Check and make sure the engine ground and frame ground are getting to the battery's negtive post and not loose. also make sure that the positive feed to going to the starter and it's not loose at the starter side. if they are good, then it might be your starter or the solenoid that is strapped to the starter.

Why does mercury 2001 click after battey replaced

The battery is either DEAD or the cables are not properly installed (loose or >) The 'clicking' is the starter solenoid trying to engage.

it sounds like either the battery is bad or the battey terminals are dirty or loose........if you have had the battery checked and the terminals are clean i would have someone to hold the key on and tap the starter and see if it will start and if it does replace the starter.....if you need any further info just let me know and i hope this info helped you out..........if you could let me and fixya know how i did or if i was any help at all to you and a thumbs up it would be greatly appreciated........thanks and have a good day.........

Car wont start..turn key but it wont turn over ...standing outside the car you can hear clicking from starter relay thats has new battery and battey cable ends..

Likely a simple starter replacement is required. Let me know the year and model and I will try to get you step by step instructions for replacement.

I just put a new battey in my Sebring, but the car

Either a bad starter, starter solenoid, or starter relay is most likely the cause.

My 2001 Eclipse will on occasion not crank over when turning the key. The battey V is fine, the lights come on. After a few key turns (a couple of "dead" turns) the car will start right up.

Sounds like a bad connection between your starter relay and starter. Check your connection at the battery post, the starter relay and the cable for the starter. Loosen and re-tighten these. It could be a simple corrosion keeping the connection unstable.

2004 Dodge Neon - Engine died, coasted to stop, and won't restart. Not even a click. Brand new battery, clean terminals, fuses good, starter relay good. Radio and lights work. Power windows work fine.

Does the starter turn the engine over,or not?Or is the engine not running when you turn the ENGINE OVER AND OVER? If there is no starter turning on the car,then check for a start,or main fuse to see if one is blown.Also look for a fusible link burned into.It will look like a wire,but if it is burned into,you can pull the link apart like taffy.It will either be on the starter with the battery cable,or on a positive cable junction near the battery.If I can help,let me know.

Car won't start will not turn over fire from battery to starter. New ground cable installed.

on comment by ap1913 sounds like he has a battey on connection issue and on gr8ful if it is a nissan pick up check on a starter relay, common to go out, but on guest and krmill2002 sounds like a starter might be the issue.
