It may not be the starter just the soliniond but if it is clciking it means there is power tothe starter but it's not turning over. the soliniond on the starter has a disk inside it at one end the disk wears out, or gets burnt but can be pulled off and reversed andthe contacts can be filed on the disk and resued. So it's up to you. It could also be that the starter bolts are loose or the ground or positive cable is dirty and needs to be cleaned. try this first.

2007 chevy cobalt ls won't start battery good starter good turn key nothing no click nothing all lites work on dash and radio works jumped starter with screwdriver turns. Over but won't start...

Ignition relay or fuse could be the problem. When you turn the key to start do you hear a fuel pump kicking on and or do you have spark when you hot wire the starter (I know it's hard to check while trying to start it)? You can email me back and I might be able to pinpoint it more.

hello ase tech here. so your starter clicks when you try to start the car correct. the first thing i would check would be the ground at the battery is it tight. next i would check to see if you can hand turn the motor over, by attacting a socket that fits the crank bolt and turn by hand if ok i would take the starter back where you bought it and request a new one.

The headlights,radio,heater fan work but when I try to start the engine every thing goes off ,there is no click or starter sound. I cannot find the solenoid. HELP!

have you looked at the starter it or battery level, check the volts on the battery first, then have somebody give you a jump start, if it starts then you could have a loose cable wire on the battery or the terminals are dirty, if the volts are 12.5 or above and you also try to jump start it and nothing happens it is most likely that you have a bad starter

The car does not start, there is a clicking sound but it does not turn, from time to time it does but can get it to turn am a student unable to pay some one to do it for me.

clicking is caused by the starter solenoid trying to engage. most likely you have a dead battery. try charging or jump starting.

My 1996 chevy blazor is having issues starting the battery was replace a month ago and when you go to jump start it the clicking over dosent start....

Sounds like the starter solenoid is going bad. Unfortunately it is part of the starter assembly on most GM vehicles. To replace it you have to remove the starter. Sometimes it is more cost effective just to replace the entire starter at this point anyway. Before you do this though, be sure to check all of your connections both on the battery and the starter to be sure they are tight and corrosion free.

How do headlight shine? (hard to tell in sunshine)

How does horn sound? Weak battery usually means a sick horn.

Can you jump start the vehicle? If so, then it is the battery/alternator, drive it to a auto parts store, most will check out the system for free.

If not the battery, and you here a clicking noise from around the starter area, likely is the starter or the solenoid for the starter.
