If you are only getting clicks then the problem could be one of a few things. check your grounds for corrosion, breaks, and tightness against the frame/ motor. If that checks out, then follow your positive leads and insure that they are all tight. last but not least check to insure your battery is strong enough. you could have a dead cell in your battery, and that would cause you to not get enough juice to turn the engine over.

My 1980 ford bronco wont start. replaced solenoid and starter and it dose the same thing. wont crank wen i disconnect and reconnect battery and i try to start it all it dose is it clicks and everything...

it sounds like the battery has a problem with it and needs replacing,as you try to start the truck it pulls all the voltage out of the battery(which is very little in the battery)causing the clicking sound you hear,make sure the battery cable connections are tight and clean,both the terminals and cable takes very little voltage to power up a radio or lights and they probably stop working shortly after they are turned on.

Car battery works but the car wont turn over the starter I think

eaither you have a bad starter, bad celinoid, or a bad connection from the positive to your starter or ground to your block. if you try and turn it overand it just clicks you have a bad celinoid. if you tap the casing of the starter and the engine turns over then you need to buy a new starter or rebuild the one you have.

double check the starter motor and make sure it is shimmed right if needed or it could be flywheel teeth are grground down from wear which means droping trannny and replacing flywheel good luck

2003 Cadillac Deville wont start. Not even a clicking noise. They tell me it's the starter. Need to know how to change the starteror can I just change the celinoid to fix yhe problem? Thanks, K

The starter is under the intake manifold. Replace the complete starter. If you go through that much labor, it would be foolish to just replace the solenoid on a 8 year old starter.

Charge battery, Do not continue to attempt to start.

The heavy Clicking will destroy the starter.

bad ground wire on battery,if everything dims in vehical while turning ignition and I mean from bright to almost nothing thats what is wrong,if not some have a small fusible link to solenoid that blows or gets disconnected or corroded.
your ground wire will look fine but maybe have broke or corroded connection inside or on ends,had same problem with more than one vehical.easy check use a jumper cable from negative on battery to alternator bracket and give it a whirl.
