battery cable is loose Also check... The ticking sound comes from the starter not getting enough battery power. Even though there is battery power, there is not sufficient load power from the battery to start the vehcile. Put a volt meter across the battery posts and try and start the vehicle. If the voltage drops below 9 volts you need a new battery.
Most likely the ticking you are hearing is that from your solonoid. This is generally related with insufficient power from the battery.
Check battery and starter.
If it makes the ticking sound and the engine will not crank, then either your battery is dead or the starter solenoid is shot.
Usually insuffucine power to starter caused by bad or undercharged battery. Try jumping it. You might need a battery or alternator. A bad starter can also do this. Many parts store can test for free and all repair shops can test for you but might charge a few dollars.
starter relay replace starter relay I am not sure but you may have to replace the starter
Maybe that ticking sound is the ignition key switch in the steering wheel column failing to make enough contact to switch on. Also, it's possible your starter is shot. Obviously make sure that your battery is in good shape.
Check the battery, it might be low. A low battery can be caused by either an old, worn out battery or by a faulty alternator. If the alternator isn't putting electrical energy into the battery, the battery won't get charged. After all, a battery is only an electrical STORAGE device. If your battery is fine, you might have a weak starter. You should also check your ignition switch. Try disconnecting it, and then touching the female end to the battery. This grounds out the circuit, should start your car for you, and tells you your battery and starter are perfectly fine.
If the car is ticking but not turning over when trying to start, it sounds as if it's an electrical issue. The ticking sound is probably the starter solenoid. It sounds like there's not enough current to engage the starter. (They require quite a bit of juice.) I'd suggest checking the battery, alternator, and battery cables.
Might be your starter Question: How do you know the battery is in good condition? That clicking sound is the starter not having enough amps to turn the starter motor. Check the terminal for corrosion or a loose power wire to the starter solenoid. Also the wires to the starter relay. Take the battery to a auto parts store to be tested.
Battery dying - there isn't enough power left in the battery to turn the motor over during the starting process. Could also be the starter selenoid or the starter motor itself.
Does it turn over? When you try to start the car can you hear a ticking noise? If there's ticking it could be your battery or alternator but if it doesn't tick it's probably your starter.
usually in any vehicle when the battery dies if you keep turning the key there will be a ticking sound and since the battery has no power left it wont turn over your engine therefor it not being able to start however if the battery is just fine you got me
The wrist watch stopped ticking because the battery ran out.
Ticking on acceleration is usually the ignition timing, get it tuned..
look for a shorted electric motor like window motor. when the motor contacts fail they can cause the "ticking" and it drains the power constantly, even when the ignition is off.
i have 99 taruas and its my battery relay
battery is dead
Sometimes a ticking sound is a valve lifter. The faster you go the faster the ticking will be. Make sure first it is not something stuck in a tire or something on the fan belt.
The ticking noise is the metal cooling.
Make sure your battery connection are properly tight and and the corresponding cables are in their right place. If they engine doesn't turn this means your starter is not working or possibly a bad ground connection.
Not enough power to starter motor.
your battery is dead
IF... you're sure the battery's good, (have you tried jumping it? If you can jump it it's almost surely the battery) check/clean the cables and ends. The ticking sound you hear is usually associated with either a dead battery or a bad battery cables.
harmonic balance maybe bad
flat batteryAnswerMost likely it's a poor connection to the battery or the battery has an insufficient charge. When the starter tries to operate with low voltage, it will just click like that. The battery can be low because it's worn out or because the alternator isn't able to keep it charged. Always check the charging system before you replace a battery. For now, see if you can "jump start" the vehicle.
