Question about 1994 Oldsmobile Achieva Special Edition
My car didnt start and i heard 3 clicks 3 days later it started right up after i turned it off it didnt start again i changed the ignition switch, still nothing, now when i try to start it i hear alot of clicks in a row, please help.
Yeah The solenoid might be going bad, also you might want to make sure the battery terminals are not loose.
make sure you have a good connection on the post of the terminal battery. most people overlook this, thinking the battery is going bad. if all is well with that. then perhaps you do have a bad solenoid.
replacement might be in order

If you are hearing loud clicking, this is usually the starter silinoid. This part makes a loud clicking sound if the battery cannot supply enough amperage to operate the starter to turn over the engine. The battery must supply at least 80 to 100 Amps on a normal day to start the engine.
The battery can only be tested for amperage output with a load tester. The battery may be defective from age and use, or from the alternator going defective and damaging the battery.

not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can
be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it
can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or
no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition
coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.
confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.
