You either have a bad connection at the battery terminals or your battery is on it's way out. It is clicking because there is enough amps to activate the starter solenoid, but not enough amps to rotate the starter.

SOURCE: s-10 won't start

The snap sound is the solanoid on the starter. you need to look at the starter and see if the big red wire correded off the starter. also check the ground wire going to the front of the engine as they also like to corrode/loose connection. check your battery voltage at the battery and at the starter on the big red wire.check these while cranking the engine with some help from a friend. if all these look ok then you probably just need a starter.
good luck

SOURCE: 1990 Dodge Ram truck will not start, makes clicking noise.

the clicking noise is the starter solenoid, the heavy electrical contacts that supply 12 volts to the starter are burnt, you will either need to replace the starter slenoid contact set or the solenoid.

SOURCE: Rapid clicking noise coming from under the dashboard.

If you have a tape cassette player in the dash, this can cause a sound like what you are describing. Even though a tape is not in it,,, it can still freak out and cause this sound. Had this happen on several of my old vehicles. Let us know if this helps. Leave feedback for others to see. Thanks.

SOURCE: Lights come on but it won't start, just makes clicking noise

Get your battery checked for charge level. If it is under 10 volts the vehicle won't start properly. It may be a problem with the ignition relays. I have been told those can be a problem with this type of vehicle. Of course, it could be something simple like corrosion on the battery terminals or a bad starter solenoid.

You need answer some questions first to rule some things out.
Is the starter making a noise when you turn the key or is it just clicking? If the lights light, but the starter makes absolutely no noise, then the power cable to the starter is bad or contacts are corroded. If you hear a click every time you turn the key but that is all, then the starter is bad and needs replace. Once it is removed, most parts stores can test it for you. If you can hear the starter spinning but its going real fast then again the starter is bad. If the starter is working properly (like on a really cold day when it doesn't start right away) but the car still won't start, then the starter is fine and your problem is either in the ignition or the fuel system. You may be able to narrow it down if you can read the codes, otherwise it needs a mechanic and you need to decide what is the car worth to you.

It's your starter. Find location of your starter. By the flywheel. Then. Bang on it . Your car will start. You still need to replace the starter.

Won't start but can hear starter make a click noise when trying to start with key


will it start with a jump ? if it does replace the battery and have the charging system tested, if it will not start with a jump then most likely you will need to replace the starter.

Honda Pilot 2003 won't start. batter is good. seems to be an electrical issue because starter won't turn at all and there are strange clicking noises when key is turned


I would be re-checking the battery. Make sure that when you have it tested they do a "load test". Sometimes a battery can seem good, but be bad when there is a large load placed on it. This test will reveal if that is the case. It could also be a starter problem, and it is possible (but unlikely) that it is a wiring problem.

Car won't start makes clicking noise when you turn key


The click noise is the sound of the starter SOLENOID clicking but not contacting to supply voltage to the starter motor.
Now a multimeter test will confirm if the solenoid is contacting and if so then the starter motor is faulty.
It can be due failure of the BRUSH in the motor or the commutator. If so remove the motor and confirm.
Also if the starter pinion is struck the solenoid will click and the motor may not turn.

Depends on the sound that it makes when you turn the key over.

Clicking noise...usually the starter

If it sounds like its going to start, but doesnt, most likely the battery.

If you have replaced the battery recently, then its the alternator.

Sometimes there can be oil build up over the spark plugs so it doesnt get the spark to start.

Hope you get it fixed!!
