I have a 1994 geo prism I replaced the starter cause it was making a clicking noise and it's still clicking. The clicking is coming from the new starter I replaced. Please help


Turn the key to run, but don't start the engine. If the clicking continues, unhook the small wire from the starter. If the clicking stops, you have a short causing power to pulse to the starter control wire, possible bad ignition switch.

In a 2000 Neon the low oil buzzer went off a couple times until the car shutdown it didn't get hot I replaced oil plug fill oil when I turn key it clicks 1 time like weak battery what is my problem


Possible internal starter motor problem. If the battery is good, try tapping on the starter while someone holds the key in the crank position. If the vehicle starts, the starter motor will need to be replaced

What is wrong when you turn the key to start and the radio and all the instruments turn on but the starter doesn't click and the engine doesn't turn on even after trying to jump start it


Dead battery

Dangerous practice to try & jump a dead battery

The battery cables could be loose at either end or corroded internally

Most likely the battery is worn out, if original to car
since it was new, or the starter solenoid is worn

You do not want to jump any vehicle made after the
year 2000 or your asking for possible problems with
todays electronics.

You need a good battery that has been tested & fully
charged, then only jump with a jump pack,not another car

1995 t-bird v8. Starter will not crank, clicking noise coming from possible relay behind right headlamp. Battery is good and lights are bright no dimming when key is turned


The Ford V-8 they use in both Crown Vic and T-Bird are good for losing the solenoid to the starter. Replace that first before looking for a new starter.

Car won't start. battery is not dead.


First check the battery under load, sometimes the battery has power but when you turn the key it just depletes. If the battery check is good and the engine still won't turn over listen for a single click when you try to start the car. If you hear the click then you should start looking toward the starter.

I test starters the old fashioned way. You will need two people to complete the test. One will have to be in the car ready to turn the key. The other should locate the starter and with a hammer tap it with moderate force all over the entire starter. If the starter is bad it will "most likely" start up.

Note: As I said before "moderate force" You don't need sledge hammer power behind the hammer to do this test. Hitting it too hard will only damage if further if its not the problem.

This issue your having can be 1 of a 100 different thing, my reply is the easiest as well as free way to test your starter. If it does start then obviously its the starter. and that was probably the last start for that starter.

Hope that helped, I could help you further if you provided more info. (battery voltage, mileage, ect.)

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..

Will not start when key is turned, it just clicks


The battery might not have enough juice. Try jump-starting it, try hitting the starter with something while its being cranked. It is possible you bought a bad starter since I don't know who you got it from.

1999 Honda Accord, 5 speed


It could either be a BAD starter or a BAD ignition they both would have the same symptoms of a "CLICK" alone. I would most likely lean toward the ignition because the key is difficult to turn but its not all ways true that key is tight because the ignition is bad, although possible. It could just mean a bad ignition cylinder(just the key part why its tight) I want you to do a test for me. With clutch engaged turn key to start position and listen for click on starter in the hood, when trying to start. If you hear starter click then the ignition switch is good. (Before you do this make sure that battery is FULLY CHARGED).STARTER IS AT FAULT. IF no clicking is heard coming from starter check starter fuse and if its good YOU have a BAD ignition switch. Contact if you need more hep and Thanks for using FIX YA

2005 Honda CRV won't start


if the clicking sound is coming from the engine compartment, it is the starter solenoid. let her try it a couple of times. sometimes it would connect and start the car. then she can bring it home.
