2004 aztek wont start

If it comes to having to buy a starter, I'd recommend a new starter over a used one.

As for the *click* then nothing that's been happening... if the battery is bad, you would hear a *tick-tick-tick-tick-tick* sound. That's the starter solenoid magnetizing and hitting the starter connection. If you hear just one single *click*, I'm guessing you either have a bad starter or a bad connection.

it sounds like either the battery is bad or the battey terminals are dirty or loose........if you have had the battery checked and the terminals are clean i would have someone to hold the key on and tap the starter and see if it will start and if it does replace the starter.....if you need any further info just let me know and i hope this info helped you out..........if you could let me and fixya know how i did or if i was any help at all to you and a thumbs up it would be greatly appreciated........thanks and have a good day.........

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!

1990 ford tempo wont start there is a ticking in the solinoid for the starter on driver side fender car will not turn over any suggestions

If the solinoid if clicking, sounds as thought the impellar is stuck. Try having someone turn over the car while you take a hammer and tap the starter at the same time. If the car turns over, you will have to replace the starter. You can usually get a few starts out of the tapping method before the starter fails.

Feedback is appreciated.

If I have a weak battery or there is acid leak from the battery would the car still have power but not turn over i have a loud ticking noise like something is not catching but my battery isnt dead what...

if your battery is good and your try to start your car and all you hear is clicking, that means yoru starting is satrting to fail and it doesnt catch. but try this to see if its your starter. Locate your starter and have soembody cranking the engine while yout tap little bit on the started with a piece of metal or little hammer, This will make the starter catch in al least ones and will show you if it is the problem. And this method worked for me 40 times out of 50. Good luck bro

Battery good has gas clicks but does not start. Just happened today battery is new is holding 12 volts. does not even turn over

Its your starter or starter selenoid. If you can reach the starter, try tapping on it with a hammer or something that can reach. While your tapping it have someone inside the car keep trying to start it. This might be a temporary fix, but it will get you going. Please rate thank you
