Your cables need to be on the battery when jump starting. Take your battery in and have it tested.
Check your cable ends need to be clean and good.
Put fully charged battery in your car tighten cables.
If battery is not fully charged or has a dead cell the starter will only click. Try that 1st then if it don't work let me know and I will take you to the next step.

Sounds like a flat battery, it will have enough power to kick in the starter solenoid [the clicking noise] but not enough to turn engine over. Best to fit a battery that you know is good into the vehicle. If the fault still persists the starter could be faulty. To check the starter bridge the main battery power terminal [30] on the starter solenoid and the smaller terminal [50] also on the solenoid [power from ignition switch]. The starter should turn. MAKE SURE VEHICLE IS IN NEUTRAL WHEN DOING THIS AND TAKE CARE NOT TO BRIDGE POWER CABLES TO STARTER HOUSING.

Just to clarify...has the battery been inserted the right way round on polarity.check the main 30 amp fuse if this has blow then it is probable that the polarity is back to front.

2000 Volvo s80 clicks but won't start


This procedure usually works:
·Check the battery cable connections:
Make sure the negative cable makes a good ground connection at the battery and (preferably) at the engine. Make sure the positive cable, makes a good connection at the battery and at the starter.

·Check the battery the simple way, like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.

·Check the starter and solenoid:
If the wiring looks ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter(10 volts minimum while cranking).
If the starter spins and no crank, the problem is most likely the Solenoid's pinion gear is stuck.
Have someone hit (not too hard) the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging a stuck pinion gear.
·Make a simple test of the alternator:
If you can, somehow get the engine running, measure the voltage at the battery. It should be at least 13.6 volts to properly charge the battery.

Car clicks but wont start


the alternator lamp will not go out until the engine runs..
the alt converts engine horse power to electric power,
no engine, no alt.
so that means the engine will not start, or better it wont crank
subzero C or Subzero F.,, -10F or -10C, vastly different temps.
???????
no crank, then jumper cable crank it with donor car running.
crank now,?
yes , then battery is bad,weak or just discharged.
no, then starter bad, or key line bad.
hot wire starter solenoid. cranks now, is bad key line
if not, bad starter.

did you wiggle the shifter at crank.
did you wiggle key. extra.
did you try crankiing in neutral using fresh start contacts.>... yah.

03 for explorer not starting turn the key have full power hear klicks from distribution block but no crank


The starter solenoid is mounted on the starter. Clicking from the distribution block must be the starter relay. Swap in another relay from the block into that socket to see if the relay is the problem.
