My 2003 Denali won't start I turn the key and just get a fast clicking noise good battery new starter and all power works


Where's the clicking noise coming from ? Under the dash , under the hood in the engine compartment ? Do starter circuit voltage drop test ! When the key is in start position is there constant B+ voltage at the 10 amp crank fuse in the under hood fuse box ? This is an input to the PCM - engine computer to energize the starter relay ! Starter Voltage Drop The battery is good , starter is new ,what about the cables ? watch this video on testing starter circuit !

Whining humming noise under hood


If the engine is not reaching optimum operating temperature it will indeed give you a "check engine light",the code will lean you in that direction as well.The noise your hearing more than likely is coming from the "clutch fan",they are very common on the TrailBlazers to make noise and fail.The oil light... you certainly need to have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gage.

I have a periodic clicking noise while driving my 2009 MKS Lincoln. Anyone have this happen?


The most common cause of clicking (under the hood) while driving is an undercharged AC system. The sound is the compressor constantly turning on and shutting off. The problem could also be related to the temperature control panel which could constantly call for the compressor to turn on and off.

Clicking noise when i turn left


Sounds like constant velocity joints at the end of the drive shaft, the joints at the end of the drive shaft that allow the wheel to swivel, to turn. Only makes noise when turning left or right and is usually only from one side.

When my car is driving it makes a ticking noise and will not hold a charge to the battery


Get a multimeter and hold it on the battery contacts. With the power off, it should read around 11V. With the engine running, it should read around 13.5V.

If the power off voltage is under 11V, you need a new battery.
If the power on voltate is under 13V, you need an alternator.

Is the clicking noise at a constant rate, or is it related to the speed of the engine? In the latter case, it's probably a physical defect in the alternator. If it's more constant, it may be a wiring issue - there could be an arcing problem. That could be a problem within the alternator, or somewhere between the alternator and battery.

Before you mess with the alternator, UNPLUG the battery - it's very easy to short the main battery contact with the alternator housing, which is connected to ground/negative.

Clicking/ticking noise under the hood?


It's called a lifter. It is not serious. Keeping your car under good maintenance should keep the noise down but you will always hear it until you get the lifters replaced. Or that is what i was told. I have had my 1988 Fox for ten years now and it has always made that noise. Don't worry. :)
