Answer First, be absolutely certain that the battery is ok. Try a jump-start using some good cables and someone else's vehicle battery with a good charge. If the starter still won't engage and you're hearing the clicking of the starter solenoid then just about the only thing left is the starter. If you haven't replaced a starter before, either have someone do it for you or get a friend to help who has a little experience. It isn't a difficult process but there are a few steps that demand experience.

Be sure that both ends of both battery cables are clean and tight.

Does the engine turn over and then make the clicking noise while trying to start, or does it not do anything but make the clicking noise when you turn the key. If its not turning over at all then it might be a battery problem, Try cleaning the battery terminals, and/or charge the battery, Could also be the starter solenoid, but start with the battery first.

Battery, starter, starter relay solonoid, or a charging problem i.e. alternator or voltage regulator causing battery to discharge. Or bad battery cable connection or dirty or loose battery cable connections can cause this problem. Need to investigate & narrow it down.

What does it mean when your won't start or turn over?

I means you have a battery problem or a starter problem or dirty/loose battery cable connections. If the battery is operating the starter and the starter is turning the engine over but the engine won't start and run, you may have a spark problem or a fuel problem.

have you replaced the battery? It sounds like an electrical problem. The battery needs load tested... which can be done for free at autozone, advance auto parts, etc. Also check the starter soleonoid... should be located either on passenger side of engine compartment or on the firewall somewhere... simple/cheap fix if that's the problem

What is it when the tail lights stay on and interior lights stay on and make clicking sound on 94 stealth?

The engine is clicking with all of the interior lights on? Dead battery... and for future reference... if there is no clicking= really dead battery and it might not recharge. In that case check the alternator, if the alternator is still good, just buy a new battery. If the battery continues to fail to recharge get a new alternator.

A clicking sound, when trying to start the engine, indicates a dead battery or poor (dirty) battery or starter relay connections.The clicking sound is the starter relay(soleniod) not getting enough power to hold it's contact points together.

Clicking sound when trying to start suburban 2001. jumping battery starts it?

"Clicking" or "Chattering" Sound When Attempting to Crank EngineA clicking or chattering sound when the key is turned to the start position indicates low battery voltage, OR that that inadequate voltage/current is getting from the battery to the starter motor. If the battery voltage is 11 volts, or greater, then the next most common cause for clicking is a loose or corroded connection anywhere between the battery and/or including the starter itself. Corrosion can occur on the contact surfaces inside of a connection, and be invisible without disconnecting the connector(s) to observe and remove it. These two are the most common causes.However, clicking/chattering could also indicate:A defective battery,Failed or low output alternator or generator,Worn out starter solenoid,Defective starter.There are probably other causes that I've overlooked at the moment. Without doing a "hands on troubleshooting" of your vehicle's starting electrical system, no one here can specifically identify the precise cause.You need to first fully charge the battery and try again. If that solves the problem, then you need to determine why the battery voltage was too low.If charging the battery does not solve the clicking problem, then the problem will be in other areas of the starting electrical system.

Why 1983 ford full size bronco battery is charge start no problem next morning battery is dead?

Your battery is being drained by a short to ground ,SOMEWHERE. Easiest way to find this out for sure , without a test meter, is to disconnect the Positive battery terminal when you shut down engine. Then see if it starts the next day.

Engine clicking sound?

Clicking means metal on metal and no oil in between. Check your oil, oil and filter changed? Don't drive it if it gets worse - there is a glog somewhere - or it is too late already.

What causes a clicking sound and the car not to start when the battery is charged?

Then your battery is still not charged. The clicking sound is the solenoid that has a little gear on it that engages with the ring gear of the engine to spin it. There is a certain amount of voltage needed to push that solenoid into the ring gear and your battery isn't putting out enough. You'll need a jump to get started and then need to consider the battery.

Why does check engine light go off when disconnect battery and come back on the next day?

The check engine light goes on because there is a problem with the engine control system. Until the problem is fixed it will continue to come back on even after you clear it by disconnecting the battery.

More than likely the battery is to weak to start the engine. If it's not the battery, the starter may be the culprit.
