Not the battery when you hear this....almost always is the starter.

Check your connections for the battery for corrosion/acid build-up...then check the connections to the starter....lastly...change the starter.

Did you also change the starter solenoid when you changed the starter? That is a possible cause.

Can you turn the engine over by hand from the crankshaft pulley to make sure the engine is not frozen or blocked? You will need a large socket to do that, but if you can't turn the engine over by hand, the starter won't be able to turn the flywheel either. The one click is probably the solenoid firing the starter piston to the flywheel but then nothing makes me think the engine is frozen in some way.

But if the starter and solenoid and battery is trying to turn a frozen flywheel, you should notice some drawdown of light intensity. Do you notice any change?

If the starter is just clicking,then it is not,but if the starter is kicking the starter drive out,and that is the noise you are hearing then it might be,turn the crank pulley with a socket and ratchet ,clock wise,if it turns then this is not the problem,make sure the ground to the engine is good,if the ground cable has gone bad,this will happen.

1994 Lexus no turn no start


Ok, I am sure all terminals are ok as you have just changed the parts but is the battery charged? I have had many new batteries that are below and require a quick charge.

If ok and the correct amps check the starter relay, it could well be the clicking noise.. if the clicking is coming from the starter and the battery is ok then a common error on Toyota starters is to be supplied with the wrong one. I.e some have 9 teeth & some have 10 etc but use the same outer body. If fitted the starter jams and the solenoid just clicks.

Hope this helps

Clicking noise when car starts


The clicking noise is from the solenoid. If the battery is weak, then there is not enough current to make the starter turn. Therefore it is not necessary the starter is a problem. One of my experience is that the contact inside the solenoid can be rusty, corroded so there is not enough current flowing to the starter to make it work. The easy way to find out is to charge up the battery, or to have a jump start to see if the starter turns. If it turns then the problem with the battery. If with a new battery and still needing a jump start then the problem is the solenoid contacts, hence the solenoid needs to be replaced.

You still have a poor connection between the battery and the starter. Or a defective battery. (the headlights, if turned on will nearly go out when the key is turned to start)
