In some vehicles the clicking noises are because the solenoid is defective. If you remove it, have it checked at any reputable auto parts store. Good Luck!!

1st check cable connections, make sure there is no corrosion present and they are securely fastened. 2nd pull the battery out, bring to a parts store for a free check of it's condition. They can tell you if it's just a low charge (if so, have the alternator tested) or if the battery is ready to be replaced. A lot of power is required to crank the engine over, so although the lights may work, the clicking sound is a classic dead battery symptom. Let me know what you find, good luck.

How can I start my 2003 Honda odyssey van with a bad starter


Unless it is a manual transmission you can't start it unless you have a working starter motor, it is about a 1 hour job to replace the starter, a rebuilt starter is around $100.00 US at link 2003 HONDA ODYSSEY 3 5L V6 Starter Motor RockAuto

Accord seems to be draining power overnight. only a fast clicking sound when attempting to start. battery 6 months old.


hi, it seems you have a fault DISCHARGE OF BATTERY: make sure there is no lights left ON vehicle inside or out, if phone charger left ON the fast clicking is the starter motor solinoid triing to connect to the starter motor NOT ENOUGH CURRENT TO START ENGINE, sometimes the alternator can have a slight fault, water driping on the contacts on the alternator will flatten the battery, (this is a DIRECT CONNECTION TO THE STARTER MOTOR and BATTERY). naturally the clock, radio, alarm system, all these sytem reduce the battery but this is NOT THE FAULT. charge the battery again it may be just this once. gerry

When I attempt to start te car nothing turns. Have electrical power but the engine doesn't start doesn't even click. Is it my starter?


It can be many reasons but then you must check for the starter motor voltage from the solenoid switch. So if the key switches the starter, the solenoid should receive the voltage , switch on and then supply voltage to the starter.
So if no power to solenoid, check the key switch.
If power comes ot solenoid but no output to starter, then change solenoid switch
However if voltage comes to starter but does not turn then starter coils, brushes are faulty. repair or replace.
Hope this advice helps, credit if helpful.

Car will not start, put a replacement starter on that had been re-built on Monday, on Wednesday the car did the same thing. The lights, electric windows, radio etc will paly but car will not tun over. Can...


Do you hear a fairly loud 'click' when you try to start? That should be the solenoid for the starter that is trying to work. You need a test light or voltmeter to check what is happening to the starter itself. When the solenoid clicks, it is pulling a very heavy electrical contact closed which applies 12 volt power to the starter motor. Check the large terminal on the solenoid that has the + battery cable attached--the test light should light before and during any attempt to start (the meter should indicate 12 volts). If the light goes out during the start attempt, clean the battery terminals and check the condition of both cables. If still no start, test the starter side terminal of the solenoid--the light should come on only when start is attempted. If it does, the starter is bad. If you get no light at all, the solenoid is bad. If the battery negative cable is connected to the car body, check for a broken or loose cable that runs from the car body over to the engine. Hope this helps!

Intermitent fault on starting 1.8Td escort van


Starter motor relay! - not sure which one it is - definitely sounds like starter relay tho.
if you disconnect the main wire from the starter and turn the key you will kear the relay clicking, find it and replace it... should solve your problem.

F250 Van won't start, starter doesn't engage just


The problem you describe is consistant with a faulty starter selenoid. You can check the selenoid by attempting to jump power from the incoming hot selenoid connection to the hot that goes from the selenoid to the starter. Do this with the switch in the "on" postion. If the starter then works, replace the selenoid. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!
