A clicking sound when you try to start the engine is usually caused by the starter solenoid not getting enough power to start the engine--in fact, it doesn't even have enough power to engage the bendix with the starter.
You say you have a new battery--are the terminals clean (and the cables)?
Also, check the ground where it is fastened to the engine.

The click you are hearing is most likely the start slenoid making contact, however you should short the large wires @ the solenoid to make certain the starter still doesn't run, if so try tapping the starter with a hammer to shift the comutator a litle and try to start. Even if it now starts the starter will continue to give you problems so the proper fix is change the starter

2002 ford taurus won't start - brand new battery and complete tune up still won't start


Sounds like your not getting any fuel..Listen for the fuel pump,by removing gas cap and put your ear up to it..cycle the key without starting it and listen for the pump..sometimes you can beat on the bottom of the tank and it will jarr the pump and it will start running again..Not a fix but a conformation

My ford taurus won't start put on new starter and new batterie


New starter and batttery means that the engine must crank well but if the FUEL and SPARK settings are not correct or faulty then the engine will not start.
So please have the fuel checked, from the fuel filter , pump and pressure of fuel.
Check for the spark intensity and timing. If any of the above is absent or is not to the level desired then it must be checked.

My ford taurus doesnt turn on. Lights, stereo dashboard lights all turn on except the engine it sounds like it wants to turn on but it doesnt I dont know what can be wrong with the car??


If the starter is clicking, or the engine is turning over slowly, try replacing the battery or try getting a jump to see if you can get the engine to start.

If the engine is turning over, but won't start, it sounds like you may have a bad timing belt or your timing tensioner or idler has gone out.

My car wont start light come on dash works when turn over engine it just click click click then nothing tried new battery dot work i have a 2002 ford taurus please help cant afford machinic


Hello. Begin by cleaning the battery cable connections with emery cloth. do both ends, the ends at the battery posts and the other ends too. Now make sure everything is really tight and try it again. If you still get the clicking sound, your starter is bad and will need to be replaced. A rebuilt starter is a good choice.
