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.

if there is a single click when you turn the key i would lean toward a starter being bad if there is multiple rapid clicks then i would lean toward a battery

Dead battery or a bad connection to the battery.

Sounds like a starter problem. you can have a garage test it for you. Or you can test it yourself. Have you tried to bump start it?

sounds like the battery is dead, take the battery to a shop that can load test it

if it does not turn over and no clicking noise but headlights on, check start fuse and relay if it doesnt turn over and clicks probable starter solenoid

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.

jump start the car and get a new battery and if it isn't the battery it could be the alternator or both, but try a new battery first

Just hold down the on button until it clicks twice.

Likely low battery- the click is the starter solenoid trying to pull in, but not enough current to turn the starter motor. If it will start with a jump, either battery or charging system needs attention.

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.

When you try to turn the car over, does it click? If it doesn't click, and the interrior lights stay on, then it is your starter. If it clicks, but just wont turn over, then try getting a tune up.

You, in all probabilty have either bad battery connections, a bad battery or the start solenoid. I would say the connections are the problem.

It clicks?What are you talking about clicking? you turn the key to start the car and all it will do is click,click! or when you try to start it it will spin over and then stop and click.! All I can think of if your car battery isn't good enough to start the car and you will get a click or you have a bad starter and it will only click. need more info

Usually there is a knob that clicks when you turn it, as you turn it the light will go on and off.

turn the key? no start? check the battery connections. clean them make sure they are tight turn the key no start? turn on the headlights if you have bright headlights, the starter may be the issue. if you have no headlights, look at charging the battery after battery charge turn the key tries to start or clicks probably a dead battery if the car turns over and just won't start do you have gas? If the car turns over and tries to start that means the battery and starter are good now you need to find out why you are not either getting spark of fuel.
