If you are able to jump start it with jumper cables, it's not your starter, it'll most likely your battery or alternator. If you are able to jump it off, take it to your local auto parts store so they can test to see if it's your battery or alternator (this test is usually free).
If you try to jump it off, and it still click's, then yes it does sound like the starter solenoid is bad,.

1986 ford f350 won't start


The solenoid click sounds very strong, implying that you have a charged battery and the ignition circuit is functioning out to the solenoid. Suspect an issue with the starter motor. Is the starter motor installed and connected properly?

Check the spark plug. My truck did the same thing and it was because the spark plug had completely been removed.

Starter


check the connections on your starter and make sure they are tight and corrosion free.. if there is no corrosion and all the connections are tight the the problem is goiung to be that the bendix inside the starter has a flat spot on it causing it to stick and not turn freely... in that case replacing the starter is the the best choice to make..

ITurn key, clicking sound, no turn over


If it won't crank over, it's a problem in the starting circuit, not the ignition circuit. Check your battery and starter for clean, tight connections. Listen for that click to see if it comes from the starter solenoid on the starter-maybe have someone try to start it while you watch and listen under the hood. If the click is from the solenoid (and not from the starter relay), then the starter is not getting full battery power to crank (bad connection), or the starter needs to come off and be tested.
If the click is from the starter relay, you could pull off the little purple wire to the starter solenoid and see if it has 12 volts when the key is in start position. If you have power there in cranking position on the switch, the solenoid is bad or the starter may be the problem-again, it will have to come off for testing. If you have no power at the solenoid in cranking position, the circuit from the ignition switch to the solenoid is not working. The start relay and the neutral safety switch (or clutch switch if manual transmission) are in the starting circuit from ignition switch to the starter solenoid. Good luck.

I wanted to know do i need a new starter


The starter itself might need cleaning of old dirt, grease, oil, or crud inside, but I think your starter solenoid is failing. The contacts in it are probably pitted and failing.
Those starters are pretty bullet-proof. Don't exchange it for a cheap alternative. Just replace or repair the solenoid.

Sometimes it won't start, just clicks. replaced the starter and the battery. power gets to the starter, so don't think it's the ignition switch.


if your power going to starter from ignition switch ,your starter has to be faulty or main wires on starter has bad connection

My car isn't turning over I think it's either the starter or the battery. Isn't the positive battery cable connected to the starter? All I hear is a clicking sound when I turn it over and it...


Hello and welcome to FixYa!
If that's the case then the starter is surely faulty that's why you hear a tick sound but be sure that the battery has a good charge. If the battery is strong and it still fails to start then surely is a starter problem. But if it starts on a new battery then the old battery is worn out and needs replacement.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

It sounds like you need a new starter. If you hear the starter click when you turn the key to start, replace your starter since you already replaced the battery. You might want to have your alternator checked out, or when you get your car started, test the battery terminals with a multimeter. You should have around 14 volts with the car running. If not, you will need a new alternator. The alternator won't keep the car from starting though, unless the battery was drained because it wasn't charged. Even then it is the battery keeping the car from starting.

If the starter is not clicking, check your fuses under the hood. If all checks out, you may have a bad ignition switch.
