My 2004 Saturn l300 will not start after engine is hot


Does the engine turn over and not start or does it just click or make no noise at all.

Won't turnover occasional click


suspect battery problems. THe positive terminal developes a hard black coating inside the lead terminal and around the battery post Remove this using rough sand papaer to a shiny finish on both units . Repeat the operation on the negative terminal. Try the starter again. If still nothing turn on the head lights try again noticing if the head lights go dim. IF they do check if the battery is charged OK then you have a problem in the starter motor IF it works some times and not at others you probably have a dead bar on the communator which means a replacement s-motor

My 2005 nissan altima won't crank or turnover. It justs makes this clicking noise. Can you help me?


The click is most likely the starter solenoid you hear

Should be a familiar sound you've heard may times
on other cars

I would guess you know how old the battery is?

If it is original,it is 8 years old & dead,if so, replace it

If it is only 3 years old ,check the voltage with a meter

Next the solenoid could be working as you hear it,but
it's contacts are burnt,it can be replaced

You remove the starter & change the solenoid

Don't want to do that, buy the entire starter at auto parts,
not a dealer,cost too much to even be there for any reason.

I have a 1997 GMC Sierra was running fine got it home sat over night now when I try to turn it over I get a ticktock click noise almost like a turnsignal noise and all the dash lights are on blinking...


If you are able to turn on your car, you have to take it in and have the valves checked. This is having a mechanic to check the pressure and the timing before you feel that your car's engine has been BLOWN. This can be easily solved with out having to have a complete over haul or a engine rebuilt. You have to have a process of elimination before you junk your car or pay for a complete engine. Please if this helped you give me the credit for the correct answer.

I have 2006 Nissan Altima. The engine will not start or turnover, there is also a clicking sound that is coming from the black wiring box, which is located under the hood by front passenger side...


What size engine ? The clicking you hear is probably the starter relay , provided you hear the click while turning the key to the start position . That black box is the fuse / relay junction box. Testing the starter electrical circuits with a volt meter is the way to find the problem . Voltage drop testing . Free wiring diagrams here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. Year , make , model and engine size . Under system click on engine then under subsystem click on starting . Click the search button then the blue link.Does your vehicle have a manual or automatic transmission ? First blue link for a manual transmission ,the second link for a automatic transmission .

Theres a click and then my motor shuts off


When you turn the ignition, you only get clicking? The key being turned only gives a click noise, no engine turnover? If so, it could be a few things, but the best idea is that it is the Starter. Or, it could be out of gas, but I would think it's the starter. You should bring it in for service.

Thanks and good luck!

Clicking noise behind dash when starting; tripometer resets to 0


the clicking sounds like the starter solenoid engaging & disengaging due to low voltage. Battery may have a short. Check voltage with engine off. Should be 12 volts. Engine running 14 volts.
