2008 ford ranger clicking noise wont start battery 6yrs old


Most likely the battery is now dead. 6 years is about all you should expect on a factory battery. The clicking is the solenoid trying to engage the starter, but not having enough electricity to do it.

Battery clicking no start


You are right to suspect the battery if the weather is hot and the battery is a few years old. You probably have a dead cell and that will prevent you from jump-starting it.
It takes at least 10.5 volts to engage the starter.
You could disconnect the battery and charge it overnight then check the voltage, but I would lean toward a dead battery from old age and heat.
Make sure the connections on the posts are clean before you take the battery out. Could be some hidden corrosion.

Single click? More battery is needed. Id change the battery, or slow charge it.
Might also be the security system shutting down the starter. Common on GM vehicles. Heres a link on that. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

Clicking sound when trying to crank the car. Battery is only 6 months old.


A CLICKING SOUND USUALLY MEANS LOW VOLTAGE. COULD BE LOW BATTERY,OR BAD OR DIRTY CONNECTIONS AT THE BATTERY & OR STARTER. TRY JUMP STARTING WITH GOOD JUMPER CABLES " STRONG CLAMPS & #4 CABLE " . IF THAT WORKS THE BATTERY IS LOW IF IT STARTS CHECK VOLTAGE AT THE BATTERY WHILE RUNNING. VOLTAGE SHOULD READ BETWEEN 13.90 & 14.80. IF THAT IS OK , THE ALTERNATOR IS WORKING, CHECK THE BATTERY

Clicking starter=car not starting


Regardless of the battery age,sounds to me as if you have a drain on the electrical system First thing to do is completely recharge battery. An initial quick inspection might show a light staying on, whether it be a door , reading, glove box, or trunk lights, among many other things. If nothing is obvious an electical reading of the system while removing and reinstalling fuses will show the circuit causing the drain, Hope this helps

New battery car wont start


may just be a loose terminal. I had mine replaced and it took a few hours before it ran right again. something about the electronic modules take a little time to recharge.

Dead battery making a clicking sound


take the battery out of the veh and see if it will charge overnight on a charger, if not then the bat just ran its course I doubt it is 11 years old. Bats last anywhere from 3 to 5 years then they die if it does charge then your alternator needs to be replaced as it charges the battery when you drive, low voltage may cause the buzzing, tellin gyou there is a problem.

My 2005 nissan maxima did not want to start. all the lights inside the car came on and when i tried to start the car it had a tapping/clicking noise and it did not start.


sounds to me like your battery is dead. put cables on it and see if you can jump it off a different car, but it sound like your battery is dead.
