Could be battery . It needs a huge amount of charge to turn over the starter motor. It may work the headlights but be unable to turn the starter motor.
Suggest get battery tested at a battery seller to see if battery is really ok .
The click is most likely the solenoid on the starter motor clicking on.
You might be able to get someone to run jumper leads
Note +ve to + ve and negative to negative !
from their car while the engine is running and their car is not moving !
Wait 10 minutes
Then try to crank over your car engine .

I jump started a 4wd vehicle a month ago from my car and it took about 10 minutes to get enough charge in it to crank over the engine !

2004 Pacifica will not crank. Turn ignition and dash lights work but turning to start no starter engage. Hear relay click but no starter click. Could this be the key ignition tail piece broken?


Hi. If the click you hear when turning key to crank is from a relay start there. The fact you can hear the click means the ignition barrel is doing something and probably OK.

Turn key, can hear the relay click and a short buzzing sound and then-nothing. Radio works, lights work, bell rings, but starter does not turn. Starter has been replaced and was fine for a while. Now,...


Clean the battery post's and terminals and hot wires to starter and the ends of the ground wires. Try to jump start it if it starts it may be your battery or your starter is going bad.

Truck wont turn over hear a clicking sound


Assuming your battery is fully charged it sounds like a starter.

The click you are hearing is the solenoid switch on the starter (basically a relay). Turn the key on and off a few times while someone give the starter a good few wackes with a piece of wood or other hard object. When it starts to crank over hold the key in the start position until it starts....then drive to the parts store and buy a new starter.

Cheers,

Kevin

I have Manual Nissan Altima 1997. It does not crank.


If you can hear the starter solenoid click, when you turn the key to start, then check that the large positive wire going to the starter solenoid from the battery has a good contact at each end. If you don't hear the solenoid click, then check that the small wire going to the starter solenoid has a good contact and power.

Ignition switch? 1985 Nissan Pickup


I have the same truck I rebuilt, it, took 2 years. Its on car domain.com. heres the link.http://www.cardomain.com/id/Marine4x4

The problem is with the wire going to the starter, the relay telling the starter to work. it will get loose or caroded, check that first, it sounds like your problem. Good Luck!!
