Although the battery is charged, it may not have enough amps to power the starter and is why you hear the starter solenoid click. It is either the battery has come to its life cycle end, or there is a poor connection at the battery terminals; loose or corrosion may be the cause on the battery terminals, but I'm guessing it is the battery or both.

What is wrong when you turn the key to start and the radio and all the instruments turn on but the starter doesn't click and the engine doesn't turn on even after trying to jump start it


Dead battery

Dangerous practice to try & jump a dead battery

The battery cables could be loose at either end or corroded internally

Most likely the battery is worn out, if original to car
since it was new, or the starter solenoid is worn

You do not want to jump any vehicle made after the
year 2000 or your asking for possible problems with
todays electronics.

You need a good battery that has been tested & fully
charged, then only jump with a jump pack,not another car

Hyundai Sante Fe Imobiliser problem?


can you hear the starter click at all take a hammer and tap on the starter if that works then you know the starter is bad, if you are comfortable enough take out the battery and the starter and take them to your local autozone have them tested just because a battery is fully charged doesn't mean that it doesn't have a dead cell or 2. They can test the starter also

Where is the starter/solenoid located on a 2003 ford expedition 5.4 liter


You checked the relays,found nothing wrong,so you

where it is?

04 expedition wont start fuse box just clicks all power goes out. just replaced the battery


check the voltage on the battery ,, it should read a minimum of 12.4 volts, Ive bought batteries before that had lost some charge , if it has the right voltage,, tap on the relay you hear clicking (you'll need help , someone to try turning it over) make sure all connections are clean,, if that doesn't work, your going to have to have the starter checked

1991 Lexus 400 - engine doesn't start - battery seems charged - 12.3 volts - makes clicking sound only - doesn't turn over at all.


Is it one click or multiple clicks. If it's multiple clicks, it sounds like a dead battery. Voltage isn't always an indicator of a good battery, you need to have enough cranking amps to be able to start an engine also. If you have dash lights and it only clicks once, you could have a bad starter. An easy way to check this is to try and jump start the vehicle. If it starts up with a jump start, you need a new battery. If it still doesn't start up and it just clicks, you probably need a new starter.

Good Luck!

2003 VOYAGER..TURNED KEY AND WON'T START...JUST DROVE IT AN HOUR AGO...DOESN 'T CLICK OR MAKE ANY NOISE WHEN TURNING THE KEY..ALL THE NORMAL LIGHTS COME ON..SEEMS LIKE THE BATTERY IS GOOD?


Sounds like a bad starter. You might get it to start if you tap on the starter with a small hammer or a wrench while someone turns the key for you. If this makes it start, replace the starter.

My car Clicks


Usually when it clciks like that - it means there is not enough power going to the starter.. So it is more than likely the battery..
FYI; the typical life span of a car bettery is around 3 years..

Please dont forget to rate well ;o)

Car won't start, battery fine, just hear clicks


Even though the lights work, the battery may still be just short on power to turn the motor over thus the clicking. Try charging the battery or jumping, if you still get a clicking it would be the starter solenoid. Considering the year you may just want to replace the whole starter.
