SOURCE: Battery good, wont turn over, just a click when try to start

it is most likley starter relay or starter.with vehicle in park and e-brake on have someone tap on the starter with hammer while your trying to start.if starter starts to crank then you know the starter is on the way out.if starter does not crank it may already be shot.srarter relay is on fire wall check power + ground.

SOURCE: Car won't start

Take your batterie cables off the battery and clean them really good. the best way to clean a battery cable is to go and buy a box of arm and hammer baking soda for the .50 cents and what you do is put a small amount of water on the cables and then dump the baking soda on them and slowly add more water. Baking soda is the only thing that nutralizes sulferic acid. and if you ever get battery acid on your self you can use the baking soda to nutralize it and stop the burning and the eating of the acid. but it sounds to me that you are not getting a good connection at the battery and also check to see if your cables are tight.
please rate me if you would and i hope this helps you out
thank you

Either solenoid or starter is done. Charge battery to make sure it's still up. Could have enough power for lights and such but not enough for starter. Bypass solenoid with jumper cables to see if starter kicks in, if it does change solenoid. Starter could be seizing up. Get under and hit it with a hammer on the back of housing a few times and try.

I have a 1988 Oldsmoble cutlass supreme gt and it wont start unless i spray starter fluid in the carbuerator.

Sounds like you are not getting any gas to the carb. Turn the key one click with radio off but don't try to start the car and listen for a humming sound coming from the rear of the car (gas tank area). You are listening to hear for the fuel pump. If you don't hear any humming then either the fuel pump relay is shot (cheapest fix) or the fuel pump is shot.

Battery is dead. Try jumpstarting the truck. The ticking is relays trying to close, but not having enough power to stay closed.

The car makes a clicking noise when starting. It will not turn over and all of the guages go to full and the wipers come on. The battery has power. What is the problem?

That clicking sound you hear is the starter trying to turn. Even though your battery has power, it sounds like it does not have enough power to turn the starter. Either that, or the battery connections might be loose. Make sure that the battery connections are clean and secure. If that does not do the trick, try getting a jumpstart, and go get your battery tested. It could be that the battery is still good, but has drained partially because of an interior light, or radio left on, or other load. If the starter does not turn even with a jumpstart, then it could mean you have a bad starter, but most likely the problem is with the battery or its connections.

Car wont start. when key is turned i get weird clicks.

You said you checked your battery, did you check volts and amps? It's possible that your battery is not functioning properly. You may need a new one. Does it start if you try to jumpstart it?

My 06 sedona wont start just a clicking noise, radio and lights work. Just got a new battery for it and nothing changed. Is there a fuse/relay problem or probably the starter?

Try jumpstarting it. My 06 has done that a few times and jumpstarting has worked every time. Usually, one of the kids left a dome light on or something.
