Question about 2004 Chrysler Pacifica

1 Answer

Engine will not start. Single click heard when

The engine will not crank. Only a single click is heard when the ignition is engaged. The car otherwise has power (lights, blower motor, dash, etc.). The starter was replaced 500 miles ago when it had an identical issue. The starter solved the problem without issue for ~6 starts.

This problem relates to the solenoid and that should have been replaced with the starter. If it is a rebuilt starter the solenoid may have been faulty on it. Take it back.

My 2000 honda accord ex wont start,


Is it a single loud click when you try to start it? Or multiple clicks or "buzz"? If it is a single click heard from the engine, your starter has likely failed. Test the battery first, and inspect the battery cables/connections for any looseness/corrosion.

Turn key, click from engine compartment but starter does not engage


Hi Thomas,
First things first. Any time you have an automotive question please include the year, make, model and engine size of the vehicle in question. This will help give you the most accurate information I possible can.

To generically address your problem....

A single click every time you turn the key to the start position usually indicates a bad starter. There are a couple things you can check.

1. Make sure there is twelve volts on the large wire to the starter when you try to start.
2. Make sure you can turn the engine over by hand

If those two pan out than tap the starter with a small hammer while a helper holds the key in the crank position (be prepared for the vehicle to start!). If the starter cranks over replace it.

If its a single click and everything goes dead until you let go of the key and wait a couple of seconds, check the battery connections.

A series of rapid clicks when you hold the key in the crank position usually indicates a bad/weak battery.

Let me know if you have any further questions and I'll be happy to answer them. Thank you for using Fixya.com!

The first step is to narrow down the cause of the no-start.

The first step is to narrow down the cause of the no-start.

Let's go over the process of starting the car, so you have a better understanding of what is going on when you turn the key:

Here is what happens on a properly running car:

  • You sit behind the wheel and insert the ignition key into the switch.

  • You then turn the key to the spring loaded start position. When you do that, the ignition switch engages the starter by connecting the battery to the electric starter motor which, in turn cranks the engine over. This can be easily heard and is referred to as cranking the engine over.

  • The next thing you will hear is the engine running, which is your signal to release the key.

  • At that point, the engine is running and you are ready to place the transmission selector in Drive and be on your way.

Won't start. Replaced battery, checked fuses. A single click can be heard when trying to start.


Hello,
First check your battery connections. After that check all other connections on the starter and alternator to insure that you have a uninterrupted power feed. A loose connection can make this sound. If all connections are solid and free of corrosion then sounds to me like the bendix on your starter is stuck or otherwise not engaging the flywheel. When you turn the key on your ignition the bendix on the starter pops out and spins the flywheel turning the vehicle over. If you put a new battery in your vehicle and the connections are all good then you will need to replace your starter.

When you turn the key you hear a single click and you can not hear the starter cranking the engine over? After several attempts the starter finally cranks the engine over?

If so sounds like the starter is going bad.

When i turn my key all i hear is a click is that my starter?


A single click is the solenoid on the starter engaging. This is a pretty typical symptom of a bad starter if everything else seems normal.

Rapid repeated clicking while the key is in the crank position is a good sign the battery is to weak to turn the engine over.

Back to the single click. Try turning the key to the crank position rapidly and repeatedly. Sometimes this will make the starter work wich will also confirm that it is bad.

Car wont start single click


This is not the crank sensor if the starter will not engage,and turn the engine,clean the battery terminals real good and shiny,make sure the battery is good,do not assme,if this does not help,replace the starter,this is the most likely problem,the starter is clicking.

1998 Chrysler Concorde 3.2L Intermittent starting problem. Can hear the starter solenoid kick but will not turn over. The starter, battery and cables have been replaced. After replacing the battery today...


Thoroughly check the battery to chassis to engine ground system is properly connected and in good order.
Check/replace any solenoid control relay if fitted -(slave relay interfacing between ignition start sw and starter motor engage solenoid).
Check condition and connections of any fusible link (or in line Maxifuse).
