Chances are it's the battery - especially if it's more than two years old. The starter draws a LOT more power than the lights and accessories, and batteries often give no warning before they die. Pull the cables off the battery (remove the negative first and reconnect it last), clean the terminals real good with a wire brush, reconnect the cables, and then try to jump start the car. If that works, drive it for at least ten minutes, and then shut it off and try to restart it. If it turns right over the problem was corrosion on the terminals. If not, you are likely in the market for a new battery.

Oldsmobile alero 2001 making clicking noise wont stop


There can be a LOT of reasons for this. I assume you've been all through the car and found no loose objects, so the next best suspects are loose mechanical or electrical connections. If the noise is deep inside the dashboard, or under the car, you can TRY to locate and fix it, but should probably go to the dealer. If the noise is from the engine area, maybe it's an ignition wire arc-ing out (does the motor idle any rougher than it used to?). You can check by pulling into a garage or other dark place, opening the hood, and looking for a spark-light that makes the click. A handy person can fix this by installing a new wire set, maybe $50 or less. As long as THAT's happening, you might as well change the plugs, distributor, rotor and any other ignition bits requiring regular maintenance.

May be ab bad starter solenoid, or corroded/loose connection at starter, or (ground). Could also be a bad ignition switch. Start from the load; the starter. Test for 12V at starter, OK. Connect short wire from starter and touch sylenoid connection..

Listen for a click from under the steering column when you turn the key on. If you hear no electrical click then your ignition switch could be bad. If you hear an electrical click the you starter soleniod is bad.
