Hello, check battery, if it is good, you might have to replace the starter, long as the motor did not run out of oil, or over heated, and seized up, the clicking noise sounds like the starter cynloid, make sure the battery cables on the end is clean, where you hook up to battery, check battery terminals make sure they are clean too.

If it makes a rapid clicking sound when you turn the key, then the battery does not have enough power to turn the starter, fit new battery, after fitting battery start car and check alternator is charging properly, let me know how it goes

Clicking noise wont start


Sounds like a weak solenoid on the starter. Probably needs starter replacement. Those cars need a mechanic to work on them.

My 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited has a new battery but won't start. When I try to jump start it, it just makes a clicking sound but won't start.


Most likely you have a bad connection somewhere. Trace the battery cables and clean/tighten all terminals or try jumping to a different lug. You might also try removing the starter and jumping directly to the starter to verify that it is good.

Clicking sound but engine won't start


This actually does sound like the battery is low on charge. A battery which is quite low on charge will still light the headlights and run many other electrical accessories, but will not engage the starter (which requires much more power than other accessories).
I would start by making sure that an electrical device, such as interior lights, glove box lights, trunk light or something else has not been left on. Then carefully jump start the engine. It is also possible that the battery might need to be replaced for not holding a charge.

Have 1990 audi 100,car won't turn over,have 12 volts,makes a click sound under back seat when I turn key


Sounds like a dead battery. Do the lights come on and radio work? Maybe the lights are dimmer than normal or the door is no longer dinging when opened. Also another way to tell when the battery is not getting any juice to the car.
You may be able to get the car started using jumper cables. I would take it to a parts store immediately and have them check it (almost always free).

One easy thing (which is free and a maintenance item) is to clean the battery terminals and cable terminals. These can get very corroded and actually cause the battery to stop charging when the car is running. They may just need a good cleaning and a jump. It might take care of it!

Probably not the starter, but also an outside chance (full disclosure).

Good luck!

When i turn the key on it makes a clicking sound


Hi there:It sure sounds like a dead or weak battery or problem with connections at battery or starter contacts. Check all connections and make sure there is no corrosion built up at battery terminals. Charge battery or try jumping.
If even dont work, check starter, starter solenoid or ignition switch.
Hope this helps.

Car will not start it makes a clicking sound it is not battery lights come on and key makes a dinging sound


CLICKING USUALLY MEANS LOW VOLTAGE. THE STARTER NEEDS A LOT MORE BATTERY THAN LIGHTS OR KEY CHIME. TRY CLEANING BATTERY TERMINALS & OR JUMP STARTING. THE JUMPER CABLES MUST BE GOOD HEAVY DUTY CABLES WITH STRONG CLAMPS. IF IT IS THE ORIGINAL BATTERY, IT IS PROBABLY BAD.
