One thing to check is your battery post connections, or any damage to the cables themselves. Check that the ground wire from the battery is connected well to whatever it is bolted to. Even with a good battery a poor connection will do what you are describing. Clean them good and have them bolted on properly. If that is not it, then get the starter changed....banging on it is not always going to get it to work....I do suspect it is a current delivery problem or the starter itself.

SOURCE: clicking noise when trying to start car,battery is ok, wont start

That Clicking is the Battery causing it not to Start. You need to Replace that Battery or at Least put a Charger on it for a Couple of hours to see if you can Salvage it for a While.

I have a 98 Saturn SL1 from time to time it would not start, it wouldn't even try. I knew the battery was good. It turned out to be the cranshaft position sensor.

SOURCE: 2000 chevy cavalier wont turn over, lights and radio work

The starter motor on a car takes a lot of energy, you may be able to use the radio but not have enough power for the starter. You also might not be able to start it because the motor's starter or it's relay is bad. So here's what to do:

Check the connections on the battery, try loosening the connections and moving them around a bit, then tighten them down good.

Next go try to start it up again. If it still doesn't respond, turn your headlights on and see if they are still bright. If they are, then I would look into the starter or the starter relay.

The relay is in a box somewhere under your hood, possibly with some motor related fuses. Take the cover off and look at the under side of it. The cover should have a sticker displaying which relays do what. Now look for the air conditioner relay. Check to see if the air conditioner and starter relays have the same number printed or stamped on them. ONLY if the numbers mach, put the air conditioner relay in place of the starter relay, and try to start it again.

If you still get nothing, then it is either a bad starter or wire somewhere. On this car it may be a bit difficult to find and reach, but try to get to the starter on the bottom of the car. You can find pictures online of what it looks like if you are not sure. Play with the wires and knock on the starter with something hard like a rock or hammer. It doesn't take too much to do it, even a firm punch can do it, just don't break it. If this works then the starter is bad and needs serviced or replaced.

If there is still no response after this, there is nothing more you can do unless you are capable of taking things apart and checking the wiring. Good luck!

Car won't start without being charged and when it sits overnight it wont start. makes a clicking noise when trying to start it


Battery is to weak & not holding charge. If the battery does not have enough power the starter will make a fast clicking sound or you will just hear one click.
