THE BATTERY IS DEAD, THAT IS WHY THE RADID CLICKING NOISE, THE ALTERNATOR IS NOT CHARGING THE BATTERY OR THE BATTERY IS DEFECTIVE, BOTH CAN CAUSE THIS PROBLEM, HAVE BOTH TESTED, NORMAL ALTERNATOR SYSTEM VOLTAGE IS ABOUT 13.8-14.2 VOLTS

If it is clicking then check and make sure the battery is good.Check and make sure all the connections on the battery are clean and not corroded.If they are corroded or have a build up then clean them.Try jumping the vehicle.If it starts then have your battery and charging system load tested.If it still won`t start then try tapping the starter with a hammer while someone is turning the key to start position.If it turns over but does not start then you will have to check and see if you are loosing fuel or spark.Hope this helps.Good luck.Let me know if you need more help.

If the tire started coming apart it could have hit the brake dust cover and bent it.

Both fuel relay fuses making clicking noises under hood in 2001 dodge 2500 v8


the clicking noises you are hearing are the relays powering up, that is normal. with somebody in truck try starting itw ith somebody under truck at the gas tank, take a rubberm allet and bang on the tank in the center of it while cranking, if it starts you need a fuel pump. make sure you have gas in tank the sending unit on the fuel pumps go bad all the time.

I have a 1990 Laser RS Turbo. Won't start, no spark at plugs but spark at coil. I hear a rapid clicking sound behind the radio on the passenger but all the time. When I try to start it it just turns...


normally a quick clicking sound means that the battery is low in voltage and amperage,but first check your connectors and the battery posts to make sure they are clean and secure. if you have a tester,check for voltage at the battery,you should be getting 12 volts or more.if you have 12 volts+,turn on the headlights and test the battery to see if it is retaining 12 volts or not,this is known as a load test. if voltage falls rapidly your battery should be changed.if it holds charge pretty well,than put thr battery on slow charge overnight and retry starting the vehicule.nb. the clicking noise is caused by the onboard computer that reads the voltage before startup and under 11.5 volts your car will make this sound.if your car starts put the tester on the battery again and check voltage,it should be 13volts or higher which means your alternator is charging the battery.

Won;t start makes rapid clicking noise


Sounds to be a loose battery terminal or battery wire lead. Verify that the headlights are bright when turned on if so battery is not dead.
