The starter will click like that when there isn't enough juice in the battery to turn the car over. Try jump-starting it, take the cables off the car right after it starts. Turn on the headlights right away. If the lights are dim or go dim after 5 minutes, then you need a new alternator. If the lights stay bright, drive it around for about 10 mins. Turn the car off and try to start it again. If it clicks again, you need a new battery. If it starts up, you're good to go - you must have just left something on and drained the battery.

The PATS security system would prevent the engine from cranking if the system does not "see" the right chip in your key. If the system is working correctly, the light should go off after you turn the key switch on.
You should have power on the small starter wire when the key switch is in the start position.

Car doesn't start, starter clicks


Hi Dave,

I see that you mentioned the starter clicks but will not start the car.

Check Battery connections, clean the contacts to be sure, also if still it does not start the car try a known good battery.

I hope this helps, have a nice day.

Starter clicks but wont roll the engine over


Most likely your battery is dead, the clicking usually indicates that. The battery may have the required voltage however, it may not have enough amps. Try giving it a jump start.

Starter clicks but will not start 90 ej22 mat


If the starter clicks only once each time you turn the key, you need a starter. If it clicks mutiple times without changing the position of the key, your battery is lacking sufficient power to start the car. Try jumping the car before buying a starter. also make sure the engine is not locked up.

Car just clicks when trying to start. All gauges


Battery. Does the car start. Usually when the gauges max out the battery has a dead cell. Try taking the battery cables off and cleaning the post/cables, then re-install the cables. Even the little acid can cause a battery to malfunction, also one of the terminals may not have a great connection. Clean those and see if it helps.

Once i try to start up the car is just clicks and clicks. engine won't start.


The clicking sounds like you're car's sparking but there's no fuel getting to it. Could be a dirty fuel filter, or bad fuel pump.

The car does't start


I dont no what model good car you have but the problem you have if the starter just clicks and dosent turn over the engine its Either BATTERY is 50% nogood or the starter motor is poling (shorting inside) or rhe starter bendix isent throughing out or the solenoid is shorting inside OR the engine is siezed up,,,,, But i dont think its the engine so start off with
Turn on headlights ,then turn the key to start Does your lights go out or dim (if yes) jump start from another car ,, if it starts GOOD then battery isent any good,,.
If not and the starter still just clicks or clunks then the starter is faulty BUT before taking it off turn the engine over by hand just a little and try the key again, if no go then take the starter off and away for testing
Let me know how you get on have a goodday Ron
Theres more to check so keep in touch..
