If battery is fully charged and checks good then have a helper hold the key in the start position while someone hits the starter with a hammer it may start this would show for sure the starter is the problem

Sounds like the battery is weak or the charging system has a problem...take it to an AutoZone or a WalMart Auto Service, they'll check it and tell you whether it's one or both for free...or, you can jump start it, and after it has been running for 5 minutes, unhook the battery ground cable...if it quits, you have a charging system problem, if not, the battery's bad...

My 2004 yukon xl wont start

You need spark at the right time, fuel pressure at the injectors, and normal compression.
Have the spark plugs been changed in the past couple of years ?
Have you checked the fuel pressure to see if it is enough ?
Have you sprayed carb cleaner into the throttle body to try to make the engine try to start ?
Does it sound like it has normal compression when cranking ?

Click in the starter wont start some time

tedjohnson50, It sounds like you have a starter solenoid problem. A weak solenoid on your starter will do this when you try to start the vehicle. A weak battery will do the same thing. A bad alternator will also cause these problems. So the first thing is to have your battery load tested and you charging system checked before you can condemn the starter. Good luck with this.

Lites "click" when i try starting. Car started w/ a jump. Ran for 30 minutes turned off. Wont start. Alternator? Or just battery?

sounds like alternater is not charging-however you should charge the battery and have it tested-if the battery is getting weak it can cause the alternater to over work causing a failure

Wont start funny clicking sound when i turn the key ???


The clicking you are hearing, is the sound of a weak battery, Jump start the vehicle and take it to an AutoZone for a Charging System check.

Good Luck!!
