There are 2 things that may be the issue.
1. You may have a weak ground connection. Check your battery cable connections at the battery, and on the body and starter. Make sure the connections are clean and tight.

2. You may have a bad starter solenoid. You may need to replace the starter.

I hope this help you, and I wish you luck on your repair.

Car wont turn over and making a humming noise when key is in on position. when i try to start it the car makes a clicking sound.

the alternator isn't charging battery that would account for loss of power and also clicking when try to start , try a jump start if it starts then you know its the battery so with engine running check the alternator charge rate with a voltmeter across the battery terminals anything below 13 volts then check the alternator belt is tight enough , good condition etc , then recheck charge rate if still low fit new alternator

I have an audi 100 cs quattro. My battery is good but my engine won't turn over. Could it be my starter?

How do you know your battery is good? A common mistake is to assume that if the lights, radio, etc, work that the battery must be good. A lot more energy is required to start the engine than is required for the accessories. If your battery isn't in great shape it won't turn the engine over.

Assuming you've checked that. Can you describe what happens when you try to start the car? Is there ANY noise? Clicking sound maybe? Could be the starter if you hear a buzzing noise (or no noise, assuming you do have a good battery).

Car won't start without being charged and when it sits overnight it wont start. makes a clicking noise when trying to start it

Battery is to weak & not holding charge. If the battery does not have enough power the starter will make a fast clicking sound or you will just hear one click.

What is causing the clicking noise when i try 2 start my car

If all you hear is a clicking noise when attempting to start your car it could be caused from a weak battery (from a battery failure or because the alternator failed to charge the battery) or a faulty starter.

1996 ford ranger XLT pickup 3.0. Just recently tryed to start and heard loud clicking noise from part non fender near battery. Battery had been charged because it lost power for some reason . I take long...

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.

My freestyle won't start, it just clicks, then all the electronics start making noise.

Check and make sure you have good clean connections at the battery. This means remove cables and clean with a wire brush. If still no start check battery itself and replace if needed. If battery had to be replaced check the charging system so that you know that there is not a problem with the alternator that caused the battery to go bad. If the battery was fine and charged, and the car still just clicks the starter may be bad . Check and make sure the grounds are good and check starter and replace if needed. This should solve your problem.

1st thing to check is the battery. The clicking noise can be caused by a battery that isn't being charged properly (alternator problem), or most likely a battery that's reached the end of it's lifespan. How old is the battery? Have it checked at a parts store, it should be a free service, as they hope to sell what u need to fix it. Let me know what u find. good luck! countrycurt0
