You hear clicks and the car doesn't start? That means that you have battery but not enough for the car to start. The battery might be faulty and in need of replacement. I've got a 2000 Cirrus Lx V6, the same happened to me the reason? No water in one of the battery's slots.

1989 nissan pickup 4 cylinder when i turn the key to crank the engine i hear a click sound at the starter what could the click sound be?


could be battery . It needs a huge amount of charge to turn over the starter motor. It may work the headlights but be unable to turn the starter motor.
Suggest get battery tested at a battery seller to see if battery is really ok .
The click is most likely the solenoid on the starter motor clicking on.
You might be able to get someone to run jumper leads
Note +ve to + ve and negative to negative !
from their car while the engine is running and their car is not moving !
Wait 10 minutes
Then try to crank over your car engine .

I jump started a 4wd vehicle a month ago from my car and it took about 10 minutes to get enough charge in it to crank over the engine !

Merc e320 1997 model,W210 engine wont start. Please help


If you hear a click while turning the key this would indicate low charge in battery any reading under 12 on a tester would have trouble starting other than that loose battery leads have you tried jumping if it starts with a jump this would indicate battery.

Engin will not crank I replaced the starter ,ignition starter switch ,starter relay fuse, #8 20 ampfuse,good battery,clean conections .I do hear a click from the fuse box when the key is on start


What is year--make--model of vehicle? Did you check voltage and ground, anywhere? Did you make sure the engine isn't seized?


If you hear a relay clicking, check relay circuits. You can usually feel the relay when it clicks, which relay is it? Battery has a full charge?

Is your starter circuit part of the vehicle security system?

Blazer will not start have gas battery is fine


If I understand you right, it sounds like the starter solenoid went bad and could possibly work again when the engine cooled down. The other scenario is that the ignition switch is bad (on steering column) or the neutral safety switch located on the transmission side. A real fluke would be that the starter BOLTS CAME LOOSE AND JAMMED THE STARTER, IF THIS IS THE CASE LOOSEN STARTER BOLTS, WIGGLE STARTER THEN TIGHTEN BOLTS TO SPECS. 25268178-sbjsv11dlntqjzkc4qi5qeet-5-0.gif

Honda Odessey,1999: will not start. all lights come on I hear one initial click but engine wont turn. It was an old battery so I got another one. no difference. I took the starter to the auto parts store...


If the starter turns "slower than normal" then the starter is not in proper working conditions and is drawing too many amps...why would you put a starter back in when you know it's not working properly? Check all your cables to and from the starter for corrision, check your grounds.
Check your starter relay... Take your battery in and have it "load tested" to determine the health of the battery. "Fully charged" does not mean it's a good battery.

My car wont start but everything else turns on don't know what to do charged the battery and it worked, jumped the car before, and it worked now none of those work at all, but everything works just...


its your starter and it went bad on you because there is a main cable that comes from the Negative battery terminal that goes to the cylinoed of the starter and pushes the starter into the engine block that starts the engine but to find out this that you have to get the hood up and have someone outside to hear if there is any clicking sound by the starter which shows it is engaging to start car. Check first the starter to see if it makes a clicking sound.

I replaced battery and it still won't start. Elect power is on, but nothing happens as far as starting the engine


Do you hear clicking from the engine when trying the starter? If not sure, have someone try the starter while you listen at the engine. If it comes from the solenoid, it should be near the starter motor and have a large wire going from it to the starter motor and another large wire going to the battery positive post. If no clicks, check for a loose or blown fuse for the starter. Again, if it did click, you need a test light or a voltmeter to determine if the problem is the solenoid or it is the starter motor. You should read 12 volts DC on a meter or get light if using a test light. Check the battery side of the solenoid (light on) and try the starter. If the light stays on, the battery side cable is ok. Move to the starter terminal with the light and try the starter--if you get light, the starter motor is bad and needs replaced. If you get no light, then the solenoid is bad and needs replacement.

My gauges work but it wont turn over i dont hear any noise from the starter


Three possibilities I think:
First is weak battery. There may be enough juice to light the gauges but it takes power to turn an engine.

Second, bad solenoid. The solenoid is a relay which closes the high current circuit that delivers the cranking power to the starter motor. If you hear clicking in the engine compartment (not the starter) when you turn the ignition switch on it is probably the solenoid engaging and disengaging. However if the battery is weak it won't turn the starter motor. If the solenoid is clicking look at the battery first. The solenoid could be bad but the clicking indicates it's trying to work and there just may not be enough juice to turn over the engine.

Third possibility is the starter motor itself is dead. You have to answer some questions for yourself. Is this an old,neglected car or one that has been taken care of? I would be looking at battery. Can you jump start it? If yes then weak battery is the likely problem. If the car and battery are relatively new and in good condition you should suspect the charging system, that is, the alternator. Did this happen all of a sudden on a car that was running fine recently or has the car been sitting idle for weeks/months.Eliminate the easy stuff.
Clean battery terminals?
Good battery connections and ground?
Try jump start - if yes then follow up battery/charging system. If no start then try to hear for solenoid clicking. If jump start does nothing -figure the solenoid first. If it sounds like solenoid is kicking in but engine does not turn then the starter is looking a little guilty. Jump starting will answer a lot of questions. If the car is really dead then the car that is jumping may have to be connected and revved up a couple minutes to juice up the dead battery enough to turn the starter over. If it turns over a little during the jump start but just barely then you should figure your battery is bad.

97 chevy lumina wont turn over


The starter solenoid will click when the battery is to low to start the car. Have the battery charged and load tested to make sure it's good. Check the charging system to make sure the alternator is good. Check the wire connections at the starter. If either is loose, the starter won't work.
With a full, known good battery, turn on the headlamps and try starting the engine. If the headlamps stay bright, the contacts in the solenoid are bad. If the headlamps dim greatly or go out, the starter is shorted out and must be replaced.
Also try turning the crankshaft manually with a breaker bar and socket if you suspect that the engine may have seized up.
