Sounds like selonoid or starter relay.. check the fuse if there is one available. sears web site has the info. all you need is the model and serial number.

My 2008 chevy Silverado LS won't start I just hear a clicking noise when I try to crank it and the battery seem to be fine


The click sound is the starter selinoid. you can attemt to bypass the selinoid by jumping the two big wires on the starter together and see if the starter spins. But it sounds like your starter is burned up. Time to replace it.

My truck wont start battery is brand new all gueges work when i turn the key but it wont crank?


If you look down where the starter is you will see al little round selinoid with to things sticking out that look like screws and have nuts and wires going to them. Take a good gauge wire and jump across them. If the starter does not kick in or spin over then your starter is bad. If it does kick over then there is a good chance that the ignition switch has gone bad.

Replaced starter relay and stater in yamaha 1100 2001 v star


Charge battery to full, start in neutral, still clicks? Bad ground, or bad connection. Jump starter solenoid with screwdriver,etc. if motor turns over the relay is bad. Chaz Moto DC

Dodge durango will not start at all , bought new battery ,looked at all fuses alternator is working.all i can hear is a clicking noise coming from the glove compartment


Replace the starter,it is a low geared starter ,witch has contacts,instead of brushes,if I am correct you can sometimes tap the starter while trying to start,and the starter will turn the engine over,use a hammer,do not slam the starter,it will break the magnets in the stater.

1987 F150 302 ci. EFI, Automatic, Was running good. Next morning NOTHING! Wouldn't start or crank over? Just clicking and buzzing, Headlights OKAY. Tried jump starting... NO GOOD. Took battery in... Was...


try over riding the starter relay on the fender ,it has one there right?. dont go to a mechanic yet. the engine aint seized. if it doesnt have this relay then i would get the alternator tested. if you want to test it yourself it can be costly for the right equip. autozone usually tests for free. i dont know were you live so if theres not an autozone. let me know if you cant get it tested.
