2011 ford focus 1.8 clicking noise when start engine


Could be several problems - check the battery terminals to make sure they are clean. Next check the battery to see if it is fully charged. If both those items checked are OK then the next step is to check the starter.

Now the starter has a selenoid which engages and provides power to the starter motor when you turn the key to the start position.

If you only get a clicking noise then it could be the selenoid valve itself or the starter motor.. Some fords have the selenoid mounted on the firewall others are mounted on the starter motor itself.

So what you need to do next is bypass the selenoid valve and provide power directly to the starter - if the starter turns the engine over then the selenoid valve is the problem. If the starter motor doesn't turn the engine over then it's the starter motor and a replacement is necessary.

Hope this info helps.

My aero star wont turn over even when jump start it ignition makes a clicking sound i changed selenoid help


Your starter is at fault here. If you want to check it, just hit (not to hard!) your starter with a hammer on the housing. if it starts, the starter must be replaced.

Jeep won't start. turn the ignition key and hear clicking sound in engine compartment. I had a remote car starter installed 2 years ago and can start the car that way. when i started the car with the...


clicking when you turn the ignition on most vehicles could be one of two things. First the selenoid for the starter. Second the batterry is worn out or drained. Since your jeep starts with the remote its not your battery. Lucky for you your remote starter is like having a second selenoid. If you are so inclined you might try to fix it yourself. Open the hood. Have someone else turn the key. Follow the sound. I don't have a jeep of that model to look at but It could possibly be comming from a two post terminal that is realatively easy to change. If you are worried about reassembly take pictures before you start. Clean all connections that look corroded.

Intermittent starting problem. Turning key does nothing.


Sounds like you could have a faulty switch, but I would check the starter selenoid first. Sometimes when the selenoid goes bad it will behave in the way you describe. If, with your key in the on position, (not on start), you can jump power from the hot wire, (positive), post on your selenoid to the hot wire that goes from the selenoid to the starter and the starter then engages, but doesn't otherwise, it is a selenoid problem. Good Luck! I hope you find this very helpful!

My pick-up truck wont start it had a bad starter so i replaced the starter, then the battery died....but in the same day...i decided to just use other truck and give it a jump start, but my truck was only...


Based on your description, the starter selenoid is not getting enough juice (current) to pull up solidly. So, causes are:
1. Low battery voltage
2. bad connection of battery+ at the battery or at the selenoid terminal.
3. bad ground connection between the starter selenoid and the truck chassis.

If you want to bypass the selenoid, you can place a jumper cable on the "FAR" side of the selenoid (the side that feeds the starter). Then momentarily touch the other end of the jumper to the battery + terminal.

If the starter cranks, then you have confirmed the selenoid as problematic. Remove it and either replace it or disassemble and clean it.

Truck won't start.


Check your starter selenoid by jump the battery side of the terminal to the small post next to the battery side. It should send the signal to the starter and rotate the engine. If it doesn't your selenoid is bad. You can bench test your starter by removing it and using jumper cables. Connect the battery post on the starter to the red side of the cables and the black to the starter housing at the bolt hole. The go to the positive and negative of the battery. Starter should rotate, if not, replace it. I usually replace the selenoid and starter together.
