It is the starter's solenoid, sometimes it gets stuck because of rust or worn out. Just to make sure first knock the starter gently with a hammer if this does not help try to start it by hand which is: take a long screwdriver, put a rubber glove to isolate yourself, try to connect the two bolts at the end of starter. If it starts and than later problems remains you will need to get it fixed or replaced.

Hyundai Sante Fe Imobiliser problem?

can you hear the starter click at all take a hammer and tap on the starter if that works then you know the starter is bad, if you are comfortable enough take out the battery and the starter and take them to your local autozone have them tested just because a battery is fully charged doesn't mean that it doesn't have a dead cell or 2. They can test the starter also

Honda Odessey,1999: will not start. all lights come on I hear one initial click but engine wont turn. It was an old battery so I got another one. no difference. I took the starter to the auto parts store...

If the starter turns "slower than normal" then the starter is not in proper working conditions and is drawing too many amps...why would you put a starter back in when you know it's not working properly? Check all your cables to and from the starter for corrision, check your grounds.
Check your starter relay... Take your battery in and have it "load tested" to determine the health of the battery. "Fully charged" does not mean it's a good battery.

Check and clean the ground on your battery cable. Also charge battery even if is new. Starters use all the amperage a fully charged battery produces to turn that starter. Make surecables are clean and tight :)

Why wont it Turn over!!!! all i hear is clicking

check resistance in the wires to the starter if battery is fully charged it should work fine, put a volt meter on the battery and see what the voltage is. from the positive on the battery to the positive on the starter.
If you lose any voltage between these 2 points replace the wire.same on the ground side. do this while the car is being cranked. there should be no voltage drop until after the starter.
many people account this kind of problem to the starter when in the first place it was a wiring issue in the beginning.

Clicking noise will not turn over after placing positive connector

the clicking noise you are hearing. is generated from low voltage to the starter. the solenoid will not stay closed. to bring primary voltage to starter motor.
solution take battery to local parts store have it fully charged, then load tested. the fully charged battery,
should be the answer.

Our 2001 saturn sedan wont start we only hear a click noise. can it be a blown fuse for the security on the car that may be causing the car not to start

Chck that the battery is fully charged . There used to be a syaing that, "many clicks means it's a bad battery. One click may be the starter". The solenoid is not engaging the flywheel. If the battery is fully charged the starter is bad.
