The clicking noise is most likely the starter silinoid engaging but not enough electricity to turn the engine. Unfortunately, when one of those 3 goes bad it causes the other 2 to have excessive wear on them and soon they go bad. Battery goes bad (wont hold a charge) the alternator is constantly running trying to charge the battery and from repeated starting attempts, the starter dies soon after. I one of the 3 goes out and the other 2 are not checked to make sure no damage has happened to them, they soon fail. Test all 3 to find out which one is bad now

Possibly have a bad fusible link.Yours wires at the starter ,one may be no good.Cut old lead and replace with new 14gauge wire. Be sure to disconnect the battery prior to any work on or around the starter

Just one click or a rapid clicking???? a bad connection could cause this, or if its one big click and nothing happens, the starter solenoid may be bad. have someone tap on the stater while you hold the key in the start position. if it then starts, replace the starter. Buy quality parts, NOT from AZ if thats where you get parts.

I installed a new alternator, batter, and starter in my 1997 Ford Expedition and my truck wont start unless you hit the starter. All the wires are good so what else is there to check?


Sounds like you still have a bad starter. You can get a bad one from the parts store. Go back and have them test it. Or could be cylinoid.

Battery is dead and wont start


Make sure the battery is fully charged before trying again. If the battery wont charge get a new one. Once installed use a multimeter to verify that the alternator is charging.

Sounds like you have a bad spot on the starter armateur...and will need to replace the starter.

If its the original, and you have over 50K miles then its probably a safe bet that your starter is bad, and will fail totally soon...if thats not the case now.

My car wont start I changed my water pump n now my car wont start


It is a good idea (recommended) to disconnect the battery when working on electrical components. If you disconnected the batter, make sure the battery cables are secure on the terminals (clean terminals if necessary) - apply a terminal grease to prevent corrosion and acid build up. Also, check the connection on the alternator - it's very possible this may have been disturbed or disconnected by accident during the installation of wires. Part of your message says "my car won't start, I changed my water..." did you change your water pump? There may be a crankshaft and/or camshaft sensor near the water pump. Make sure that these are plugged in and secure. Check your ignition fuse in the fuse box, the starter relay(under the hood) and the fusable link,next to or near the battery, or starter. Check all electrical connection that may prevent the vehicle from starting.

if it is whining when you try to start it , it's because the starter was not shimmed right when installed the bendix wheel in the starter is what catches the flywheel on the engine and spins it to start. there is a specific clearance for installation take it back and make them do it right under their labor warrenty
