My 1997 cavalier won't start but when I turn the key on the on position and turn the steering wheel in makes the starter click ...iv tryed everything any suggestions?

sounds like a stuck bendix spring with the clicking , have you hit the starter quite hard with a heavy hammer a few times to release spring ? if its not the starter the i'd say the fault is with the ign switch as you say turning wheel makes the clicking sound , i'd take off steering cowlings and check for any loose , burnt etc wiring to/from ign switch hope this helps

2009 Chrysler T&C makes clicking sound but won't start

you dealer is not going to want to hear this,have them replace the starter,inside the starter are copper contacts it sounds like a bad adjustment on these contacts inside the starter.Just because it's new dosen't mean it can't be bad!

Clicking noise wont start

Sounds like a weak solenoid on the starter. Probably needs starter replacement. Those cars need a mechanic to work on them.

My 2011 buick regal cxl stalls over speed bumps,and makes a clicking sound when starting up sounds like its coming from passenger side under hood

Look for a loose bulkhead connector, or something near the alternater. This ride should still be under warranty, so let the dealership figure it out!

1990 plymouth acclaim wont start. you hear a clicking sound. put in a new battery, had the starter tested .starter was good but when you turn the key, you just hear a clicking that dosent sound like its...

Hi, what you hear is probably the starter relay which may have burned it's contacts. See if you can find it and swap it with a similar one. If the relay is good, the problem is the brown wire from the relay to the starter solenoid. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

MY 325I would not start - when the key was turned, it would just make a clicking noize. I tried t jump start but that din't help. I did crank and continue to crank for a few day but slow. today it...

This definetly sounds like a battery issue......the clicking is the starter motor receiving current but not enought to turn, and when it did crank, there was not enough voltage to provide power for the injection sytem........I would first be either charging or replacing the battery.......and seeing if it starts.......Then if it starts, I would be checking the charging system and all power devices, to make sure the new/recharged battery does not go flat........Good luck

Will not turn over. good batery and bright headlights and all the electical works. place the key in ignition and it dings. when you turn over you do not hear the silinoid clicking. what do you think?

With someone holding the key to the start position try tapping the starter motor with a hammer LIGHTLY. Make sure the vehicle is in PARK!!! It sounds as tho the starter is gone.

2002 buick regal starting problem

You are describing a low battery voltage problem, make sure the alternator is working correctly, at least 13.5 volts at idle, also try to charge the battery and have it tested, Kragen will do the tests for free is you can get the car down there.
