Question about 2007 Dodge Nitro R/T New Cars

2 Answers

Unable to start engine on 2007 Nitro-no clicking from starter-opened hood and found clicking noises from breakers in box next to battery...removed 3 large gray square ones to stop clicking sound A second clicking sound was coming from beneath the air hose between the firewall and the air intake cover on top center of engine. I removed the + cable to reset "the brains" and went to test the battery and found it 95% charged. Anyone have a clue?

    If the battery now says 100% and I can't turn it over (all the gauges and lights, light up) is it still a battery issue , or something else?

I would have the starter checked ,this is most likely the problem,these starters are bad to act like this,and the contacts in the starter are worn down,and not making contact.

This clicking u hear usually means the battery is low or defective, have it tested and the cables to the battery cleaned and properly tightened.

Replaced water pump on 2001 trooper now the starter only clicks...will not turn over

Start off by removing the drive belt/s
If it turns over you need to then turn off the engine, remove the keys and try spinning each accessory on the engine. One of them may be seized causing the issue

My 2003 Denali won't start I turn the key and just get a fast clicking noise good battery new starter and all power works

Where's the clicking noise coming from ? Under the dash , under the hood in the engine compartment ? Do starter circuit voltage drop test ! When the key is in start position is there constant B+ voltage at the 10 amp crank fuse in the under hood fuse box ? This is an input to the PCM - engine computer to energize the starter relay ! Starter Voltage Drop The battery is good , starter is new ,what about the cables ? watch this video on testing starter circuit !

My 2007 Mercedes Benz won't start. the fuel pump comes on and all lights work fine! I hear a click from what I believe is the starter but after that, nothing! Can anyone help?

If the battery is in good condition check the following;
Make sure the battery terminals are clean and well connected to the posts.
Check the ground cable has a good clean connection to the chassis / engine. Don't assume its OK, loosen the bolt, wiggle it to clear any corrosion and retighten.
Look at your relay box(usually under the hood) locate the starter relay from the lid or owners handbook. Have someone turn the key and see if the click is the relay. If it is then the starter is next. If there is a second click from the solenoid atop the starter but no action you may have to remove the starter for further testing or replacement.
You can check the juice to the starter from the relay with a 12v test lamp and touch the smaller cable post on the starter when someone turns the key. If it lights OK then the starter is at fault.

Gmc envoy won't start sounds like an electrical problem hood open and makes a clicking sound

Check your Negative cable attatched to your starter. Next check your charge on your battery, a clicking noise indicates one of 2 things, 1. your battery is dead or dying and needs to be replaced, a battery charge will only solve the problem temporarily, it will continue to die and ruin your alternator. 2. your starter solenoid is going bad, being unable to deliver enough juice to your copper terminals surrounding the magnet that pushes the small gear pinion on to the flywheel and turns the motor to start.

My battery died while deployed and noone started the SUV no with a new battery it just clicks

If even with a new battery the starter doesn't turn the engine then it's the starter the one that has died, taking the battery with it. You will gonna have to remove it from the car and test it - if it fails don't try to fix it (the parts themselves will cost you more than a refurbished one), just replace it.

2007 Nitro will not start

asd/ignition relay shorting or possble pcm/gem failure. Depending on mileage, I would return to dealer as this is a warranty issue.
