    at first it was like it was straining to start..then the battery went dead, so I checked alternator, batterie and starter, all those parts were removed from my car and tested, they were all good, when I tried to start the car it just ticked..like tic, tic, tic..not like a bomb though..like a battery going dead.

The problem is in the starter solenoid, the heavy battery contacts are burned, they almost always bench test ok, replace the starter solenoid and the problem will be fixed. You can just replace the contacts, ebay is a good choice, about 10 bucks. see picture below of typical contact set.when i try to start my car it just ticks.. - b97b38f.jpg

2002 Ford Taurus has no power. No head lights no dome light no horn blah blah. Ok first of all my cars alarm kept going off by itself off and on for 2 weeks. I come out to start the car and it goes click...


One possibility is that the battery terminals are either corroded or not tight to the battery posts. Second, the battery itself may have seen its days. Try another battery of simply replace it. If the problem still exists, the have a mechanic inspect the main wiring from the battery to fuse block. Your alarm device may have its own battery source. The tick tick are the cars systems relays trying to engage, but there is not enough power for them to engage.

Ticking noise when trying to start car


Hi

Sounds like a flat battery !

Get a jump start, with a good heavy duty set of jump leads.

Then have your battery tested.

Good Luck !

A FixYa rating would be appreciated thanks. !

The most likely cause of your problem is your alternator and/or battery. You can have them tested at most any auto parts store for free.
One of these two things will fix this type of problem 90% of the time.
