The clicking noise is due to low battery charge, or a bad battery. Check to make sure the cables are firmly attached, and free of corrosion, as that could cause your problem If you can jump start it, bring it to a parts store, where most offer a free check of your charging system. Either your battery is bad, or the alternator is not charging it. You could have a drain somewhere, which is killing the battery, but check the charging system 1st. If you can't drive the vehicle to the parts store, pull out the battery and bring it to them, they can test it. Let me know if you have any further questions.

I have a 1989 Ford f150 XLT Lariat. I drove her up to the store and she was only off for about 2 minute when I tried cranking it. It gave a few clicks, then just one loud one and quit. And ever since then...


Have you checked the battery? That's what it sounds like to me. Classic symptoms. You battery has enough juice for the accessories but a LOT is required to crank the engine. If your battery is weak it won't start. Try jumping it, see if it starts. If so, you need a new battery.

Where does a evap sensor go in a 1996 ranger pickup


I'm not an expert and I have a similar problem on the 1996 Mazda extended PU w/2300 four cylinder. Same vehicle, made in ranger plant in NJ.

On the four, the purge solenoid and the purge flow sensor are located just aft (towards driver) of the battery on a vac line between the canister (next to the battery) and the intake (Just forward of the brake master cylinder.

QUESTION: Is there a pressure sensor in the fuel tank of this vehicle??????

sounds like your starter has a dead spot. time to replace. you can try to get it going by having someone hold the key in the start position and tapping the starter with a small hammer. Just make sure the truck is in park and has the hand brake on for safety. If this works, you just saved a tow charge.
