This sounds like a weak battery or a bad starter, have the battery tested if it tests good then i would say the starter may be bad, you can remove it and have it tested at most autoparts stores. hope this helps, also make sure battery connections are clean and tight.

SOURCE: I have a 1989 GMC

well the first thing to do is check the voltage at battery, if battery is bad it will make a clicking sound when trying to start vehicle. the voltage at battery should be at least 12.6 volts all things off. with it running at battery should be at least 14.2-14.7 if alternator is ok! if all checks out to be ok, then its either a bad solinoid on starter or the starter itself. good-day ! any auto store will check the voltage for free. just tell them you want to check battery and alt, output.

  • Check your starter with a multimeter for 12v reading
  • Check quality of Power cords, spark plugs cables, choke.
  • Check whether the drive belt or starter belt is loose.
  • Switched ON A\c can cause this due to a faulty stuck compressor!!

SOURCE: My starter on my 2000 Suziki quad makes a clicking sound and won't turn the engine over.

Either the starter will have to come out for testing, rebuilding, or replacing, or the battery is not strong enough to power the starter-maybe it's low on charge. Are all your battery and starter connections clean and tight? Verify the condition of your battery before you condemn the starter.

this sounds like the starter is no good that`s why you get a click noise and why bypassing the solenoid it won`t turn over. the armature must be drawing more amps than what can be supplied.

1998 Honda Accord Won't Start


Park neutral safety switch maybe be the reason for the no crank ! Try putting the vehicle in park ,then try to crank the engine . Testing the electrical circuit is the best way to trouble shoot this problem , along with do a voltage drop test on the starter circuit ! This will test the battery cables an connections .

Does it have a manual or automatic transmission ? Manual ? clutch switch . Looking at a wiring diagram I also see a starter cut relay !

Disconnected battery and now won't start


Won't start as in no rotation of the starter motor and no clicking sound? Or starter turns slowly with the engine? Or the starter and engines turns normally but will not start? Or starter turns normally but engine will not turn?

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

Why won't it crank over?


Sounds like the starter. The faint click would be the starter solenoid, trying to operate starter. Have it tested.

When I try to start the car it makes a click sound and will not start. It only makes the click sound one time. I have changed the battery and replaced the starter and it still wont turn or even make a...


Did you also change the starter solenoid when you changed the starter? That is a possible cause.

Can you turn the engine over by hand from the crankshaft pulley to make sure the engine is not frozen or blocked? You will need a large socket to do that, but if you can't turn the engine over by hand, the starter won't be able to turn the flywheel either. The one click is probably the solenoid firing the starter piston to the flywheel but then nothing makes me think the engine is frozen in some way.

But if the starter and solenoid and battery is trying to turn a frozen flywheel, you should notice some drawdown of light intensity. Do you notice any change?

Replaced fuel pump but it won't start it will crank but it won't start


when you have your hood up in the air can you hear the starter trying to make a clicking sound or no sound at all with the starter ? Starters also go bad too and some times it is intermitten some times as well. You can use a multimeter if you know how to use one that you can use one to test the starter red hot plug from the battery to it.

Have a 98 ford explorer and it won't start tryed to jump it nothen. Put a starter in and still won't click ove it sounds like it dead but if I play with the power distreber box I'm dash lights...


it could very well be the starter solinoid mounted on fender under hood. most fords are setup this way. to test it -- You could use jumper cable to jump the two large studs on the solenoid together, which should make the starter crank the engine, assuming the engine can rotate freely. If jumping the solenoid works, then the solinoid is probably bad. have a good day !!
