Sounds like a weak battery.
Take it out and charge it up.
Then put voltmeter across battery when trying to start.
Before starting it should read 12.5.
When starting should drop to 10.
If below 9 then either bad battery or excess starter draw.
If you stop cranking it should come back up to 12 at least.
If not, battery is not holding charge.
When it does start, must go over 12.5, and when reved, must go to at least 13.5.
If not, then alternator bad, or dirty battery terminals, engine ground, loose belt, etc.

Why won't my car start? What is making the clicking noises coming from the engine compartment?


soleniod on the starter motor is the most likely source of the clicking noise. The starter motor may be faulty and not cranking over the motor.

Car died with no warning


sometimes on a smaller v6 motor they dont make much noise when they lock up. the easiest way to tell if it is locked up on your own is to take a long breaker bar with a socket that fits the bolt on your crank and turn it. if you cant the motor is locked up.

The engine will not turn over and start, and the starter whines down until it starts making a clicking noise.


SOUNDS LIKE LOW VOLTAGE. TRY # 4 CABLE JUMPER CABLES LIGHT DUTY CABLES WON'T DO THE JOB. IF IT JUMP STARTS, CHECK THE ALTERNATOR. WITH MOTOR RUNNING, VOLTAGE AT THE BATTERY SHOULD READ BETWEEN 13.90 & 14.80. REMOVE JUMPER CABLES FOR THE VOLTAGE TEST. THE MOTOR MAY HAVE TO RUN FOR A FEW MINUTES FOR A TRUE VOLTAGE READING.

I would try and jump start the car -- it sounds like the battery might be bad or low on voltage ( due to the cold or age ). if jumping the car works - make sure you test to make sure the alternator is charging properly.
plus this also could be a bad soleniod or starter motor --- but try the jump start first or a new battery.

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
