Sounds like a dead battery issue. If someone can jump start you with battery cables connect red to red post on battery and black to your car frame or other ground. If the car starts easily it indicates a discharged battery. Then you need to determine why the battery is discharged. If you can drive to a local autoparts store they can use a machine to do a battery and charging system diagnosis at the curbside. Autozone, Advance, or Oreilly all do this. If the battery is the original from the car when purchased it is probably time to replace it. If its a new one (2 years or less) the culprit may be the alternator. The clicking noise is a dead give away that its a battery or alternator issue. The clicking by the way is the starter trying to engage and turn motor over to crank it. Its not getting enough power to turn the engine over (a tough task) and is clicking.

Cannot start loud fast clicking noise


Clicking noise would indicate starter solenoid faulty! This would also be the case if battery low but since you have a new battery you can look at the starter solenoid!

Alternator making noise had it checked out it passed the test got new battery other one was drained now dash lights get bright and dim really fast


The most common thing which fails in alternator and create noise is bearing failure. I think you should check for that once.

MY SATURN 2002 SL1 WILL NOT START. MY BATTERY IS FINE BECAUSE ALL LIGHTS AND RADIO WORKS BUT WHEN I TRY TO START IT, IT MAKES A CLICKING SOUND.


A quick check, is turn your headlights on, try to start, if lights dim almost to off, bad battery, if they don't dim, it's a bad starter assembly.

Make sure you have a good battery. Make sure the battery and clamps are clean and tight. If clicks, the starter or starter solenoid is acting up. I believe the clicking noise is coming from the starter? Good luck.
