The clicking sound is a bad battery. If it was the starter not engaging, you would hear it spin or the wire would heat up and smoke.... The battery should be trickle charged and then checked to see if the starting power is good. Even if the batery charges, it may not have enough amps to turn the srter over. A bad battery wil also damage a starter. Make sure the battery is fully charged and proper amps to make sure it will srart your motor. Hope this helps. TOM

Turn key, makes clicking noise but not start.


Double check your battery connections. If the battery is new and the starter makes a series of clicking noises when the key is held in the start position than you are not getting a good power supply to the starter or there is not a sufficient ground.

1979 XLS Sportster won't start, I took all the


The thing that looks like a small solenoid on the bottom of the oil tank is the starter relay. It has three terminals on it. One terminal should be red wire and should have battery voltage on it when you turn the switch on. One wire should come from the start button and the other should go to the small terminal on the starter solenoid. Contact me directly at wd4ity@bellsouth.net. I'll send you a schematic that shows how it's supposed to be wired. Look on the solenoid and see if you see some small numbers around each of the electrical connections. Also, the bolts that hold the relay on act as a ground. If you had the oil tank painted, you may not have a good ground connection on it.

Good Luck

STARTER WONT ENGAGE ONLY CLICKS UNDER HOOD STATER


If the clicking sound is coming from the engine bay, from the relay, you may want to have the starter itself checked out. You need to check if the ground cable from the engine to the chassis is secured. If that is OK, you may want to have the starter motor checked.
