    Possible starter solenoid or battery cable or neutral safety switch, check these first

You have a bad ground wire. check all ground wire locations around engine to frame, and battery to frame.

Clicking noise from under hood before it turns over. sometimes won't start, but will start when jumped. battery is good.


battery may not be good have it load tested --also alternator and starter tested---clicking would be starter solenoid trying to get starter to turn over ---check the connections at battery and starter for loose or corrosion

1999 Dodge Ram 1500 Pick up 5.2 L V8 will not start just clicks. We recently replaced the battery (it's 1 month old), spark plugs, spark plug wires, oil, oil filter, drained the radiator and put some fresh...


If it makes a single click every time you try to start it than the starter is probable bad. Sometimes if you keep trying to start the vehicle the clicking will be enough for the contacts in the solenoid to finally make good contact and allow the starter to finally start the vehicle. If this is the case than replace the starter ASAP.

When trying to start my 1991 Plymouth Sundance America I hear only a clicking sound. I replaced the battery but it did not work. Can it be the alternator?


sounds like you have a bad starter.not your alternator.if the battery is good the car should start even if the alternator is bad.you can even drive the car until the battery runs low.the alternator job is to keep the battery charged.soulds like the solinoid is clicking.but no responce from the starter.have starter checked.

I have a 1993 lexus gs300 it starts and doesn't start when it don't start it just clicks u can jump it but it just clicks then sometimes it just starts right up alternator battery and starer all read good...


My guess would be intermittent solenoid or starter with dead spots. You can try hitting the starter with a hammer when it clicks. That should knock it off a dead spot and verify the dead spot theory. Let us know if you have more questions.

1988 Ford Ranger truck, new battery and new alternator but car won't start, it just clicks?


the clicks are a signature of a bad battery, since your is new, it probally is not bad, i would try to jump the car with cables, even though your battery is new, you dont know how long is sat ont he shelf before you took it home, may be weak, 1 good jump to get the motor going and the alternator will charge it right up so wont have to so it again....

the only other thing is the starting system left to look at if that dont work is the starter, try banging on it a little with a hammer, not to hard though, as someone turns the key, this will sometime free up a locked up solinoid.


Good Luck

My buicks battery has just died. When I jumped it it goes to turn over for a second with a click and then dies down, but all the lights come on. How do I know if its the starter alternator or battery


if the lights are bright and you hear a clicking and your heat blows good, the head lights are still real bright after trying to start a few time replace the starter (you can try to hit the starter with a hammer otr somthing heavy a few times and then try to start if it sounds better or starts replace the starter) if the battery goes dead try to jumpit if it starts then dies after a few min its the alt if it starts runs good and you let it run for about half hour shut it off and it wont restart rite away its the battery.

Clicking not cranking. Replaced battery at Pep


Why did you replace battery in the first place Before checking out the reason of why it wouldent start???????????.
1st when you turn the key does the starter motor click
2ndTurn on headlights and then try starting ,do the lights go out (yes/no) 3rdThe Alternator only does the charging not the starting
BUT YOU say you can jump it and it will start ???????????????
Well that still puts it down to either the Starter OR the BATTERY is no good unless you have a24 volt system (which you havent)
So check the Red + lead from the battery to Starter motor for good tight fit ,,and the Black -lead to any engine bolt and also to the body (2 wires 1thick 1 thinner Black leads ) good tight fit ,,
The funny hum you can hear would be the fuel pump working and that is in the fueltank But just check under the bonnet and make sure that
its not coming from the alternator as sometimes it get a short inside and will flattern the battery in 3minutes (that also has a Red feed wire going to it.
SO LET ME KNOW HOW YOU GET ON Ron
