If the headlights dim when you try to crank the enging the problem will be the starter motor jamming. If they remain bright you can suspect the starter soleniod or wiring but as it is making a clicking noise, I would look at the solenoid first.

Sounds like the starter is seized, give it a tap or two with a hammer and she'll fire right up.

Wont start


If it's making clicking noise then that sounds and means that it's the starter... Nothing else makes it click when turning the key, then the starter... If it was the Alternator it wouldn't hold the charge... You could try with jumper cables to turn it on then removing the negative terminal from the battery... If it turns off then it's the Alternator... Those are two possible solutions... Keep with the updates.

IF BATTERY CABLES OKAY.REMOVE STARTER HAVE STARTER AND SOLENOID TESTED AT ANY AUTO PARTS STORE FREE.BE SURE TO TURN OFF RADIO BEFORE REMOVING NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE.DOING THIS KEEP YOU FROM LOSING RADIO CODE.

It is probably your starter. If it doesn't make a noise when you turn it, starter. Check fuses as well.

Only makes a clicking noise and wont start


First, remove the battery terminals and clean them. Check that the ground wire on the block is tight and clean and the wire at the starter is also good. If you have 12v at the main starter cable and12v at the smaller (trigger) wire next to it with the key turned to the "start" position, it's likely the starter is bad (providing you can turn the engine by hand with key switch off) Make sure that the battery has 12v before starting diagnosis...radio etc. draw far less than the starter does. Even if relatively new, if the charging system isn't working, it will draw down the battery in less than an hour while driving..
