Have the battery load tested....most likely bad connections on battery cables...bad starters usually only click once...a series of fast clicks usually means voltage but no amperage going to started...check battery cables

Have your starter checked. if all it does when you turn the key is click but won't start and ou still have all your power than your starter is bad. you might be able to tack a hammer and SLIGHTLY tap the bottom of the starter to get it to start but that won't last long.

Car wont start with key but will start with push


Sounds like your Battery is on the way out friend, and not turning the engine over fast enough. A push start always turns the engine fast.via the gears.
New Battery Time !!!!! Save getting puffed out pushing.

Car won`t start at all. Just a fast clicking sound from the engine when the ignition key is turned. The lights, radio etc all work fine.


Low battery or bad connection at terminal. Try jumping from a car that's running. If it still doesn't crank, then you have a bad solenoid.

02 Chevy Cavalier - Fast Clicking Noise When I Turn Key


your battery isnt holding enough charge to crank the starter.thats what the clicking is. try charging you battery for a good 8-10 hours, if it still does the same thing you'll need a new battery.

My car wont start


You need a new engine. There has been quite a few cases of rod bearing failures on these engines. If the engine is left idling, the oil pressure drops as it gets hot and thin. If there was significant wear already inside the engine, that wear would accelerate rapidly with low oil pressure and the bearings would spin in their saddles.

98 accord wont start. lights flicker in dash and engine wont turn over


Have the battery checked.  You may have heard a fast clicking sound when the lights were flickering, if so it's coming from the starter solenoid.  If the battery is bad, have the voltage regulator and alternator checked also.  A bad voltage regulator or alternator will kill the new battery.    

Try starting with jumper cables, if that works, you can pull the battery out, take it to a auto parts store that will test it for free (most parts stores will do this).  If it's bad, you can put a new battery in and then drive straight to somewhere to have the charging system tested.
