Question about Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

Seems like a starter issue. Not every time but most of the time when I try to start the car it just clicks...turn it over enough and it will start. It is a 1997 model. Great car and want to keep running it. One day it was trying to turn over and sounded like it was turning over took the key out because it kept turning but would not crank..the key was out and it kept trying to turn over.. [put key in and finally turned off...next time I cranked it fine!

I have a 2000 toyota corolla..in the morning I try to start my car and turn on the key with just a click...I try it again with a turnj of the engine and then it stops...again witha a click and one tu


Take the car to an auto part store. Have them check the cranking Amps of the battery. Most starting issues are solved this way. If the battery is in good shape then start troubleshooting wiring, connections and then the starter motor.

2008 sl awd Nissan Rogue, won't start Battery seems to have power making a clicking sound may be starter, having hard time finding starter location.


Know this problem was posted several years ago, but having same issue with my 2008 Nissan Rogue. We've tried everything short of having the battery replaced, (including charging it), and nada. So, tomorrow morning, that'll be our next move. Sucks, but best thing to die. Much rather than than an alternator, starter or solenoid.

My 1993 mercury sable has been sitting an a garage for four years the battery was bad so I replaced.now when I go to start it it Wil clik one time but it won't turn over. Why won't it start?


Sounds like the starter is bad. The one click would be the solenoid on the starter engaging but the starter does not turn. If it does not click the next time you try to start, then that would indicate the solenoid is sticking. Also ensure that the cable to starter is good and the connections are tight. The starter will have 2 wires. 1 heavy wire that runs the starter itself and a lighter wire that runs the solenoid. The second wire seems good. Also ensure there is not an inline fuse in the starter cable. Some cable incorporate the inline fuse in case the wire shorts out to the chassis.

1991 Lexus 400 - engine doesn't start - battery seems charged - 12.3 volts - makes clicking sound only - doesn't turn over at all.


Is it one click or multiple clicks. If it's multiple clicks, it sounds like a dead battery. Voltage isn't always an indicator of a good battery, you need to have enough cranking amps to be able to start an engine also. If you have dash lights and it only clicks once, you could have a bad starter. An easy way to check this is to try and jump start the vehicle. If it starts up with a jump start, you need a new battery. If it still doesn't start up and it just clicks, you probably need a new starter.

Good Luck!

My 2004 alero works just fine all the time, but today leaving for work, it won't start. Just got one click and nothing, no trying to turn over. It seems like the dome light works, maybe dimmer than...


Sounds like a battery. Battery probably has enough juice to make the dome lights work, but not enough juice to turn the starter. Have your battery checked out.

99 Aurora. 2nd starter. Car sometimes won't start. Sounds like starter solenoid. When it doesn't start, I turn the key and hear solenoid click. Mechanic claims it's not the starter. This happens about once...


We had the same issue on an 2001 Aurora. I left it for a year before it finally annoyed me enough to fix it. In our case it was the starter. The only difference was we didn't get a click of the solenoid when it happened.
I would guess the starter OR the alignment of the starter. If the starter is not aligned properly, sometimes when the solenoid engages it does not throw the gear out into the flywheel properly.
The "starts with a jump" doesn't make any sense to me. If this is really the case I would look at the battery and connections for an issue. If you do not have enough power to engage the starter properly this could be the issue.

2004 land rover discovery, ignition clicking noise, panel lighted, engine not turn over, only clicking


it sounds like your starter motor is faulty. first make sure the battery is fully charged, then place a screwdriver between the contacts of the solenoid on the starter motor, if it again just clicks, then you need to repair or replace the starter motor.
hope this helps

Remove the starter & inspect the contacts inside the starter solenoid housing. If they are burnt and/or worn, you will get this condition. Replace the contacts and the plunger, or replace the starter. I change contacts in my shop 3-4 times a week. Quite a common failure. The clicking noise is the plunger hitting one contact, but not the other, due to wear.
