The clicking sound you hear is the starter relay and it is most likely the problem. To confirm this, find the relay and use a large screwdrive to bridge the two big cables that are attached to the top of it. If the starter spins when you do this, then you've got a bad starter relay. If the starter does not spin, then either the starter is bad, or the wiring going to it is broken or corroded.

I have a 1998 Goldwing SE. I was out riding it last Saturday. While coming up the interstate it just shut down like I had hit the emergency kill button, which I hadn't done. I rolled to a stop and checked the kill button which it was on. The lights was on and everything is on as it should be but it will not turn over. I can turn the key on and bridge across the starter solenoid and the motor will turn over but still will not hit. Any clues?

1989 nissan pickup 4 cylinder when i turn the key to crank the engine i hear a click sound at the starter what could the click sound be?


could be battery . It needs a huge amount of charge to turn over the starter motor. It may work the headlights but be unable to turn the starter motor.
Suggest get battery tested at a battery seller to see if battery is really ok .
The click is most likely the solenoid on the starter motor clicking on.
You might be able to get someone to run jumper leads
Note +ve to + ve and negative to negative !
from their car while the engine is running and their car is not moving !
Wait 10 minutes
Then try to crank over your car engine .

I jump started a 4wd vehicle a month ago from my car and it took about 10 minutes to get enough charge in it to crank over the engine !

Why is my jeep not starting, no turn over but clicking


automatic transmission? mine a stick. and different.
ok.
does it crank in neutral as the operators guide states?
not just park, neutral has fresher contacts, try them.
clean battery lugs first.

here is the list of tests, (not guessing !)
  1. fuses all good,
  2. battery charged? does jumper cables work now?
  3. if jumper cables cranks engine then battery is bad or only discharged (for other reasons, ask)
  4. if jumper fail, the starter or key line is dead.
  5. we hot wire the starter next. if it cranks now starter is good.
  6. if the hot wire fails, starter is bad(battery charged )
  7. i the starter hot wires ok that key line is dead.
  8. i then check the P/N park neutral switch next (ask)
  9. or further up the line to the ign. switch.
  10. (or use a scan tool) the newer cars can report more errors. not looking , here, you can miss the boat.

Car clicks but wont start


the alternator lamp will not go out until the engine runs..
the alt converts engine horse power to electric power,
no engine, no alt.
so that means the engine will not start, or better it wont crank
subzero C or Subzero F.,, -10F or -10C, vastly different temps.
???????
no crank, then jumper cable crank it with donor car running.
crank now,?
yes , then battery is bad,weak or just discharged.
no, then starter bad, or key line bad.
hot wire starter solenoid. cranks now, is bad key line
if not, bad starter.

did you wiggle the shifter at crank.
did you wiggle key. extra.
did you try crankiing in neutral using fresh start contacts.>... yah.

Engine cranks but won't start. No headlights or tail lights domelights or under hood lights


Check all your fuses. The fuse for your fuel pump,. If fuse is ok, Turn key onto the acc position and listen for your fuel pump. You should hear it hum. You also have fuel relays, but I'm still wondering why you are blowing fuses for all that together. May be a bad ground or direct short. Check fuses then get back to me please. and dont forget to rate my solution thanks

2001 jeep cherokee sport will not crank


But those are ignition parts. If the car won't crank, there is a problem between the battery, ignition switch, and the starter.
Try this, Darren: With key on, does your dash light up, gauges working and check engine light on? Turn key to start. Do you hear a click form the area of the starter? If you hear the starter solenoid click, and you know the battery is charged up good, then likely the starter is out, and needs to be taken off for testing or replacement. But that is assuming that the battery cables and their.connections are good and allowing full battery power to the starter.
If you hear no click in start, turn the headlights on and watch their intensity while someone turns key to crank. If the lights dim noticeably and no cranking, then the starter is bad or needs testing. If the lights don't change intensity when key is at crank position, then possibly the starter solenoid is bad or the circuit from ignition switch to the starter solenoid is not allowing current to pass. Take off the small wire (brown, I think) from the starter solenoid and see if it has power when key is in crank position. If it has power, the starter has to come off-it or the solenoid is bad. If no power on the solenoid wire with key in crank, then the circuit from ignition switch to the solenoid will have to be checked. There are at least a couple of components in that path- one is the starter relay, another is the neutral safety switch (or clutch switch on manuals). Also if no power on the solenoid wire, check the 30 amp fuse in the power distribution center by the battery. It may be fuse # 10, at least it is on a '97 Jeep. Heck, check all your fuses while you're at it.
Good luck.

My 2006 buick lacrosse wont start radio and lights work but its not saying nothing when i try to crank it


Hello! Do you hear a click when the key is turned?...If no click is heard either the ignition key, the Crank relay, the starter, or the battery are suspect...Having lights and radio does not mean the battery is capable of running a starter motor......Put a meter on the battery...should read 12.5 volts...Turn key...Does voltage drop to 8 or 9 volts? Bad battery...If all is well with battery and connections to it...Check the starter fuse # 33 in the under hood fuse/relay box...If the fuse is good that click you should hear is from the Crank Relay in that box...If all of the above is OK connect your meter to the Purple wire that is connected to the starter motor...When the key is turned 12 volts must be on that wire...If there is the starter motor is defective...So, #1...Do you hear a click when key is turned...That would point at a bad starter or weak battery...#2...If you do not hear a click bad fuse #33, bad Crank Relay, bad ignition switch...#3...If fuse is good Bad Crank Relay or Ignition switch; Crank Relay is a low cost item ($10)...Replace Relay...Stop there and send a comment as to results...Guru...saailer

2004 KIA RIO-ENGINE WILL NOT CRANK


I would guess starter fuse first, then starter. When you turn key, if you don't hear a click, you should focus your attention on the fuse first and then the starter. If you hear a click, then most likely (80%) its the starter solenoid. try to start the car in neutral to rule out the neutral safety switch...good luck
