    Car won't start. Keep cranking and it will sputter and then it trys to start and then you hear a rapid clicking going on underneath the right passenger side dash and then it dies. You try starting again and nothing not even a click or a crank but you know that power is being sucked out of the battery as the dash light all start dimming. Try starting again and nothing and then suddenly it starts cranking but it takes more than 5-10 mins to start ...

You probably need a new starter try looking underneath while someone tries to start it and bang where you hear the clicking coming from if the car tries to crank there is your problem

My 2001 ford windstar wont start-lights come on-but wont take a charge-help


Eventually, you will be replacing the battery (My 2000 Windstar is on its seventh one). Ford may have issued a factory service bulletin (FSB) for 2001 that applied to your vehicle.

Wont start till relays stop klicking


From what you've described, you have what is called the 'no check engine light problem'. Your check engine light does not come on until those relays stop clicking and that's why it will not start. Your ecu needs to be repaired. Look on ebay for that repair service.

My car doesn't start. When I turn the key to start the car it makes a clicking noise and the lights in the car start flashing. I thought is was the battery but when I got a jump charge the engine still...


It sounds like the battery is bad, beacuse it wont even start with a jump. If possible take the battery off and take it to your local autoparts or even walmart car service, they will test the voltage on battery for free, from the description you are giving about the clicking sound pretty sure the battery is gone. good Luck.

1991 honda civic random wont start, on the random times it wont start the yellow service engin light will come on. battery is good and the engin turns over just wont start.


I have the same problem, It seem to be a relay that doesn't engage making a clicking sound under the fuse panel near the steering wheel happens most of the time when it is hot. playing with the ignition key a few time do the trick for me. wish I had a better explanation/solution for you and myself though.

Car wont start...sometimes


Sounds like a bad starter solenoid, usually cheapest and easiest to replace the starter and solenoid as a unit. It is always best to check for power between the solenoid and the starter with a test light, if the solenoid clicks but the test light doesn't light up you have found the problem in the solenoid.
