Have the battery tested and if its ok,, then the starter is most likely bad. OR If you have a meter check for 12 plus volts at the battery. Then while cranking watch the voltage and if its falls quickly below 9 volts then the battery is bad. If it stays up while clicking,, above 9.6v then you are looking at the stater as being the cause.

Merc e320 1997 model,W210 engine wont start. Please help


If you hear a click while turning the key this would indicate low charge in battery any reading under 12 on a tester would have trouble starting other than that loose battery leads have you tried jumping if it starts with a jump this would indicate battery.

Car wont start, Not the Battery..Just Charged it(Checked at AutoZone)


If you are hearing a clicking sound but the engine is not cranking you may have a bad connection on one or both of your battery cables. If your cables check out good then your starter may need replacing.

1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee cranks well but will not start. I hear nothing when I first turn key on.


You hear nothing? It cranks well? I'm not sure if I understand what you are "listening" for. Do you hear the starter cranking the engine? If so, why are you expecting clicks?

Car wont turn over so i think it might be a problem with the fuel tank and dont you supposed to here it make noise when you try to start your car


You say it won't turn over. Then your problem is with the battery, ignition switch, or starter. If you hear a click, click, click, then the battery is dead. If you hear nothing then it may be a bad ignition switch. Turn on the headlights and then attempt to start the engine. If you hear a click, the lights dim, and it will not turn over, the starter is suspect. Check the voltage at the battery with a voltmeter set to DC voltage on the 20 volt scale. These are the readings you look for. clay58_38.png If your battery is not reading at least 12.2 volts it needs charging or replacement. If the battery is over 3 years old, it more than likely needs replacing. Now if I am missing what you are saying and the engine does turn over but will not start then turn on the ignition without trying to start the engine. You should hear the fuel pump run for a few seconds and then shut down. If you do not, then the fuse may be blown or the fuel pump relay may be defective. The fuel pump itself may also be bad. You may have to open the fuel filler door and remove the cap and listen at that location while someone else turns on the ignition in order to hear the pump running.

98 Corolla will not start. Turn the key and I hear one click from the lower front of the engine. Not a series of clicks but one click. Is it the solenoid?


sounds like your starter has given all it got, and yea it is under intake manifold between engine and firewall. something to take in countn: check battery state of charge, spin engine by hand to make sure nothing is locked. this litlle engines like to burn oil and see so many run out off oil and engine locks. good luck

Turn key to start and hear a click, but engine will not turn over.


If you hear a series of clicks the battery is low. If you only hear one click it is an indication that the starter is bad.

The dodge caravan will not start one out of 6 times. them you try again and it starts. l checked the battery and the starter. what could it be? lt seems to have power and then none and then it will start...


when you turn the key and it doesn't start can you hear the starter turn the engine over or do you just hear a single click and the engine is not turning over. If you hear the click and the engine does not turn over a new starter will usually take care of it.

Turn key 4x to build pressure, on 4th try complete Start seq.


is the engine actually cranking when it doesnt start or do you hear just one "click" each time you turn the key? if the engine is cranking, i would suspect a fuel problem, possibly fuel filter if it wasnt changed when the fuel pump was done. if it is not cranking and you hear one "click" upon turning the key, i would suspect faulty starter or connection problem.
