The clicking sound could be the sound of the silenoid trying to activate a bad starter. See the bendix moves in and out pushing the gear into the flywheel. The starter itself turns the flywheel. So they are a working combo. You sound like you may need a new starter. Here is a tip. Buy original equiptment or get the same one rebuilt buy a shop. Many alternator and starter shops (even tractor repair shop) can handle this type of work in less than a day.

2003 ford explorer shut-off while driving and it won't turn over, no sound when key is turn.


If the headlights work, I would check for voltage at the key switch and the major fuses.
If nothing works, I would start at the battery and work toward the fuse boxes. Could be a bad ground connection too.

2003 impala everything works won't start won'crank


If you try to start the vehicle and there is a click when you turn the key, but does not start, you may have a solenoid problem. This is usually about 3 inches long and 1.5 inches in diameter and attaches to your starter. Try giving it a sharp tap with a hammer as this is often enough to loosen contact points inside.

20002 Ford Explorer - car will not start/turn over. just get clicking sound. battery good.


Typically, when you hear a clicking sound, it indicates that the starter solenoid is bad.

A starter solenoid (or starter relay) is the part of an automobile which relays a large electric current to the starter motor, which in turn sets the engine in motion. In many vehicles the solenoid also engages the starter pinion with the ring gear of the engine.
