Possibly the starter solenoid clicking. Check the connections on the starter. Should have a small lead on it for the solenoid operation, and a bigger cable from the battery. check that these are tight. Failing that, Try turning the key while rocking the car side to side or by getting a helper to lightly tap the starter with a jack handle. If it starts then, your starter is on the way out ! Good luck.

Clicking noise wont start


Sounds like a weak solenoid on the starter. Probably needs starter replacement. Those cars need a mechanic to work on them.

2003 dodge caravan will not start. Makes a clicking noise, and dash shuts off, then makes a humming sound.


im going to say an almost dead battery .the hum you hear might be the fuel pump.you never heard it before because the van normaly starts .so boost your van if it starts you may have to replace the altenator the guages, no worries many cars do that .thats a code needing erased and if you disconnect the battery that may go away.

Turn key, makes clicking noise but not start.


Double check your battery connections. If the battery is new and the starter makes a series of clicking noises when the key is held in the start position than you are not getting a good power supply to the starter or there is not a sufficient ground.

My 2003 mercury sable will not start. it is not the battery. it makes a weird click click noise when key is turned in ignition. what could this be?


If you are sure it is not the battery then it has to be the starter. If it makes just one click when you turn the key then the noise you are hearing is the starter solenoid. This means the starter gear is engaging with the flywheel but the motor is no longer working and is not turning the engine over. I hope this helps!

When i turn the key the escape wont start it just makes a clicking noise?


That noise is probably the starter solenoid rattling because the battery charge is low. Start out with a jump or make sure the battery is fully charged up.

Clicking noise when trying to start car,battery is ok, wont start


That Clicking is the Battery causing it not to Start. You need to Replace that Battery or at Least put a Charger on it for a Couple of hours to see if you can Salvage it for a While.
