Hi
The clicking noise you hear is the starter solenoid that switches power to the starter motor. The fact it is clicking indicates that everything up to the solenoid is working. A few things to check

  1. be sure that all connections to the battery and earth to the chassis are secure and free from corrosion
  2. check the terminations at the solenoid and starter motor to be sure that that they are ok. 
  3. If you can meter 12 volts getting to the starter, would point to the starter failing. May need the brushes replaced. 
To help you troubleshoot the problem, here is a Service Manual for the bike you can download for free. Just enter the 3 letters as requested at the top of the screen.  Happy to talk to you more about the problem. Thanks for using FixYa. Hope you get is sorted out.
regards robotek

1996 GMC Yukon will not start after hearing intermittent clicking noise while running


Sounds like you lost the serpentine belt, which runs the alternator. When you heard the ticking sound, did you notice if the battery light came on, Check the belt and fully charge the battery. Do not jump a dead battery. Wear safety glasses when servicing a battery, an explosion and acid hazard exist

Won't start but can hear starter make a click noise when trying to start with key


will it start with a jump ? if it does replace the battery and have the charging system tested, if it will not start with a jump then most likely you will need to replace the starter.

My interior lights turn on everything works its just my engine wont turn over it sounds like a clicking noise


Battery is weak or bad. The clicking noise is the starter solenoid and is a result of...not enough power in the battery.

I have a 51 plate ford fiesta that has not started since the cold weather we have had. It makes a clicking noise on ignition and the dashboard lights up but the car will not start. do you know what is...


I would try and jump start the car -- it sounds like the battery might be bad or low on voltage ( due to the cold or age ). if jumping the car works - make sure you test to make sure the alternator is charging properly.
plus this also could be a bad soleniod or starter motor --- but try the jump start first or a new battery.

Car will not start


Sounds like your battery is low, try charging it up once! Sometimes if your battery is low the alternator needs replaced but i would charge it up first or jump start it. And have Walmart do a check on your electrical system. They check it for free.
Good luck!

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.
