Won't start. plenty of juice. Won't start, even with a jump. Very rapid clicking and all dash lights strong.

The clicking sound indicates that there is insufficient charge reaching the starter motor to turn over the engine. If you have enough charge going into the starter, use a multi-meter to check, test at no load and under load. Then check your terminals on the battery and starter to ensure all are clean and tightened properly.

My Volkswagen golf won't start tried jumping it and the lights turn on but even then doesn't start but when ever I turn the key over I hear a rapid clicking sound now my guess was a starter but when we...

I suspect you have a loose or poor connection of the battery cable or ground connection or bad cables. The rapid clicking is the starter solenoid, and it clicks because it is not getting enough current from the battery to energize and turn the starter. Make certain the battery is good, and charged, clean and tighten the battery terminals, check the cables, check the connection at ground and at the starter. I hope this helps steer you to the solution.

When I turn the key to start the engine, the engine does not crank and there is a loud, rapid clicking sound. I'm certain it has to do with the starter or solenoid, but can't recall my high school...

Pop the bonnet and check your battery terminals, most likely you are not getting enough charge from your battery, if they are loose, tighten them, if this doesn't work you will need to charge your battery.

When I turn the key I get a rapide clicking sound

Check your ground wire for battery where it connects to your frame.

Also check/clean the connections where the positive wire goes to the starter solenoid. Any connection you run into from the battery, clean them off with a wire brush or sandpaper.

Starter Solenoid can also be failing/dead, these can be tested for free at most auto part stores if you remove them from the vehicle.

Wont start funny clicking sound when i turn the key ???


The clicking you are hearing, is the sound of a weak battery, Jump start the vehicle and take it to an AutoZone for a Charging System check.

Good Luck!!

Turned the key to start the car but got a rapid clicking sound

this is common this time of year with the seasons changing.The clicking is the result of low battery voltage/amps and it's the starter clicking but not turning over the motor.
It's got to be either the battery is getting old and needs to be changed or there is something preventing it from charging, OR it's dirty battery terminals.
Check the battery connections to make sure they are clean, corrosion free and snug. If they are dirty, get a battery terminal cleaning brush and clean the battery top, and terminals.. be cautious because the acid is highly corrosion and will not only burn your skin but it can eat holes in your clothes...
You can neutralize the acid/corrosion with baking soda. apply liberally and hose off with water.
If your battery is dry on top, and the connections are clean, if the battery is more than 3 years old, it's most likely going bad. Simply swap it for a new one. If the battery is newer and the connections are clean, then you may have a charging issue...
But also check to make sure you didn't leave courtesy lights on overnight... If that's the case, get a jumpstart or charge the battery.

Won't turn over - rapid clicks - panel lights flicker

Check the battery condition - it may be flat,
check battery terminal posts are clean and connection cables are not loose or corroded.

Truck sometimes starts and sometimes wont. i hear a clicking soun

Unbolt and clean your battery terminals if dirty or corroded, preferably replace the bolts (good auto parts stores stock them, and they take some effort to remove and replace them but it's necessary to properly clean the terminals anyway) charge, jump or replace battery ... connect battery terminals and don't over tighten ... start the truck, check charging system gauges confirm charging voltage over 12V 13.8V-14.5V and lights should be bright as normal ... if so, you may be fixed ... if not you have charging system issues, that will be the next post if needed.
