Question about 2000 Chevrolet Venture

1 Answer

When I turn the key it just clicks

The battery is new so I have eliminated that possibility 1st. For the last 2 weeks we have noticed the cranking sounding weaker and weaker. Now it doesn't even turn over it just clicks.

The battery may have just been replaced, but have you checked the voltage lately?

This sounds like it may have a charging problem.

First, put the battery on a slow charger over night, and see if it will start the next morning.
If it sounds strong, but get weaker after running for a while, you'll want to check the output of the alternator.

You can take your Venture to a local autoparts store, and ask them to run a charging check for you.

83 cj7 new starter and solenoid, can hear solenoid click, also noticed there are burnt spots on the inside of distributer. no crank or start. can anyone help


Check battery connections and make sure battery has a good charge. Possible cable ends are dirty. remove from battery and clean. Do headlights come on if you turn on switch? Burned contacts in dist cap are signs of wear. ( normal ). I would recommend replacement before you have a drivability issue. If solenoid is clicking, it sounds like a poor connection

Can my battery amps be causing my 2004 dodge status not to crank? Its abattery.


the cold cranking amps rating can be found on the battery sticker. the higher the number the better it is since amperage is the flow of current and will withstand longer battery use by all electrical and electronic components on a car. amperage of a battery is also affected by temperature so if the battery cca rating is low and you live in cold weather it will cause slow cranking. your starter is only as good as the voltage and amperage contained within your battery. so start with a good battery before condemning a starter.

Hyundai accent 2008 starting issue. I wanted to post this to help others Mentally & financially as this is one of those things I could have spent hundreds on. Instead my dealer said you can throw parts at it & hope, or wait to an error code revealed itself. In the previous month I had replaced all belts, plugs & battery as I'm at 130000k & just paid it off. Ironically a week after my last car payment .this starting issue began, Get in ,drive to a store ...get back in to go home no start. Timing belt was just replaced...not timing1 Plugs just replaced...not plugs. Plenty of crank ,,new battery. Starter turns 2 or 3 cylinders fire & quits. What the F---!Take to the dealer...mechanic says it can be 1 of 4 things but of course starts there for him every time. Serviceicon1.png desk guy says to wait for error code to show up. Well 2 frustrated months later same problem & no code. However he also had asked if Id seen an error code of a key inside a car stay lit on my dash, if so it meant a fault in the key reader, After being stuck twice in one day last Friday I decided to pull my plugs and check for loose or whatever. Long story short after putting all back together,,,same problem!!! Yet it finally came to me ...YES there really is an answer. As I turned the key I started focusing on the dash and what lights came on .1st turn Acc,,,2nd turn about 5 things light up including a pic of a key inside a car,,3rd turn of the key cranks the starter & turns over the engine. Well ,,,it finally occurred to me on turn 2 that one of the lighted pics was missing...you guessed it,,,little key in car. So I kept turning from key from 1 to 2 for lights on dash until it finally lit up an when it did I turned the key to start & it did. Shut it off & tried again but noticed pic missing and car didn't start, I had been waiting all these months for this **** pic to show up as an error code on my dash but the problem was ...sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't so because it hadn't faulted yet no permanent error code could be read. However now I know I need a new key reader because so long as that pic appears on the dash in 2nd key turn ,my car has no issue, when pics not there it isn't starting. Hope this helps others diagnose this simple yet frustrating problem, life's simpler when you know what to look for.

Astro van won't start


Do you notice crank when you turn over the key in ignition to start. Does it turn over but does not start, or no start nothing at all. ---------- If its not cranking and nothing happens when you turn the key, then its battery and starter related problem, both needs to be inspected.Either battery is not completely charged or its weak battery,that is not holding charge or its faulty battery or its connections are loose.-------- BUT if it is cranking and not starting, this clears that battery has juice in it and battery is doing its job and other possibilities needs to be checked. -------- The other possibilities are ,is the fuel pump coming on when you turn the key to start,is the spark is noticed at spark plug, is the check engine light coming ON.

Last week, my 1998 Lexus ES300 wouldn't start (clicking sound) and I thought it was the battery. I jump started it but noticed that it still made the clicking sound, for my first couple of tries, it did...


If car wont start and clicking sound is heard this is a battery related or starter related, if your car battery is in good condition (which I think it was) then the problem is your starter, have it check to confirm.
