Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

When I turn the car off the hideaway headlights open up and there is a constant click. This happens until the battery runs down. There is a clicking sound in the relay/fuse box under the hood. I am thinking this is the source of the problem. Thoughts?

Try swapping relays of the same kind first and if that works then replace the relay

    Thanks Larry. That's a simple test, but I just did not think to do that. Appreciate it.

How do I check for a short when battery cable is connected


The clicking noise from fuse box is probably a relay! Nothing happening could mean anything! Without turning the ignition can you turn on headlights, does the inside light come on when you open the door, horn work?

Clicking noise in driver's side window


Your master switch is stuck in the running position and need to be replaced. Very simple to do. The reason your battery is running down is the switch is constantly activated and draining the system. Once you replace the switch everything will be good

2008 equinox, turn key and it clicks but nothing happens, still have good headlights, acts like dirty cables of old days and suggestions


Suspect bad battery. The battery may produce enough current to operate most things (headlights, radio, locks etc) but not nearly enough to run the starter.

Car won't start. It turns over and clicks fast, but nothing. Dad says it may be the starter, but I don't know where the starter is to tap it to see. Can you help?


Right side, down under. You say it turns over? if it turns over, the starter is working. Turning over and cranking are the same thing. It either CRANKS or it DOES NOT CRANK. or it CRANKS but wont RUN. Explain things in these terms so theres no confusion.

2002 Impala, headlights work however they blink


This may be the start of a worse problem that the Impala eventually developes. The Body Control Module has a design flaw along with the Passlock anti-theft system. You may get away with just replacing the BCM for now. It needs to be reprogrammed at the dealer and the car will not start if you replace the BCM without reprogramming it. I would also recommend against replacing it with a remanufactured one. Repair cost is going to be around $500 at the dealer.

If the Passlock system is also at fault, add another $500 for a new ignition switch and cylinder. If you haven't experienced random starting problems yet, they are coming soon. When you turn the key, nothing happens. I thought my 2002 Impala may have been immune to these problems that I've heard about constantly, however, at 90,000 miles, it became "possessed". The symptoms started slowly and got worse. Beside the interior lights flashing like strobs in the middle of the night (while the car was not running), the headlights would occasionally click off and on a few times while I was driving at night.

The relay switch you hear clicking is the Battery Rundown Protection relay. I'm suprised your battery hasn't drained to the point where the car will not start in the morning.
