SOURCE: starter clicks rapidly, not cranking, no ignition

It almost sounds like you have a loose connection at the battery. If the connection is loose it can cause the starter to click as you have described. Also it could be the starter itself. If the starter is bad (locked up) it can make the clicking noise and not start the engine. If you can get to the starter, try to tap on it with a hammer while someone is trying to start the engine. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: car won't start and now makes a rapid ticking noise

all of this is result of low battery as all of you know but for the one who it wouldnt start and then killed your battery the rotary engine with its desing will flood after just a few attempts to start so most likley it was flooded and if your battery was already low than im sure you killed in a short amount of time

SOURCE: Aztek won't start

You will not get far with this without doing some testing. Check battery for 12v (lights draw far less than starter...,what appears as OK often is not) if battery is low, charge and load test it. Once verified as good you need to check that starter is getting voltage when key is turned to start.Check battery connections at both ends of main wires for clean/secure connections. Beyond that there are code tests and individual component tests outlined in most inexpensive manuals you can do with any decent digital volt/ohmeter (computer scan tool needed for code testing) Once started, use volt meter to check charging system.
Even if I was standing right there, I'd need to do testing...stuff costs way too much to guess your way through it. Good luck and feel free to ask if you have any specific questions.

SOURCE: 2002 Pontiac Aztek - AWD disable light and Anti Lock Light

AWD disabled from a sensor unit in rear differential that senses high temp. This thing is over $300. Whine is from fluid. Need to change fluid. This versatrack fluid is about $40 per bottle and you need 3 bottles. Thumping noise is from loose rear knuckle bushings. These are part of the entire rear knuckle assy. and you must replace complete knuckle.

Why does my 2001 Pontiac Aztek crank but not start?


If you have a security light on your vehicle will not crank over !
The vehicle theft deterrent (VTD) system functions are provided by the theft deterrent control module. The VTD system prevents vehicle operation if a valid (learned) transponder PASS-Key?®III (PK3) ignition key is not used to start the vehicle. The theft deterrent control module has an exciter that is part of the theft deterrent control module as an assembly. The PK3 key has a transponder embedded in the plastic head of the key. The exciter is an antenna which is made up of wire coils which surround the ignition lock cylinder. The PCM enables the engines starter and fuel delivery system when it receives a valid (learned) password from the theft deterrent control module via the class 2 serial data circuit.
You need to take it to the dealer !

Starter


A rapid clicking noise when you turn the key would be the starter solenoid trying to engage. The most common cause of this problem is a weak battery. Make sure your battery is fully charged, then try to start it. If this works get your charging system checked out first. Get a "load test" done on the battery. It may be starting to go. Also the alternator should be putting out 14.2-14.5V when the engine is running. If it's lower, the alternator is starting to wear out and needs to be overhauled. Make sure your battery cables are tight and the terminals are free of corrosion (green gunk).

If you need to go further, you only have to follow the positive (red) cable from the battery. It will go directly to the starter solenoid, which is on top of the starter. Hope this helps.

2001 Aztek....won't start. When trying to start,


A rapid clicking noise in a GM starter is a sign of insufficient power going to the battery. Make sure all your connections have bare, shiny metal to metal contact. Do a "load test" on the battery. It may show enough power on a voltmeter only to fail when it is forced to produce it. On a load test it shouldn't drop below 10.5 -12 volts and it should bounce back to near 14 when the load is off. Check the ground strap between the engine and body and the ground at the battery.
If everything is good I would replace the power cable from the battery to the starter. I've had a few of them that looked good but the car wouldn't start until I replaced the cable. Hope this helps.

2001 Pontiac Aztek STILL will not start.


If the car is clicking, it is most likely the starter engaging, but it doesnt have enough power to crank. Charge the battery or try getting a jump.
