If your battery is reading 8 then that is to low.It needs to be at 12. also if this is the same battery you had when you had the voltage draining problem i would strongly suggest changing it because it sounds like it has a weak cell.

A meter hooked to the battery or the meater in the dash board??? if it reads 8-10 when trying to start, either the battery is weak or the starter is drawing too many amps. Who tested the battery/ starter and where. it should be tested in the truck, not taken off to some parts store. have you verified good ground?

Battery is fully charged but car still wont start just starts making a clicking noise why am i getting that.


I suspect the battery isn't holding a charge. Load test the battery. Otherwise it could be the starter.

There's a rapid clicking noise when I try to start the car. Won't turn over.


It could be your battery , sometimes if your battery is not fully charged then it wont send enough current to the starter.To test this either use a battery charger or jumper cables coming from another vehicle and see if it starts.Otherwise it is your starter.
Tap on the starter sometimes this will dislodge the problem with the windings in it. If that still doesn't work then you will have to replace your starter.

Wont start


If your battery is fully charged it sounds like you have a starter issue. The solenoid is clicking but the starter motor is fried.

Honda Odessey,1999: will not start. all lights come on I hear one initial click but engine wont turn. It was an old battery so I got another one. no difference. I took the starter to the auto parts store...


If the starter turns "slower than normal" then the starter is not in proper working conditions and is drawing too many amps...why would you put a starter back in when you know it's not working properly? Check all your cables to and from the starter for corrision, check your grounds.
Check your starter relay... Take your battery in and have it "load tested" to determine the health of the battery. "Fully charged" does not mean it's a good battery.

My mini has a fully charged battery but wont turn over it wont jump start but will bump start help


If the battery is fully charged and it will not turn over but will start if you push it, they it is safe to assume the starter may be bad. But before removing the starter and having it tested make sure all the wiring at the starter is connected and not loose. Also check the connections at the battery and clean them throughly. Check the battery cables for swelling or or cuts. After you clean the battery connections and are sure all cables are good and connections are tight then remove the starter and take it to an auto parts store for testing.

Car wont startchevy blazer2001 v6 2 w drive, starter clicks but wont turn over, battery is fully charged. Not sure what is wrong had the starter tested and it tested just fine


If the starter is clicking then it has a problem. or maybe somewhere from the battery to the starter is losing power and not giving the starter full boost.

I would check the earth battery lead to the car body from the battery and from the battery to the starter, ensure all wires have a gopod contact, they can rust up and may look ok but still can cause this fault.

If still no joy then the celinoid must have gone on the starter, thats not the main part but the smaller barrel on top,

Car wont start


Fully charge battery remove and take to a shop, bench test the battery. If its not the battery remove the starter and bench test it, its either the battery or the starter.

01 kia optima stalled and wont start...starter just clicks


It seems the starter is playing up.First check if your battery is charged fully or try to jump start and see what happens.If the engine start then it's either you need a new battery or else you need a replacement alternator.Test using a voltmeter if the actual altenator is working.Finally the last option is the starter motor that needs changing or fixing...Hope this helps.

86 cutlass wont start with a fully charged battery it turns over really slow and drains the battery


Have your starter checked. Once it goes bad it drains your battery very quickly when trying to start vehicle.

Wont start help!


Recheck the charge on the battery,make sure it's fully charged.Check all connections at the battery and at the starter.Possibly a bad starter.If the starter is ruled out,then look at the teeth on the flexplate/flywheel.I would remove the starter and test it.
