Question about 1994 Mitsubishi 3000GT

1 Answer

1994 3000gt has new battery and starter, yet the car just clicks. Sounds like the starter thats just clicking. All lights come on and are functional in the car. But doesnt even try to turn over. What would it be? Wiring was replaced about 10k miles ago.

Starter clicks when I hit starter button


Assuming that the battery is good (even new ones can be bad) it sounds like you have either a bad starter solenoid or bad starter.

How do I know if my the reason my 2005 Grand Prix GT won't start is bec I need a new battery?


The clicking sound is coming from the starter. It could be a faulty solenoid, or you could be right about the battery. If the battery is too weak, the starter will not engage. A quick test is to turn on the dome light. If the dome light dims slightly when cranking and you hear the clicks it is probably the starter. If the light goes out or dims greatly, it is probably the battery. If the battery is weak, it is a good idea to have the charging system tested as well. If the battery is older than three years, it is probably just the battery.

The solenoid click sounds very strong, implying that you have a charged battery and the ignition circuit is functioning out to the solenoid. Suspect an issue with the starter motor. Is the starter motor installed and connected properly?

Hi, I had a start problem with my celica. tried to turn the car over and a constant clicking sound was made, however all lights were on and the radio was working.. thought possible starter problem,...


The problem is that your battery is extremely low. The repeated clicking sound is your starter relay trying to engage, then releasing again when the starter takes the remaining voltage available to try to turn. When the relay disengages, the starter can no longer take any voltage at all, so the relay again engages and the process starts over. This results in "CLICK, CLICK, CLICK, CLICK...." There simply is not enough power available to operate both the relay and the starter.

Your alarm system doesn't have enough voltage to function properly. It "thinks" that someone is trying to steal your car or is messing with your battery cables. It doesn't know the difference between low voltage from a dead battery and low voltage from somebody disconnecting wires. It is simply responding to the low voltage condition as it is designed to do. Fix the voltage problem and you will fix your security system. No need to reset anything.

Jump-start the car or replace the battery and get your charging system checked to make sure everything is functioning properly. It is possible that the battery is good but you have a bad alternator and the battery is low because it is not being charged.

It sounds like you probably have a shorted battery cell. This will not only cause the repeated clicking that you described, but it will also rob power when jump-starting from another vehicle. There is probably enough power when jump starting to turn the starter over, but after the starter take the power that it needs, there is not enough power to operate the computer system....so I have no doubt that you probably are not getting any fuel. The computer has to tell the fuel pump to run. If there is no power for the computer....I think you can figure it out from here.

Replace the battery and try it again.

are the connections to your battery firm? it sounds like one may be lose - the clicking sounds you hear are from the starter solenoid and should only click once but if it does it again and your battery terminals are tight im thinking your solenoid on the starter motor may well be on the way out.. hope not for ya but... did you replace your engine speed sensor? If it keeps going you may need to see a reputable mechanic in your area to check it over... lancers are good cars but...

Hello, It sounds like you have loose battery cables or very corroded cables. If that don't help then you have a loose electrical connection. It could be on the starter, If the cable ends and bolts are corroded the clean with baking soda mixed with water (don't) get any in the battery, You can clean the battery where the cables connect) Hope this helps.

My car dont star, i check my ligths and averything is ok, i listen under de motor a little click click i hit in the starter whit a screw


If ur getting a clicking noise when u attempt to start it sounds like the starter drive ingaging into the flywheel but the starter isn't turning. Check ur battery to make sure it is fully charged and get a load test to make sure it is ok. Next check the connettions to the battery. Ur Problem wasn't complete--if crossing terminals at the starter the engine turns over it is the starter soloid, if it just clicks it is the battery or connections
