Chances are that the click you hear is the solenoid.. Try bridging the two terminals and if it turns its the solenoid. If Nada its the starter motor...good luck

SOURCE: How do I know if my starter relay is bad on my 04 Gsxr 1000

Place a volt meter on to the starter side of the relay, It should show 12v or more when the button is pressed, The clicking can be low voltage, so make sure the battery is good and all cable connections are clean and tight. If you put the volt meter across the battery and it drops below 12-11.5 volts when you hit the start button it is probably the battery

Check for an in-line fuse for the started solenoid. Will the starter turn if you take a jump to the solenoid pull-in terminal?

SOURCE: when hit the start button the starter wines then a click,click from the solenoid.

before you replace the starter, check to see if you can jump start (or turn it over) by connecting the + term on the battery to the + on the relay. next check the connectors in the starter switch to make sure they are making good connection. if not THEN it's the starter.

How do i know if my starter in my 1986 crown vic works

if the engine turns over when cranking its working. you don`t say what the actual problem is. at the starter on the large terminal you should have battery voltage all the time. on the small terminal you should have battery voltage only when trying to start the car. if you do have power here then while trying to start the car tap the starter if it attempts to turn over the starter is no good. if you don`t have power at the small terminal then you will have to check for power at the solenoid/relay on the inner fender on the drivers side on the S wire when trying to start the car. this wire feeds battery voltage to the starter on the small terminal, if you don`t the solenoid/relay is bad. if you do then you will have to check for a damaged wire from the solenoid/relay to the starter. sometimes the starter motor could have a bad ground connection were it bolts up to the engine.

2003 ford explorer wont start hear a click under the hood, i tried to jump it and it wont start. do u think it needs a starter?

Go under the car and have a helper hold the key in the start position while you probe the wire to the solenoid for 12 volts, also do a voltage test on the positive battery cable and inspect it at the battery for acid intrusion near the positive battery post clamp, if acid has gotten into the cable the outer insulation will appear swollen and the cable must be replaced, this is a common cause of no starts on Explorers.

Car doesnt want to start. all lights come on when in the on position however when I turn it to start nothing happens it dont even try to turn over it just clicks 2002 hyundai xg350

The starting system consists of:
  • starter motor
  • starter switch, part of the ignition switch
  • starter motor solenoid relay switch
  • starter solenoid
  • starter drive
When you turn your key to start your engine, it just clicks, right? If so, more than likely this is due to a bad battery. Even though your battery may appear to be fully charged, it may have a dead cell, or worse. If you get a jump, does the vehicle start? If so, replace your battery.

Possible sources of the problem if the engine does not crank or the relay clicks:
  1. Battery
  2. Starter motor
  3. Starter motor relay
  4. Ignition switch
  5. Damaged fuse
  6. Anti-theft system
  7. Circuitry

Is there a starter relay mounted on the fender well/wall.The jeep is all of the sunden not starting.There is plenty of power and then u turn the key and all dead is what you get.I can hear a clicking like...

yes, there is a starter relay, usually somewhere in the engine compartment. If that is clicking, the problem could be the solenoid. You could verify the solenoid is bad by trying test 2 of my post at . Let me know if you have questions.

Freelander unable to start at turn of key,

Does the starting solenoid engages? This is would sound like a deep clunk on your starter. When the solenoid engages it close the contact that energize the starter motor, but a worn contact on the solenoid would result in it engaging but not having enough current to turn the engine resulting in a clunking noise when you try to start.
The starter solenoid gets its 12 volt from a relay. This is referred to as the starter relay. If you try to crank, and you hear only a click but the starter do not turn, then the contacts on the relay maybe worn.
To sum it up, if you hear a loud clunk when it dont crank, its the starter solenoid. If you hear just a click but no crank, it could be the starter relay.

There are two ways to hook up an immobilizer on a car. One is to break the continuity of the ignition system power suplly. This would result in an engine that cranks but wont start. Another way is to break the continuity of the starting relay. If an installer knows what he is doing he would wire it so that the relay wont get power to the coil. This would result in a car that don't even click when you turn the key so I doubt it is the immobilizer. If the starting relay clicks, the contacts on the relay might be worn out, and not getting enough current to drive the solenoid. One way to check this is by using a volt meter. And check to see if there are voltages going to the starter solenoid, when the key is turned. It should be almost the same as battery voltage. If the voltage going there are no voltage going to the solenoid, or the voltage going there is low, for exmple 8 volts then the contact on the relay is bad. Remember this is if the relay clicks. If the click is loud, and coming from the starter itself but it wont turn, replace the starter, that means the starter solenoid is bad, or if you can buy just the solenoid it maybe cheaper, but you have to know how to take a starter apart, I dont recommend that tho. Good luck these should solve the problem.

What can it be

I have both a Stealth, and a 3000GT, so I guess you could say that know a bit about the platform. this sounds like one of three possible things.
  • Starter
  • Starter relay (in that funny shaped box behind the passenger side headlight)
  • "click click start" or maybe loose trigger wire at the starter
If you know anyone with a 3000, try to borrow their starter relay, it is about a 10 second swap, and you will know very quickly if it is the problem.

If the starter solenoid isn't even clicking, I am leaning heavily towards either a completely disconnected trigger wire, or a bad starter. If it is clicking, then it is most likely click click start

click click start occurs because Mitsu, in their infinite wisdom put a wire to the starter (the trigger wire) which was BARELY sized large enough to carry enough current to activate the solenoid on the starter, over time, and corrosion, the wire becomes too thin to carry enough current, so it does not fully engage the solenoid... the solution is to install a relay at the starter so the trigger wire closes the circuit in the relay from the hot power side of the relay to the trigger. The hot power side of the relay is ALWAYS on, and the wire is big enough to carry enough amperage. Thats the way I did it, you can also put the relay up by the battery, here are instructions for doing it this way, personally, I like the relay down tie-wrapped to the starter myself.
