When you put a new starter in did it have a new sylinoid with it? Also check to make sure all your connections to power are tight and you have a good ground. One quick way to check is to take the starter out and take a pair of jumper cables hook to them to the battery at one end and then ground the negative to the starter housing and then touch the posative end to the posative terminal on the starter. if the starter engages its not a starter issue but possibly a electrical issue in the vehicle.

May be ab bad starter solenoid, or corroded/loose connection at starter, or (ground). Could also be a bad ignition switch. Start from the load; the starter. Test for 12V at starter, OK. Connect short wire from starter and touch sylenoid connection..

Car won't start and starter is only making clunking noise


You can take out the spark plugs, keep track of your spark plug wire order, try to crank it over see if the engine turns over.


Check voltage on your new battery, some need to charge when new.

check for corrosion on the battery and starter cables.

Just changed my starter and battery and battery connectors on my 2000 dodge caravan and just getting a click noise. Before I had put this starter I had on now the auto parts store sold me the wrong starter...


check to see if the other starter you put on drained your battery that is usually what the click means is that the battery doesnt have enough juice to make the starter turn your engine over its just got enough to make the starter try to engage and as soon as the load of the engine is put on it cant do anymore, so check your battery make sure its has a good charge. if your battery is charged and you still only get the click noise then you need to make sure all your connections are tight and are making good metal to meatal contact so that the electricity can flow through it all properly and the voltage from the battery can get to the starter

My 2007 corolla won't start. When I turn the key in the ignition the starter makes a rapid clicking noise. I?ve tried putting the car in neutral and starting it that way, but had no luck. I?ve also tried...


1st check the main cable to the starter make sure it is clean and tight, disconnect battery first, after that there should be a small wire going to the starter jump that small connector to the main battery cable on the starter (IGNITION OFF) if it cranks you have a wiring or ignition switch problem if not Starter time just make sure you get a very good quality starter some cheap and even lifetime starters are so poorly made that even after you replace them you still have a problem only a bad noise coming from the new starter you just put in.

My van wont start when we turn it to start it, it just makes a clicking sound


If its a fast clikcing noise like a machine gun, its a bad connection or a weak battery. If its just one click then nothing it can be the starter or the battery. Try to give it a jump and see if it starts. Get back to me!

The car refused to start, made clicking sounds @ the solenoid and the starter, still had current, the radio was working etc...So I bought a new solenoid which had an extra screw at the bottom where the old...


First, put the old solenoid back on and see if you get the original clicking noise. If yes, you either wired the new one wrong or got a wrong and/or defective part. Your clicking noise can come from several places. First, make sure the battery is good and charged up. Dirty/corroded battery cable ends (yes, even if the lights and radio work), bad connection at the starter, bad solenoid, bad battery cables. A dead starter may engage but not turn, making a kind of click noise too. Take the starter out and get it checked. Remote possibility that it is the ignition switch in the steering column is adjusted wrong or bad. A jump from the positive battery cable to the small post on the solenoid should engage the starter.

Van won't start. Just makes a clikcing noise. Horn sounds weak.


THIS IS CAUSED BY A DEFECTIVE STARTER MOTOR SOLENOID, REMOVE AND REPLACE THE STARTER OR JUST REPLACE THE SOLENOID ON TOP OF THE STARTER IF YOU CAN BUY IT SEPERATE.

2005 Ford Escape does not start, makes clikcing sound


sounds like the starter solenoid is defective, the contacts inside the solenoid get worn from electrical arching and then a no start occurs, the indication is a fairly loud clicking noise when you try to start the engine.

New starter


Was there any shimms between starter and engine block, where it bolts up? If there was they need to be put back in. Sounds to me that the starter is to close to the block, and the teeth on the starter drive are not engaging the flywheel. If there was none get some and try it, any auto parts sell them they come in differnt sizes in thousands of an inch. You should be able to buy them in a package.
