Look at the ignition module or the computer. Taking off the battery cable resets the electronics. Have a diagnostic done on it to pinpoint the problem.

I have put 5 starters on my car.They work good for 2 or 3 wks. then it's back to the click, click until it cranks.Any suggestions?


Sounds like your loosing power to the starter motor (big wire at starter), the small wire is good cause you hear it clicking, that's the solenoid, next time it clicks, need to check voltage at big wire on starter with test light, while some one holds key to start, if you loose voltage, check wire at both ends, battery and at starter.

2001 Aztek....won't start. When trying to start,


A rapid clicking noise in a GM starter is a sign of insufficient power going to the battery. Make sure all your connections have bare, shiny metal to metal contact. Do a "load test" on the battery. It may show enough power on a voltmeter only to fail when it is forced to produce it. On a load test it shouldn't drop below 10.5 -12 volts and it should bounce back to near 14 when the load is off. Check the ground strap between the engine and body and the ground at the battery.
If everything is good I would replace the power cable from the battery to the starter. I've had a few of them that looked good but the car wouldn't start until I replaced the cable. Hope this helps.

2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse won't start. Came home from work parked the car no problems at all. Few hours later went out to leave and it won't start. Just out of the blue. I was able to jump start it. No...


Battery is dead... get a volt meter, jump the car and with the car running on its own power check the voltage, anything less than 12v could point to an alternator but a new battery is a better place to start. put it to you this way if the car shuts off while driving, then its your alt, and if its fine wen drivin but wont start back up... its all battery

New starter new battery still wont start last


Very likely the new battery is defective - it happens. If you have a know good new battery, then also connect a jumper from the battery negative to the block just to be sure its not a defective or loose ground cable.

Engine start problems


the problem could be the starter,battery, battery cables, or alternator. the clicking could most likely be the starter going bad if not bad already or the battery weak or bad battery cables, if you have good power to everything else radio headlamps and heater the i would start by replacing starterlet me know what you find.
