Removing the starter is a big job that require removing the primary and clutch basket to get at the bolts that hold the starter in. You can remove the solenoid with out removing the starter and rebuild it, this is most likely where the problem is. Going into all the steps here would take to much typing. You can buy a manuel on line or at the dealer for about $60.00, or check with your local library that's where I get one when I need it.

Will not start starter makes click-click-click noises, battery fine, starter fine , starter relay fine, battery connections and starter connections are clean and still keep doing click-click-click noises...


We'd need to know more about how you have assessed these components, but something in that chain is still faulty. The symptoms you describe are classic, the sound of the starter solenoid pulling in, and arise almost always from

- a dying battery which cannot hold a full charge, but which can still pull in the starter solenoid, run the radio etc, but not crank the motor
- worn starter solenoid main contacts which cannot close the supply circuit from battery to starter motor
- a dead segment in the starter motor armature which is preventing it from rotating
- a bad ground, usually between motor body and chassis

You have mentioned all these things I know, but that click-click is a first step which still points the same way..

One way to narrow it is to try jump starting your motor from a known good battery or another car with running motor, taking precautions to avoid frying your electronics. If it starts, it is a bad battery you have. If it just clicks, then one of the other causes.

WHEN I TURN THE KEY JUST CLICKS HAS NEW STARTER NEW SOLENOID NEW BATTERY


Is your new battery fully charged? Maybe you need to go slow with a step-by-step process.

The most common cause of a non-starting car is the battery. It is either weak, (low voltage) dead, (zero voltage) or has bad connections. (corroded or loose) I will assume you have a fully charged battery with good connections. (both to battery and starter relay)
If you remove the starter switch lead (small wire) from the starter relay and apply +12v from the battery to its respective prong or lead on the relay, and your starter cranks, your starter switch is faulty. (not to be confused with your key switch). If you jump the two large wires together on the relay and it cranks, then the relay is faulty. If you jump the two large wires together and nothing happens, then starter is faulty, or wires to starter are loose or broken. Picture of starter switch prong on the relay is pictured. NOTE: sparks are to be expected, so don't be too scared.

My starter has for shims on it an it started good for a day now starter just spin when i turn the key on a 1983 buick regal


If your 1983 Buick Regal has a good battery but makes a clicking noise and will not start, you should check and make sure its getting spark, check your starter, also check your battery connections, and the starter cables.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How do i know if it is the starter that is causing the clicking sound?


The solenoid makes the clicking noises on the starter. If the battery connections are clean and tight and still have that clicking noise you need a new starter solenoid

When trying to start 2000 Jetta, the relay clicks but Engine does not crank. Removed the battery and connected the battery cables to another car (which was running). Relays click a little bit more rapidly...


Sounds like a flat battery, it will have enough power to kick in the starter solenoid [the clicking noise] but not enough to turn engine over. Best to fit a battery that you know is good into the vehicle. If the fault still persists the starter could be faulty. To check the starter bridge the main battery power terminal [30] on the starter solenoid and the smaller terminal [50] also on the solenoid [power from ignition switch]. The starter should turn. MAKE SURE VEHICLE IS IN NEUTRAL WHEN DOING THIS AND TAKE CARE NOT TO BRIDGE POWER CABLES TO STARTER HOUSING.

Have you checked the oil in the crankcase, is it full ?

Bad battery connection or loose wire.Clicking noise is a relay not getting enough or intermitant power from the battery

Car won't start


Clean both the battery terminals. The battery can be perfect but if the terminals are corroded you will get the clicking sound indicating that there is not enough power going into starter to start car.
