If you hear only a single click - most likely solenoid switch Make sure connections clean and tight on solenoid "Pigtail wire" and also solenoid on top of starter (Ford had some problems with corrosion and connections loosening up over a period of time). If you hear multiple Clicks - check battery connections to make sure clean and tight One other "rap" the stater with hammer or whatever and see if vehicle starts indicating bad starter brushes
Battery is dead, wires are loose or corroded, or starter is defective.
most likely tha starter is bad or the power to the starter is bad
you can try to short the starter motor . take a screw driver and bridge ffrom battery cable on starter to ignition wire on starter. if starter is good, engine will crank. if starter is bad , solenoid will click if no clicking, solenoid is bad
if i turn the key and all i hear is click- click- click real fast, is that mean i need a new starter?
your battery is dead or the starter solenoid
Batteries don't "click," but other parts do. If you're hearing that "click," it's probably the starter solenoid trying to engage. Either the battery's charge is low, the starter solenoid has failed, or the starter motor itself has failed. On some older cars, especially Fords, the "click" could also be a remote starter relay.
Yes, most likely its the starter if the battery is fully charged and it still wont crank. When you turn the key, you should hear a click. That click is the starter engaging. No click, means the starter is no good.
try charging the battery before you replace the starter
solenoids are what clicks, yes it will click if the battery is low.
did it actually crank over or did it kinda crank then click it sounds like maybe the battery doesn't have enough power but if your sure it does i'd guess its your starter. or the selinod
When does it click and does it Crank when it is clicking
To give a generic answer, it kinda depends on what type of click. If it is a rapid click-click-click-click... it is probably a dead (or near dead) battery. If it is just one solid "click", it is probably your starter. The single click is the sound of the selinoid clicking in to try to engage the starter. If the starter is faulty, it won't engage and turn your engine over to start.

Take the battery out and charge it. Once you reconnect it and you know you have electrical power, turn the key in the ignition. If it makes NO sound at all, not even a single click, it's probably the starter switch. If instead you hear a click-click-click sound, it's probably the starter solenoid. If you hear a single click and no other noise, or a noise that sounds unusual for the starter, then the starter is most likely the issue. If the engine is turning over, it's probably nothing to do with the starting system at all.

One of a few things depending on the click. If it makes consecutive clicks when you turn the key (click,click,click,click) then the odds are the battery is dead or in need of charging and there just isn't enough charge to fully engage the starter and turn over the engine. If it clicks just once, the selenoid is usually bad, or the starter is "locked" and will need to be replaced.
Click the link for Taurus / Sable firing orders:
A fast rapid click is an indiction of a weak battery. A single click is an indication of a failed starter.
you turn the phone and if it doesnt. click settings and click screen rotation "on"
the solenoid on your starter is finished, replace the starter......
Do you have any click in the starter itself but still not turning over? Then its the starter giving you fits. Replace it. If no click is heard then it could be a fuse or more likely the starter relay. Check them both before moving to the starter.
