The solenoid makes the clicking noises on the starter. If the battery connections are clean and tight and still have that clicking noise you need a new starter solenoid

Will not start starter makes click-click-click noises, battery fine, starter fine , starter relay fine, battery connections and starter connections are clean and still keep doing click-click-click noises...

We'd need to know more about how you have assessed these components, but something in that chain is still faulty. The symptoms you describe are classic, the sound of the starter solenoid pulling in, and arise almost always from

- a dying battery which cannot hold a full charge, but which can still pull in the starter solenoid, run the radio etc, but not crank the motor
- worn starter solenoid main contacts which cannot close the supply circuit from battery to starter motor
- a dead segment in the starter motor armature which is preventing it from rotating
- a bad ground, usually between motor body and chassis

You have mentioned all these things I know, but that click-click is a first step which still points the same way..

One way to narrow it is to try jump starting your motor from a known good battery or another car with running motor, taking precautions to avoid frying your electronics. If it starts, it is a bad battery you have. If it just clicks, then one of the other causes.

2006 tundra clicking problem when trying to start engine

There could be on of two causes to this problem. It could be your starter motor switch is sticky and refuses to kick fully, thus causing the clicking sound. OR It could be a fielding starter motor armature that is causing this clicking sound. Is the battery power draining out? Either way I think you should get the starter motor reconditioned or better still get a new one. Good Luck!

1999 Toyota solara is making making a clicking sound before I start in the morning, after 3 clicks it starts, I already know the fuel/air sensor needs to be replaced but would this cause the car not to...

It could be the starter solenoid clicking if the noise comes while holding the key in the Start position. It can also be the starter relay. Here's a thread on a similar problem:

I have a ford taurus... that seems to be making a clicking sound when trying to start it... and it wont start? does anyone know what the problem might be?

This problem is caused by a defective starter solenoid, the solenoid is mounted to the top of the starter motor. Generally the best thing to do is just replace the starter with a rebuilt part.

2000 Plymouth Breeze. Car would crank slow a couple of times then start. Replaced battery but still did it. Drove it tonight and when I tried to start it later, it now won't even turn. Is it starter or...

possibly your alternator. if you have a multimeter set it to volts dc and, without the car running, set the probes on the battery. then start the car and repeat the process. the multimeter reading should jump if the alternators good. you will need to charge the battery beforehand it sounds like, do not jump it. if all else fails disconnect a jumper lead befor starting to ensure nothing electrical gets damaged.

Car does not start sometimes...goes click, click, and then eventually starts. put new batteries, still the same issue. what is the issue? starter, starter solenoid, or something else?

What it sounds like is a starter issue. When the gears inside the housing bind up,it causes that clicking sound.Remove the starter and have it tested.

this click sound is a defective starter solenoid main electrical contacts, don't be fooled by a starter test, this problem can only be caused by the contacts, replace the starter solenoid.

Engine will not start

That Clicking Sound is Coming from the Starter. First check the Starter Relay. It should be in a Fuse Relay Box under the Hood. If this is good, The Problem will be the Starter and will need to be Replaced. Also Check the Tension on the Belt. If the Belt is even a little loose it will not allow the Alternator to Charge the Battery and will cause a Not Start. Let me know what you find out. Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help I can get! Thanks!
