The clicking is a relay click. If your car is not starting but only clicking it's either the solenoid on the starter, the starter, short there or neutral safety switch is bad.

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.

Loud humming noise from under my Tahoe 2 WD


Is it closer to the back of the vehicle or the front?Possibly the fuel pump. Try opening the gas tank and stick your ear close to the intake of the tank while someone turns the key.

My car was giving a problem it wouldn't crank on. The ignition would turn on but when I would try to start the car it would make a clicking noise. So I changed the starter and still having the same...


Perhaps the thick power cable to the starter is broken. Is it a little click like a relay or more of a clonk like a solenoid? The starter often has the solenoid built in. It's this clonk that connects the heavy power to the motor. You don't usually notice this clonk because it's immediately followed by engine cranking.

So two possible causes;
1. Big power wire to the starter
2. Solenoid not firing.

Car died at light, tried to start then clicking noise. car started on a jump. then replaced the battery & altenator. later on driving car again. car dies at light tried to start then clicking noise...


Did anybody bother to actually TEST the charging and starting system or are we just replacing parts? This whole thing COULD be caused by something as simple as a bad battery cable connection.

I would recommend reading the following articles:

Sounds like your battery is low-- is it the original battery? if so it may be time for a new one.
Try jump starting it yet?

Wont start


just one click or a rapid clicking???? a bad connection could cause this, or if its one big click and nothing happens, the starter solenoid may be bad. have someone tap on the stater while you hold the key in the start position. if it then starts, replace the starter. Buy quality parts, NOT from AZ if thats where you get parts.

Loud humming and clicking noise!


You could try looking at the idler pulleys or the air conditioner these 2 things can cause a noise like that, If you have to take the fan belt off make sure you draw a diagram so you know which way it goes, Sometimes you need to do this so you can spin the pulleys by hand to determin if it is one of them.

Clicking noise under the glovebox


It may be a relay clicking. You can test the relay with an ohmmeter or multi-tester. Have you noticed any components not working?

Clicking noise when trying to start car,battery is ok, wont start


That Clicking is the Battery causing it not to Start. You need to Replace that Battery or at Least put a Charger on it for a Couple of hours to see if you can Salvage it for a While.
