Starter motor wont engage checked brushes and movement small what i persume soleniod attached the side of starter just clicks

Alot of the time a clicking sound indicates a dead battery. It happens when there isn't enough power to fully engage the starter but just enough to engage solenoid. I would check your battery and all connections, including ground wires, battery wires and solenoid wires. Take a wire brush to them and clean them up and reinstall them. If that doesn't work, remove your starter and bench test it by hooking up a good battery to the lead that solenoid goes to and ground the other. If it passes the bench test your solenoid probably needs replaced. If it fails the problem is in your starter. Good luck! FYI, remove battery leads while removing starter and other wires for safety when cleaning.

Can you turn the engine by hand ?
Is the battery fully charged and connections good between battery and starter ? During hot weather a battery can develop a dead cell which will cause it to have 12 volts but no cranking power.

My 1993 Buick Park Avenue just Clicks once when you turn the key on starter won't engage the battery is fine

Sounds like a bad starter or a bad battery cable connection to me. If you are certain that tyour battery is in good condition and fully charged, your battery cables are clean and tight and are making good connection on BOTH ends, replace the starter.

Hi, I had a start problem with my celica. tried to turn the car over and a constant clicking sound was made, however all lights were on and the radio was working.. thought possible starter problem,...

The problem is that your battery is extremely low. The repeated clicking sound is your starter relay trying to engage, then releasing again when the starter takes the remaining voltage available to try to turn. When the relay disengages, the starter can no longer take any voltage at all, so the relay again engages and the process starts over. This results in "CLICK, CLICK, CLICK, CLICK...." There simply is not enough power available to operate both the relay and the starter.

Your alarm system doesn't have enough voltage to function properly. It "thinks" that someone is trying to steal your car or is messing with your battery cables. It doesn't know the difference between low voltage from a dead battery and low voltage from somebody disconnecting wires. It is simply responding to the low voltage condition as it is designed to do. Fix the voltage problem and you will fix your security system. No need to reset anything.

Jump-start the car or replace the battery and get your charging system checked to make sure everything is functioning properly. It is possible that the battery is good but you have a bad alternator and the battery is low because it is not being charged.

Turn the key just a clicking sound all warnings flash !! wont turnover

This sounds like a duf battery, try another charged battery on the car, not with jump leads as a dead battery will sap power. If still the same with another battery I would have starter checked as the only other clicking noise can be a solenoid kicking in but not engaging the starter, Cheers good luck
