Car Batteries
Toyota Tercel

I replaced the battery on my 1997 Toyota Tercel but when I try to start the engine it still clicks and takes 10 - 15 tries to start?

Did you check your starter?

Multiple "clicks" check for a weak battery Check fr loose or corroded battery cables Single "click" Maybe a bad starter solenoid

Bad battery, starting motor or both.

Dead battery or a bad connection to the battery.

Possibly the battery has run down. Process of elimination, check to make certain battery cables make good contact with the battery, charge the battery, have it tested, or receive a boost. Next if unsuccessful check the starter, and alternator.

(1)The battery may need charging, or (2) the battery cable(s) may be loose or need cleaning, or (3) the starter relay may need to be replaced.

If you are talking about a car engine and battery then it is not the battery that is clicking. It is in all probability the solenoid.

If the battery is bad, you may only hear clicks. It could be the starter, but I would check the charge on the battery first.

AnswerDim lights and lots of clicks is an indication of too low a charge on the battery. When jump-starting, allow the battery to be attached to the jumper cables for about 5 minutes before trying to crank the engine. If that fails, check for loose battery cables at the battery, ground, or starter. If all connections are good, then the battery is too far gone and must be replaced. Note: You need to find out why the battery discharged - did you leave the lights on? is the alternator bad?.

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.

Low battery voltage will cause clicks, and it is also possible that the starter solenoid is too worn in which case replacing the whole starter is best.

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

you need a new battery. if battery has been replaced and this still does not solve the problem, you must have had the bad battery for too long and it ruined the If the new battery doesn't solve the problem you can have check the battery cables, make sure they have a clean tight connection. Also the problem could be with your starter also.

Check wiring at starter Check battery cables for looseness or corrosion "Rap" starter with a hammer to see if brushes are stuck and need replacing Engine seized?

The relay is right behind the battery. The lead got bumped off when removing the battery to get access to the blower motor.

Check your battery, it might be dead.

solenoids are what clicks, yes it will click if the battery is low.

You need to charge your battery or get a jump. Replace the battery or have it checked because it is dead.

Your battery is low. You probably has to replace the battery. Or maybe the starter motor solonoid is faulty

Slide it back into the battery compartment until it clicks (observing correct polarity !)

starter, solonoid, ignition, battery. if it clicks when you turn the key then the battery is really dead or its the starter the battery could still be jumped if its the battery.

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
