Sounds like your starter has gone bad. Have it checked out, tested, and replaced if necessary.

Clicking when i turn the key


Clicking instead of starting? The clicking is usually the starter solenoid being pushed out to the flywheel. If your engine isn't turning then it means that either your battery is too weak to turn the engine or your starter has malfunctioned or maybe engine that your engine has locked up.

Recommend you either jump start the car or use a battery charger with the start function to see if it is the battery or starter/engine lock up. If the engine still does not turn over. Take off your serpetine belt and try to rotate your engine with a large socket. If the engine rotated, then it is most likely your starter/solenoid that is bad. If the engine would not rotate by hand then something inside the engine has malfunctioned and it will take some serious work to get it operational again.

There is a loud clicking from the engine compartment when the ignitionswitch is activated and the engine doesn't turn over.


Have you had the battery tested or replaced ?
Checked for loose cables ?

The clicking is the solenoid on the starter

That could be bad or the starter it's self

How do you tell if a starter is going bad


The starter will drag and not turn the engine over very fast. The starter solenoid is part of the starter also. It will just click a few times before it starts turning the engine over if it is going bad. It will steadily get worse. You will have to click the starter solenoid several times before it will start after several times. Eventually it will not engage the starter.
If this helps please rate by clicking the 4 thumbs ups. Thanks!

Starter clicks will not turn engine to start


if the starter is clicking, the problem is most likely the starter. try tapping on the starter with a hammer while someone is making it click click click with the key. it it starts working, it probably wont last very long. you might as well replace it, or carry a hammer and someone to click the key.
MAKE SURE THEY DONT RUN YOU OVER IF IT STARTS. you know.. make sure it is in neutral, brakes on , tires blocked, etc.
If there is an oil leak, and the starter is very greasy, that is probably why it quit working. so make sure you address the leak, or it will quit again.

The car does't start


I dont no what model good car you have but the problem you have if the starter just clicks and dosent turn over the engine its Either BATTERY is 50% nogood or the starter motor is poling (shorting inside) or rhe starter bendix isent throughing out or the solenoid is shorting inside OR the engine is siezed up,,,,, But i dont think its the engine so start off with
Turn on headlights ,then turn the key to start Does your lights go out or dim (if yes) jump start from another car ,, if it starts GOOD then battery isent any good,,.
If not and the starter still just clicks or clunks then the starter is faulty BUT before taking it off turn the engine over by hand just a little and try the key again, if no go then take the starter off and away for testing
Let me know how you get on have a goodday Ron
Theres more to check so keep in touch..

Starter clicks rapidly, not cranking, no ignition


It almost sounds like you have a loose connection at the battery. If the connection is loose it can cause the starter to click as you have described. Also it could be the starter itself. If the starter is bad (locked up) it can make the clicking noise and not start the engine. If you can get to the starter, try to tap on it with a hammer while someone is trying to start the engine. I hope this helps.

Engine starting problem


Problem is probably the starter motor. The windings probably have a burnt spot and wont turn over readly.
