On the positive side of battery Julie is where your fusible links are,you say it's getting hot,I would follow all wires,look for burnt or swollen wires,they go to starter.Here's a wiring diagram,it shows that you have 3 fusible links leaving your positive battery,they need looking at,check all wiring in line with positive battery cable.Look at diagram number 25,enlarge to see.

Engine won't start, just clicks, wouldn't start even after trying to jump start


battery is dead try to pair of jumper cables connected the same way as a single jumper cable this increases the cross sectional area of the wire causing more current flow

Sprinter won't turn over after off for ten secs. Then will start after appx 10 mins. It's an 06 diesel freight liner. Noticed this always happens exactly after a relay click?


This is a bad motor ground cable. I call it the 1 click no start.
test by jumper cable on motor and other end to battery ground post.

1991 ford explorer will not turn over when hot


Have the battery tested and check the battery positive cable for corrosion. Also have a amperage draw test done on the starter motor, it is one of them. If it just clicks but won't start then the starter is defective in most cases. Have it properly diagnosed by a dealer before any parts are replaced to avoid unnecessary parts replacement

the clicking that you hear is coming from the starter relay. sounds like your ignition starter switch or ignition lock cylinder is bad.

I drove my car too a friends house last night, i have a brand new battery, i had the radio on then i went to turn over the car and all power was lost, nothing came on, when we stuck the jumper cables i had...


Sounds like 1 of the following:
  • Dirty or corroded battery connection
  • Loose battery cable
Either of these conditions will both prevent the battery from properly recharging and prevent sufficient power from the battery to start the car. If the car won't start only when the engine is warm, you may have a bad starter that works when it's cold but not when it's hot.

Won't start. 2 fully charged batteries tried. Cleaned battery connections. Just clicks when turning key to "Start". Car stopped while driving. Towed home.


This sounds like a loose connection at the starter, Follow the positive battery cable down to the starter. Check the connection for being hot (rusty color). There are two large connections on the starter check both. If one or the other looks discolored the starter may be damaged. Be sure the engine is not locked up. Try to turn the engine by hand at the main crank bolt.

I went to start my 2005 PT Cruiser and got a loud clicking sound and it won't turn over. Is it the starter?


probably not sounds like either a dead or weak battery or bad connections on the battery posts. first take battery cables loose clean terminals and hook back up hopefully then it will start. or use jumper cables and see if it will jump start. if it jump starts then you no its not starter.if it doesnt jump stsrt then clean posts and cable ends and try again. hope this helps. best of luck

Hi there !

I won't say its an alternator problem because the alternator only charges the battery when its on, And it should start with the jump cables even if the battery and the alternator are bad. your Issue is not clear. Does the car start when you jump it ?
