Question about 2001 Saturn S-Series

1 Answer

The car will not start. When you turn the key you just get a clicking noise. The lights on the inside turn on though. We have charged the battery and it still has juice. We also tapped the starter and it still would not work. Where do I go from here?

Just because u charged the battery it doesn't mean it is any good, seen this a 100 times, have it load tested by a local Kragen or Autozone (it is free), the symptoms you discribe are either the battery terminals are corroded or the basttery has an open post inside

Turn key, no start, dash dead, but intermittent symptons


First I would look for voltage drop of both end of battery terminal.not a look or seem tight . you have to do it (voltage drop) and terminal at alternator.
now does alternator charging. take voltage of battery
if the problem occur have voltage of battery taken
like I read your problem it looks like wiring terminal ground and positive
the noise you hear is probably low voltage to a relay and the dropping voltage make the relay switch inside relay cycling noise click or buzz

2006 Tiburon will not start. When you turn the key sounds like a little clicking noise that is coming from the main fuse seems to be shaking/clicking. Lights work so it is not the battery. What could...


It could be the battery even though the lights are on because the battery might have enough charge to turn on lights but not enough power to actually start the engine so you might want to jump start it with another car just to rule that out.

But if its not the problem it might be the Crankshaft Position Sensor.
It happened to me once where it failed on me and my car would turn over but didn't seem to want to start.
Heres a picture of the location of the sensor:

I turn the key and i get the constant fast clicking noise, and the car wont start. I was wondering if the battery is flat, or if the alternator or the starter motor has had it. The lights are still on...


Your battery is drained/not fully charged. The fast clicking noise comes from your starter, the starter selnoid is clicking, however there isn't enought amp to turn over the selenoid to roll over the engine. You can try jumping it using another car, or a portable battery jumper and leave it running or drive the car around for about 20+ min to see if the battery would charge, if it doest charge or it start getting drained down agian, then you need to replace your battery.

My 2006 VW Beetle will not start after numerous attempts of turning the key over...there are no indicator lights coming on when I turn the key over...is my battery possibly dead?


Possibly. If it is making a faint click-click-click noise or not making any noise whatsoever, chances are its your battery.

Have the battery boosted, as per boosting instruction in your owners manual.

You may want to replace the battery anyways, as every time a battery is completely drained, cells in the battery die, and it will not hold a full charge.

It sounds very much like your battery is discharged, and does not have enough charge left to turn your engine over (the clicking noise is your solenoid trying to engage the starter, but it is not getting enough power to do so). The fact that your various little lights work does not indicate that you have nearly enough of a charge in the battery to start the car.

I think that if you have your battery charged (or replaced, if necessary), that will solve your problem. You might take the battery to Autozone or a place like it and have them check it for taking a charge (I don't think that charge for that).

Hope this helps you.

02 Chevy Cavalier - Fast Clicking Noise When I Turn Key


your battery isnt holding enough charge to crank the starter.thats what the clicking is. try charging you battery for a good 8-10 hours, if it still does the same thing you'll need a new battery.
