It wont start. battery is new, has full volt. when i turn the key to start it just clicks and all dash lights dim,but when i jump start it it starts right away and will stay running for hours


The battery is not being charged and is depleted. The clicking you hear is the starter solenoid engaging. Your charging voltage should be around 14.1 volts. Check for that when you have the car running. If it is closer to 12 volts that is the nominal battery voltage and your alternator needs to be replaced! Especially important if you have a new battery since lead acid batteries do not like being in a discharged condition; it shortens their life considerably.

Dashboard lights flicker s and clicking while trying to start but wont turnover or start


Sounds very much like the battery or the battery cables/connections. If the battery has low fluid or a shorted cell or two, it won't take a full charge no matter how long you charge it.
If you are not able to take the battery in for a load test and validate that it is good, try changing it out with the battery in another vehicle that is not having a problem, and see if that vehicle suddenly develops the same issue. Batteries need to have a load applied while the voltage is checked for a valid determination of it's condition. If you have a volt meter, have someone try the starter while you are checking the battery voltage. If it falls way below 12 volts (replace it), or stays above 12 volts (good) you have a valid answer either way.

2001 Ford focus se automatic wont start. Makes clicking noise when you turn the key. Replaced starter and still clicks and doesn't start for awhile. Is it the battery...fuel pump....spark plugs...?


Battery-that should be checked first, remove it and take it to a Pep Boys, Advance or Auto Zone for a load test (free)-99% of the time, it is NOT the starter with your symptoms.

When starting the truck sometimes it clicks like it needs a battery then the second time its cranks.


Usually this points to these issues:
1) Bad battery cables-check by testing voltage drops across posts. Also get the battery checked at autozone.

2) Dying Starter-Usually caused by worn contacts these can be rebuilt quite easily.
Check for voltages at starter terminals, battery and solenoid (measure with terminal unplugged) while key is in crank.

3)Bad ignition switch-if 12 volts is not being send to the solenoid at crank

Soon you wont be able to start it:

Engine won't start and if starter is replaced does it have any other problems


Engine wont start.If car battery voltage is low then engine wont start.The fully charged battery will show 12 volt.But if battery is showing 12 volt.Then check the battery to starter connection.If that is also checked ok then check voltage for starter itself.The starter is also a 12 volt part.But if the starter is faulty then it has to be replaced.If you start the car but if its not starting then its starter fault.But if the car makes cranking noise but its not getting turn over then there are many other possibilities.But if the car is not even cranking then its faulty starter.Get this checked and confirmed before replacing any part.This should help.Thanks.

When i turn the key over it clicks but it wont start


I presume you have a good battery. The next thing I would check is the starter motor, then the ignition switch. If it doesn't start at all it may be the auto relay switch.

05 Dodge Ram will not start or turn over even when being jumped off. Just clicks. Last night when I tried to start it, ALL THE INTERIOR LIGHTS STARTED FLASHING AS WELL AS THE INSTRUMENT PANEL.


SOUND LIKE BATTERY IS DEAD.CHECK BATTERY VOLTAGE.A GOOD BATTERY VOLTAGE IS 12.5 VOLTS.IF LOWER REPLACE BATTERY.IF BATTERY IS GOOD CHECK BATTERY CABLES FOR TIGHTNESS AND CORROSSION.IF CABLES CHECK OUT GOOD.I AM LOOKING AT STARTER SOLENOID.REMOVE HAVE IT CHECKED.REMIND YOU TURN OFF RADIO BEFORE REMOVING CABLES SO YOU WONT LOSE CODE TO PLAY RADIO.IF IT TURN OUT THE BATTERY IS BAD. HAVE ALTERNATOR OUT PUT CHECK TO MAKE SURE ITS CHARGING THE BATTERY.

I used to have this problem with my 97 Bonnieville. The solution was to remove the battery bolt (it used an internal bolt that screws into the battery, as opposed to a clamp that would clamp around a standard battery "post".)

You may have this problem. Try to remove the battery cable from the battery, and clean the metal on the battery and the cable ends. Retighten to the battery, and try again. You can use a wire brush to accomplish this. Be careful of battery acid, and wear gloves.

I use dielectric grease coating on the battery connection to prevent this.

Good Luck!
