This sounds like a really low battery. What happens is there is enough power to fire off the solenoid, but then not enough to run starter motor....voltage drops, solenoid disengauges....voltage then available again (low voltage), then process repeats. Fully charge battery then find out why it got low.
It is also possible that and corrosion at ANY connection will cause this. Clean battery terminals very well.

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!

I unplugged my battery and I can hear something ticking fast, when I pull out fuses under the hood (main fuses) noises change..


could be the solenoid on the starter motor clicking, or sometimes there is just enough battery power to put lights on but higher drain items just click on & off trying to cut in, test the battery output voltage should be at least 12v to start, a fully charged battery will be 13.5v, under 12v is no good.

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.

Avalon won't start, fast clicking noises


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.

02 Chevy Cavalier - Fast Clicking Noise When I Turn Key


your battery isnt holding enough charge to crank the starter.thats what the clicking is. try charging you battery for a good 8-10 hours, if it still does the same thing you'll need a new battery.

Most likely problem is a low battery. Clicking noise is starter trying to engage.
