Check to see of your headlight will come on full bright. Then blow the horn. This test will check the battery which is probably dead. Try jumping it off and take it to a battery store. BE CAREFUL and DO NOT reverse the connections.

SOURCE: Starter won't engage - won't start.

2nd click could be fuel pump engaging...what about the fuses under the hood... is there gas getting to the engine?? is there a safety shut off switch that needs resetting? have you checked the ground wire?

SOURCE: 1997 Neon Starter Solenoid Engages,,BUT

ase mechanic here, sounds like the starter is on its way out, will have to replace since you cleaned all the connections, but in the mean time try hitting the solenoid portion with some object and see if the engine starts. if so the starter needs replacing.

A solenoid needs so much power to kick in.  I think your battery is getting old and not at full capacity.  Hove it check and replace if needed.

SOURCE: 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee - will not start - starter

I also have a 98 Jeep Cherokee with the same problem. I know I probably need to replace the starter eventually but as of now I turn it to accessory only, pop it in neutral, then start it and it works every time when it wouldn't even try to turn over with it in park. Don't know why it works, but it does. Give it a try.

2002 fleetwood blunder 39z coach has been stored for 4yr problems starting no power to solenoid help


If the vehicle has not been run in 4 years, the battery is dead. Most newer cars with computers, power door locks, security systems and all kinds of electrically operated functions use battery power when they a just sitting. If the battery was exposed to below freezing temperatures when it was not charged, it may need to be replaced.

2002 Suburban clicks when trying to start.


Yes it could be your starter the fact that you hear the click tells you that the starter solenoid is in fact working. Do check your connections for looseness or corrosion prior to starter replacement and fix as needed. Possibly has a dead spot on the starter that won't allow starter motor to turn even though the solenoid engages.

Mitsubishi galant 2002 - Will not start, even with jumper cables. When turned on just hear one click noise, never had any problems till today. Hook up a newer battery and same problem, cleaned the battery...


Check the starter. The clicking is caused by the starter solenoid engaging, but the starter not turning over. This will more than likely need to be replaced.

I think my starter solenoid is bad. When I try to start my truck it will turn over and then start clicking?


I think your battery is the more likely the problem. If the solenoid did not engage you would hear a high pitch whine with no click. The clicking is the solenoid trying to engage the starter gear but it only initially engages until the battery current drops causing it to oscillate. Turn on your dome light and see if it dims when you try to start it. If it does try to charge or jump the battery.

1990 fleetwood starting prob.turn key nothing i can hear fuel pump the relays click i can jump starter. but nothing changed starter it was on its way out checked all fuses cheked all fuse links cheked key...


I would check the ignition switch. With a test light, check the small wire going to the solenoid for power when someone turns the key to the starting position. If you aren't getting power to that terminal on the starter, the ignition switch is not sending power to the solenoid.

At times the cars engine will not turn over but all the electrical components work. has a new battery. and if you try again hours later it starts


Your starter solenoid is likely the cause of your intermittent starting problem.

The solenoid sometimes will develop an issue where it does not engage to allow current draw from the battery by the starter, which causes intermittent starting issues.

If you hear a "click", during the times that the engine will not turn over, this is the most likely culprit. Replacement of the starter will solve the issue.

Freelander unable to start at turn of key,


Does the starting solenoid engages? This is would sound like a deep clunk on your starter. When the solenoid engages it close the contact that energize the starter motor, but a worn contact on the solenoid would result in it engaging but not having enough current to turn the engine resulting in a clunking noise when you try to start.
The starter solenoid gets its 12 volt from a relay. This is referred to as the starter relay. If you try to crank, and you hear only a click but the starter do not turn, then the contacts on the relay maybe worn.
To sum it up, if you hear a loud clunk when it dont crank, its the starter solenoid. If you hear just a click but no crank, it could be the starter relay.

Starter starts...engine dosn't crank...starter dosn't stop.


Hi

An unusual one here !

Suspect the problem lies in the starter solenoid.

But most strange a for constant live feed with ignition off.

May possibly be more a relay problem ?

Good Luck

John.

P.S. Don´t forget to give me a rating please !

Clutch Adjustment the problem?


If the starter is good but does not engage then you may have a bad starter solenoid. This is a seperate component which send the electrical pulse to the starter. This is actually what you will hear click and not the starter itself.
