The car won't turn over at all. When I go to turn it on the panel lights up then when i turn the key the panel goes off for a second and you hear the click noise then the panel returns but the car does not start at all or even acts like it is going to start. I tried the other suggestion of pulling on the fan belt while the car is in neutral and that did nothing. Do you have any other suggestions??

Re: clicking noise...car won't start
Well if when turning the the key and you get a flashing dash lights that tells me that your ignition module is bad. i would also check the connections under the dash you could have a shoryt or a few loose wires.

sounds like a dead battery ---turn on dome light and turn key to start if dome light goes out or dims very low than battery needs boost or replacement--if light not affected check ignition system -key -not worn down(didnt specify yr and vehicle)relays fuses and connections to starter and starter itself-------also have starter checked may be have short
have somebody hit the starter with a hammer while somebody turns the key on the start position as he holds the key keep hitting the starter not at the solenoid at the round part if it tries to start then you have a defective starter now if you have a alarm system you are going to have tutoo isolate the starter to do a different test.
It is normal for the cluster to do that, it is doing its doing a self check on the cluster. What else happens when you turn the key, dose it make a clicking noise or does all the light go dim? Need more info?
