Most of the time when there is a clicking sound when turning, it is the shaft if the car is a front wheel drive.

Have your window wind down and try to concentrate to know which side of your front wheels the sound is coming from.

Good luck.

If it doesn't start but clicks...the battery is shot... have it checked at your dealer or local auto parts store. Auto Parts stores usually do it for free!

Hi!!

The clicking you are hearing, is the sound of a weak battery, Jump start the vehicle and take it to an AutoZone for a Charging System check.

1999 Dodge intrepid tries to turn over but won't/can't. Everything turns on electronically that's supposed to, brand new battery.


clicking sound heard? starts fast then slows down as you crank over engine?ok try this --at the starter there is an electrical connection -- B+red wire and a smaller wire make sure these connections are tight. if ok proceed to next step--if you hear a low clicking sound when you turn the key and when trying to jump start the car still hear a click sound have someone tap on starter while you try to start it --- if car starts the starter solenoid is bad,anything more please write me back, Lee Davidian
