Generally, this problem is the sign of an undercharged battery. Take a multitester, which should cost less than ten bucks, see how many volts your battery is providing by testing across the poles, on the 20 volt DC range -- red to positive, black to negative. You should see at least 11.5 volts. If you are not reading that much, the battery will not provide enough power to start the motor but will just have enough power to make the starter solenoid click. If you have a battery charger, see if the battery will charge higher. If it will not, your battery must be replaced. As an extra test, when you have the new battery or the recharged battery hooked up, and the engine running, you can make the same test and you should see about 13.2 volts. If you don't get that much, your charging system, i.e., your alternator, is going bad. You can get an auto electric shop to test it and maybe rebuild it at a lower cost than buying a new one. BTW, two things. Batteries tend to go bad fairly quickly, so you could be good one day and next day have a weak battery. And, solenoids do go bad but only rarely.

Aurora 4.0 im stumped checked starer relay and car still wont start clicking ssound comin from backseat jumped it whats wrong


What year vehicle ? The clicking sound you hear from bake seat is probably a relay ! There is a fuse / relay box under the back seat ! How did you check the starter relay ? Just pull it out an look at it ? Was it #36 START 1 Relay
-- Starter Solenoid and PCM in the under hood fuse / relay Box ?
This relay is computer energized - PCM supply's a ground to circuit 447 which energizes the relay sending voltage to the starter S terminal engaging the starter . Do you have a test light or a volt ohm meter ? If you pull out the starter relay an look on the bottom you will see some numbers , 85,86 an 30,87 . match them up to the holes they came out of . Check out this video on YouTube ,you can check for voltage an computer control . Is the SECRUITY light lit on the dash ?

94ford probe won't start


Well Sandra , the thing to do would be to get it to turn the engine over with the key , Then diagnose the no start problem . Look at a wiring diagram (do you know what that is ?) When you turn the key to start , the electrical part of the ignition switch sends B+ voltage to the starter interrupter relay through the clutch switch to the starter motor solenoid . Testing the electrical circuit with a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter with the help of a wiring diagram ,so you know where to test is the proper way to diagnose the problem . Not guessing ,an rigging the stuff . You can find free wiring diagrams here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html

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 will not start. Brand new starter, wire to starter test good, good battery relay tested good. Why won't it start?


Is the ignition switch good? If the starter/solenoid; starter relay, battery and cables are all good that is about the only thing left.

Do you hear a click when you turn the switch?

Getting a clicking noise when trying to start my er6f , the bike fails to start


Hi and welcome to the site,

Initially, have the battery externally charged and load tested.

Offhand, check / replace the starter relay. As a test, bypasss the starter relay by momentarily jumping the 2 big terminals to spin the starter motor. If the starter motor spins, then starter relay most likely faulty.

Good luck and thank you for asking.
