I concur. Almost certainly a broken starter.

It's probably the starter, this is the part that gets the piston's moving with some energy from the battery, the fact that you hear clicking means that the battery has a charge, the fact that the car doesn't start most likely indicates that the starter is busted. When the starter goes bad on you, you usually have to replace the whole unit (low $100's in cost)

My 2013 Kia Optima makes a clicking noise and won't start. Just had it at dealership two days ago.


1. Check that the wiring to the battery is tight on the battery terminals and the terminals are clean. Try and jump start the car from another vehicle. If it starts then your battery is bad and needs to be replaced. Also have the alternator checked to ensure it is producing the required electrical current to run the vehicle and keep the battery charged.

2. If it does not start with an attempted jump start off another car and your car is still under warranty get the car to the dealer and get them to check the " brake sensor". If the sensor is faulty your car will not start. However with this condition you would not usually hear any clicking either.

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.

Had to replace a blown engine on a 2005 ford escape xls


Check battery cables for corrosion and good connection.
Try to boost it with jump starter.
Try to tap on starter while attempt to start.
To me sounds like a bad starter.

When I attempt to start my 89 jeep cherokee, it only makes a clicking noise, near the starter relay. Then occasionally it will try to turn over, but makes a grinding noise near the starter.


try to jump start it if it starts its the battery,if it doesnt than it time to remove the starter and go have it tested,while its out look for any worn teeth on the flywheel and starter solenoid teeth also.if starter comes back ok then look at all the cables,look for corrosion as it can hide under the wire sheilding.

95 F250 not starting


You said you tightened the battery cables, did you check the other end of the negative where it bolts to the engine. When you tightened the cables you also used a battery brush and cleaned the posts and ends?

2005 chrysler Town&Country clicks when attempting to start


If the click is one click then that points to the starter. Make sure the battery connections are tight. If it clicks like a machine gun then it is either the battery or a bad connection. Good battery voltage is 12.6 or more and 13.6 when running. I don't know tour skill level of electricity.

Turning the key just results in clicking noises.


Those starters are known for problems see if can reach the top of the starter with a long screwdriver or extension tap on it while someone turns the car over if it cranks there you go.

Wont start


Check the condition of your battery. You may have a battery going bad. The 300, Sebring, Intrepid, and most of the intermediate sized Chrysler cars do wierd stuff like the dash lights going crazy. Try jump starting it.
