If it is making a clicking noise the battery could be a little low. If the battery tests fine, the contacts in the relay are starting to go bad. The last relay I bought ran me around $50 bucks.

Start relay locations


Hi Anonymous, when you are trying to diagnois anything in the starter circuit you must start with a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or better and will pass a load test of 9 volts or better while cranking the engine over and the cable connections are clean and tight especially the negative cable at both ends. If you suspect a faulty starter relay just swap it with your horn, brake, or system/fuel pump relay, if the bike starts with no problems replace the bad relay. When checking anything in the starter circuit you must make sure the battery connections are clean and tight especially the negative cable at both ends and has a 12.5 volt or better charge. It must not fall below 9 volts during the cranking procedure with a volt meter hooked up. If it does fall below 9 volts do a proper load test on the battery and replace if necessary. Second replace the starter relay cheap $6 and make sure it's well grounded and getting 11.5 volts or better to activate. Third remove the back cover of the starter solenoid and de-arc/refurbish the contact plate and shoes making sure they are tight. If it still chatters replace the solenoid. Good luck

Starter chattering away, will not crank engine.


One last test before pulling the starter off to test it. Do a voltage drop test on your positive cable. If you don't know how, go to youtube and watch videos. Just remember, this test only works when current is being passed through a wire or cable, so you will need a helper to hold key in start. This test will tell you if you are losing voltage anywhere between the positive battery post and the cable connection on the starter. If you are getting no loss of voltage at the starter, then it is time to pull the starter off. You can also test the ground cable for any fault.

Suzuki sidekick 1997 Sport 1.8 liter manual transmission AC power steering. Will start intermittently.


Have you checked coil/coils. Some Suzuki have two coils. When it is on way out it will start itermittenly until finally it won't start at all. Can go on for sometime doing this. I believe coil relays power to starter. Coil
fault often attributed to starter in correctly. Hope this helps.

95 dodge neon, i just replaced the battery, and brain box (computer box) it started up then a few hours later tried it and now all it does is make a weird sound not a clicking like a starter would but a...


Darn, just sold my '95 neon. I never had to bother with the electronics, it always worked. That da da noise sounds like must come from some relay. Come to think of it, Chrysler makes had a kind of "main relay" called the Auto Shutdown Relay or ASD relay. It's purpose was as a main relay for sending power to necessary things to keep the engine running-like power to the ignition coil, and power to the fuel injectors, and to the fuel pump. This relay is triggered or controlled by the computer.
If you have a relay chattering and it is not a bad relay, then could also be a poor positive battery connection, or even a poor ground too. If that chattering sound is from the starter solenoid (on the starter motor), then you either have a weak battery or a poor connection ... or a bad solenoid.

Bike will not start. New battery. Starter will not chatter. Checked fuses OK.


You didn't say what year or model bike but it's got a starter relay on it somewhere. It's a one inch black plastic cube plugged into a socket. Try replacing it. They're not terribly expensive.

2004 JEEP LIBERTY. BATTERY GOOD. THE CAR WILL NOT TURN OVER. IT SOUNDS LIKE IT IS COMMING FROM FUSE BOX UNDER HOOD


I assume you are hearing a starter Relay/solenoid chattering. That's usually caused by:

A dead battery.

A loose connection on Battery or start relay/solenoid.

Bad connection at starter or bad starter.

Good Luck

I was trying to start my car tonight, and it woouldnt turn over. I have all my lights so I know that it is not the alternator or the battery, could it be my starter?


Could be low battery. Did you hear a chattering sound when you tried to start it? Normal battery voltage fully charged is actually over 13 volts. Try to jump start it. If you don't get a response out of it, then check your fuses. Check engine bay fuses (under the hood) and interior fuses (inside the car-drivers side) Also could be starting relay. have a second person turn the key and you listen for a relay under the hood. If the IGN relay does not pull in, hten you either have a bad fuse, or bad relay or bad ignition keyswitch or bad transmission neutral position switch. if relay pulls in and then chatters, it does not have enough voltage to stay pulled in and attempt to run the starter motor at the same time, which is why it will make that fast clicky-clicky noise. if it does pull in and nothing happens then your starter is either bad or not connected electrically.

2001 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2 Battery died and Replaced also Starter still no start just loud click from new starter and does not turn over engine but can be push started by pop clutch and runs fine


Assuming you replaced the solenoid with the starter, it may be the relay. If the relay is not making a good connection, it might have trouble throwing the solenoid. The relay should be in the relay box under the hood. You can break the relay open and watch it work while someone turns the key to verify the problem.
