Check the battery. 99% of the time it is just a weak or bad battery. It could be a bad connection...ie battery cable, solenoid connection, ground, etc., The clicking noise you hear is the solenoid engaging and disengaging due to not enough current to hold the contacts together.

1995 t-bird v8. Starter will not crank, clicking noise coming from possible relay behind right headlamp. Battery is good and lights are bright no dimming when key is turned


The Ford V-8 they use in both Crown Vic and T-Bird are good for losing the solenoid to the starter. Replace that first before looking for a new starter.

Clicking noise, but electric comes on


I'm guessing that you hear the clicking noise when you try to start it and it doesn't start? A repeated clicking noise is a good sign that the battery is to weak to turn the engine over. If you can get it to start with a jump start than you just confirmed the battery was dead.

What is causing the clicking noise when i try 2 start my car


If all you hear is a clicking noise when attempting to start your car it could be caused from a weak battery (from a battery failure or because the alternator failed to charge the battery) or a faulty starter.

Clicking noise behind dash when starting; tripometer resets to 0


the clicking sounds like the starter solenoid engaging & disengaging due to low voltage. Battery may have a short. Check voltage with engine off. Should be 12 volts. Engine running 14 volts.

Clicking noise when trying to start car,battery is ok, wont start


That Clicking is the Battery causing it not to Start. You need to Replace that Battery or at Least put a Charger on it for a Couple of hours to see if you can Salvage it for a While.
