How do I get my car to start?


Hi Timothy:
I'd try checking the starter relay/solenoid. That should be where the clicking is coming from.
Before you do any testing, make sure the vehicle is in Park or Neutral, and that the parking brakes are set.
- If you short across the supply wire (from the battery) to the small terminal and the engine turns over, the problem is not the solenoid.
- If you short across the two heavy wire terminals (Watch for LARGE sparks) and the engine turns over, the problem will be with the solenoid.
Reply as a COMMENT to this post and I'll try to help further if needed.
Cheers.

2010 gmc seirra hybrid 6.0 won't start but all lites and everything works fine. But there's a constant clicking up by fuse box under hood


constant clicking means the solenoid for your starter motor is either:
- Defective (not likely- since the click means it was working momentarily)
- Not getting enough power to stay on (battery is good for light, not for amperage of starter motor)
- Turns itself off due to overload amperage (seized starter motor/engine)

The clicking is commonly just an indicator of a dead battery; the solenoid clicks- connects power to the huge drain of the starter motor- then, as the amperage draw "browns out" the battery, not enough power is left to keep the solenoid on- clicks off. power drain is gone- solenoid clicks back on- (repeat until battery is REALLY too dead to even get the solenoid to click)

Its important to note that interior lights, dashboards, and stereos draw very little power, an are not good indicators of battery charge.

I would recommend getting a jump-start from somebody, before doing anything more intense. After engine is running, maybe bring it to a mechanic to check its battery charging circuit.

Starter solenoid location


The Solenoid is located on the starter. Typically the solenoid/starter are replaced as one unit. Before you go replacing anything, rule out bad connections ,bad cables. Check all connections at battery. Especially check the ground connections from battery to engine block. See if the starter has a ground wire and check it. Check for corrosion in battery cables. Check connections on the starter, both the smaller wire and the larger cable from the battery. If you disconnect any of these wires, first disconnect the negative cable on the battery. Mechanics know how to 'jump start' the starter directly form the battery. If you know how to do this- try it. If you don't know how - DON"T TRY IT! What you can try is to connect a jumper cable from the NEGATIVE terminal of the battery to the BODY of the starter, not to any of the wires, and see if the car starts. This little test will rule out a ground problem

Rodeo just clicks ,not battery or starter what next?


Turn on the interior lights. Try to start the engine. If the starter solenoid clicks and , the interior lights doesn't change intensity, then you have to troubleshoot the starter. If the interior lights dims then something at starter or engine is jammed.
If you suspect anything wrong with the starter let me know, and a will tell you how to troubleshoot the starter.

I turn the key and I hear a click from the engine compartment. This has happened before and I checked the relay fuse and it was okay but then it mysteriously started. This time I did the same thing and...


That would be your starter. More than likely the bushings went bad. The click is the gear from the starter popping out to crank the engine, but ther is not enough power to turn it. If it is a real hard click. Then it is probably starter. If it is very faint it could be a battery or solenoid problem. The solenoid is located attached to the starter. Since you have to remove starter to replace solenoid, I would take it to the parts store and have it tested so you know for sure before you buy unneeded parts

the starter solenoid is on top of the starter, the starter is on the bottom rear of engine, the problem u are discribing is a defective starter solenoid, with this type of starter I doubt that tapping on it will make the truck start, u will need to replace the starter solenoid.

When you turn the key, get a clicking noise and no engine cranking, the clicking noise is normally the solenoid. The solenoid is a heavy duty relay that applies 12 volts to the starter. In most cases the solenoid is mounted physically on the starter. If you got a remote starter at the auto parts store you can
hook it up to the solenoid directly and push a button on the remote starer , (which takes the place of the ignition switch) and see if the engine cranks


Hope this helps Good Luck Loringh
