan primera wont start lights work on dash board turn key on wont start

    turn headlight on - either with another person or facing a wall.
    try starting. If lights dim it is a bad battery ot connection to the battery.
    If not it is in ur starter ckt - relay, starter motor, starter solinoid.

    My 2006 buick lacrosse wont start radio and lights work but its not saying nothing when i try to crank it

    Hello! Do you hear a click when the key is turned?...If no click is heard either the ignition key, the Crank relay, the starter, or the battery are suspect...Having lights and radio does not mean the battery is capable of running a starter motor......Put a meter on the battery...should read 12.5 volts...Turn key...Does voltage drop to 8 or 9 volts? Bad battery...If all is well with battery and connections to it...Check the starter fuse # 33 in the under hood fuse/relay box...If the fuse is good that click you should hear is from the Crank Relay in that box...If all of the above is OK connect your meter to the Purple wire that is connected to the starter motor...When the key is turned 12 volts must be on that wire...If there is the starter motor is defective...So, #1...Do you hear a click when key is turned...That would point at a bad starter or weak battery...#2...If you do not hear a click bad fuse #33, bad Crank Relay, bad ignition switch...#3...If fuse is good Bad Crank Relay or Ignition switch; Crank Relay is a low cost item ($10)...Replace Relay...Stop there and send a comment as to results...Guru...saailer

    87 Subaru GL wagon. Clicks when key is turned.

    It def sounds like a starter prob, if you have replaced the wires its more than likely the starter motor itself, also check the battery voltage

    2002 gmc 1500 sierra starter clicks but wont turn over. Have checked fuses, charged battery, tried jump starting all it does is you can here solinoid click but starter wont turn. I did turn heater fan on...

    Replace the starter, the solenoid cant engage the starter because it is locked up, hence the extreme voltage drop with the fan when you try to start it with the fan on.

    1987 Mitsubishi Pajero 2.5 turbo diesel not starting

    Hi, there is a little cable that in on the starter motor, probably you have just disconnect it, it happens to my pajero lot of times. look around the starter motor for a cable that is not going somewhere and then locate the little connector on the top and rear part of the starting motor. if this is not the case then try another battery, pretty sure one of the two is the problem.

    I have a ford focus wagon i cannot get it to start .. it has a good battery and the alt. is working great ... when i try to turn it over it just clicks starter is also good along w/applicable fuses ... I...

    if your car will start with a jump but not on the key im assuming the battery has been drop tested and is ok then you must have a voltage drop problem between the battery and starter motor or a faulty starter motor other things to check are loose and corroded connections
