That is a classic dead battery symptom. Lights and radio may still work, but not enough power to crank the engine over. Pull the battery out, bring it to a parts store for a free check of the charge and condition of the battery. If it is just a low charge, they can give it a quick charge there. If the battery is shot, you can pick up a new one and be good to go.

SOURCE: Turning the key just results in clicking noises.

Check your battery for proper charge/voltage. This may cause the starter to click. Try a jump start. Hopefully this helps

My 2007 tundra went dead. The ignition won't start


There are several possibilities ranging from a defective starter, to bad cable connections, to the onboard security system locking out the starter relay, or an aftermarket accessory interfering with the starter circuit, or a locked-up/damaged engine.

I have had vehicles towed into my shop for similar complaints when the only problem was that the customer was using a cheap duplicate key that they had made at the hardware store that did not have the required computer chip in it.

I have also had vehicles towed in where the customer had replaced the battery and did not have good cable connections or forgot to connect one of the wires that was supposed to to get hooked-up to the battery connector.

Then there are the questions: Are you getting any kind of "clicking" noises when turning the key or is it completely dead? If it is clicking, WHAT is clicking? Is it the starter motor itself that you hear or just the starter motor relay? Do you have battery power at the starter "S" terminal when turning the key? If not, is the transmission selector in "PARK"? Does the shift indicator on the dash indicate that the transmission range sensor is in "PARK"? (possible defective transmission range sensor) Are there any fault codes stored in ANY of the modules connected to your onboard computer network?

It is really hard to say without being able to see the truck.

Hello! If you have a multimeter and a little experience using it, here is a simple test...It sounds like there is a resistive connection to the starter motor...Set your meter to its lowest ohm scale (X1) as an example...touch both meter probes together and zero the meter...Place one probe on the Center of the - battery post and the other directly on bare metal of the starter motor...You must read zero ohms...If you do not read zero the negative battery lead is not making a clean and solid connection...Set the meter to read +12 volts DC...Take a reading across the battery terminals with key off...Then angle the meter so you can see it and turn the key to start...Record the reading...Send a comment with results.....Guru.....Saailer

Engine start problems


the problem could be the starter,battery, battery cables, or alternator. the clicking could most likely be the starter going bad if not bad already or the battery weak or bad battery cables, if you have good power to everything else radio headlamps and heater the i would start by replacing starterlet me know what you find.
