When i try to start my 1995 lexus gs 300, i only hear a clicking sound under the hood. what is the problem?

The clicking you can hear is the solenoid on the starter motor clicking but the actual starter motor it's self is not turning, This could be due to a poor earth connection between the motor and battery, A discharged battery or a defective starter motor, You need to have an auto electrician check your battery voltage/current and if they are ok it will be your starter motor that is at fault, Also check to make sure the connections to the starter motor are tight as they can shake loose.

My car wont start battery is not dead,but wont turn over?

if the battery is fine check if you hear a clicking noise coming from the starter motor when you turn the key to try and start the engine.
If you hear this noise then this is a good indication that the selenoid has failed meaning you need to replace the starter motor.

You can give the starter motor a hit with a piece of wood as some times this will get the starter motor working just to start the car but this isnt a permanent fix and could leave you stuck if you used the car.

Now if the starter motor isnt clicking but you hear a clicking noise coming from either the cars fuse box or the ecu when you turn the key to start the car then this would indicate a problem with the imobiliser this would need testing using a diagnostic machine as their is no other way of testing this to find out if its at fault.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

When i press the start buttom it's not doing anything just i hear a click sound coming out from where the fuse is., so i got use foot starter. hanks if anyone knows what it could be...

The sound your hearing is proberbly the click of the starter solinoid.
Nothing else happens hay?
This sounds like your starter motor is faulty!
To do a quick test try placing a jumper lead from your Battery POSATIVE straight to the starter motor cable.(there may be a spark but don't be too scared). Hold there for a couple of seconds.
If you don't hear the starter motor spin you have a shot starter motor.

This should help

All the lights will come on but wont start or turn over checked wires and fuses and changed starter relay what elese could it be

Can you hear the starter solenoid clicking when you try to start? If not, the problem is likely a worn out ignition switch. If you hear clicking, check for 12.6 volts at the starter motor terminal when trying to start. If you get voltage, the motor itself is dead--probably bad brushes inside the case. Most people just replace the starter with a rebuilt one. Hope this helps!

Volvo 2.0 S40cd 1996 . Battery not flat but won't start , ignition lights flashing , engine won't turn over . Lights ok and central locking ok . tried to jump start from another vehicle but no effect .

hi, the problem you are having sounds like the starter motor has packed up if when you turn the key you get nothing or you might even hear a faint click, if you open the bonnet then get someone to turn the key you might hear a faint click coming from the starter motor. This click indicates the starter motor needs replacing.

you could try hitting the starter motor with a hammer give it a few good hard hits this might get the starter motor working for a while if not then it needs replacing at once if it works then this isnt a permanent fix so be warned.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Doesn't start, hear a clicking sound

Red to red, then black to black. Negative is always off first and on last! If it doesnt turn over even by jumping, the clicking is your starter solenoid = starter motor possibly defective. One way of trying to start it, is to tap the starter motor while trying to turn the engine on. Not 100% garanteed but 7/10 times worked for me rescuing people!

2000 olds intrigue will not crank

you have 3 choices.
1) Bad battery
2)Starter motor solenoid is inoperative or starter motor itself is inoperative
3) your engine is locked up
How old is your battery and are the connections to the starter motor good?
Do you hear a clicking noise when you try to start the engine?
Do you have a clunk noise when you try to start it?

If dirty connections then clean the terminals andtry to start engine.
Clicking noise means starter solenoid is picking up but starter motor is disunctional and needs replacement.
If the noise is a clunk then your engine is locked up for whatever reason.
Last but not least if you hear the starter motor runningand a metalic grinding then the star is bad on the starter motor which means replacement of same.
