How is your battery ? Try a battery charger , battery jumpstarter pack , or a battery boost and see if it starts . ( also, it could be a battery cable connection )

A no start condition where the starter just clicks.

if it wont turn over at all you need a starter

starter, starter relay, battery, high resistance in batter/starter cabels just a few things that will cause this.

It's probably your starter or maybe the sellonoid. Easy to check which it is.

Dead battery? try jumping it off. bad starter solenoid? bad starter?

Clicking can mean a loose connection between battery and starter. Follow wire to starter and clean/tighten connector at starter.

It will probably be your starter motor Starter is out!

These answers by mechanics about dead batteries are amazing me. I am a girl...really into cars because I have had a few. I just had this problem in my 1989 classic Saab. The problem is your starter...The clicking sound means that the pin inside of the starter is not projecting itself and thats why when you turn your key you hear a clicking. Get your starter tested

your battery is flat Could be that your starter is dead. The clicking is the starter solenoid. That's a good thing that it is at least clicking. Replace the starter.

two very good possibilities are the battery, and the starter. its easy to test, just try to jump start it. if it still just clicks it needs a starter. if it starts its probably the battery.

Dirty battery connections or loose battery cables at starter or solenoid?

check the battery,check the starter, see if their both good. It's the battery, if all it does is click. The clicking is the starter trying to start but not having enough electricity.

Basics, If the battery is OK and the starter just clicks it is the starter. If the starter turns the engine over but won't start it could be a crankshaft or camshaft sensor or fuel pump. It needs to be diagnosed or it can be extremely costly to just replace a lot of unnecessary parts in it.

I would check your charging system. If you turn over your key and your starter just clicks, it is usually a low battery charge or your starter is out. I would suggest jumping off your vehicle and taking it to autozone and have them do a charging test for free.

First check both connections at the battery and if connections are good then it would be a faulty starter solenoid.ANS 2 - If it clicks that's usually a sign the solenoid IS working, but voltage is not getting to the starter. This can be a loose or oily connection at the starter, a worn or ineffective Bendix spring, or a burnt out starter. Even a starter not making good ground to the engine block can cause this symptom.

It could be, a dead battery, loose or dirty battery connections, a faulty starter,

Check your battery first, its terminal connection and connection leading to the starter.

Weak battery? Seized engine? Loose or corroded battery cables? Bad Starter solenoid? Bad starter? Bad neutral safety switch?

The problem is not in the starter. Check the starter solenoid/relay switch or look for a loose battery cable connection.

Look for loose connections at the battery, starter solenoid, starter and switch. If all connections are good, the starter solenoid probably needs to be replaced.
