SOURCE: Mazda RX8 starting problem
Check that your battery is fully charged. If it does not sustain a charge , replace it. Clean the cables and battery posts with baking soda and water mixture. About 1/4 cup to a pint. If it still does not turn with a fully chared battery, it is probably the starter that is bad. It will have to be replaced. One click usually means the starter is bad. Several clicks usually means the battery is bad.

this problem is caused by a defective starter soenoid, the heavy starter electrical contacts are burned/erroded, you can either replace the satater motor or replace the solenoid which is mounted on the starter.

Check the battery,have a load test done on the battery,and check the connections at the battery and the battery post,make sure they are shiny clean,then of course check the alternator,to make sure it is charging enough,13.65 volts to 14.25 volts,any less replace the alternator,If all this checks out good,replace the starter.

Testimonial: "Fixed the problem that no one else could even begin to guess what to do."
if the clicking sound comes from the solenoid when you try to start the engine the solenoid may need replacing, the solenoid is like a big switch that takes the power from the battery to the starter motor,inside it there contacts that come together to make contact & that is where the problem is.....hope this helps.....cheers
