either clean and tighten cable connections or get battery tested. if not the battery, it is the solenoid or the starter If it is clicking and not starting at first, but starts after a few tries, its your starter taking a dump. Replace it.
Dead/disconnected battery or bad starter if it starts intermittently. Probably the battery though.
it could be the starter or it could just be a bad battery, try to jump start the vehicle with another vehicle with jumper cables or a jumpbox, if the vehicle starts, most likely it is the battery. It is still a good idea to get the starter checked out.
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
That usually means your cables are loose and aren't making good contact. The clicking is the arcing of the spark. Tighten your battery cable ends completely and make sure they can't spin on the posts at all.
get your starter check I had same problem it was faulty starter
you've got your wires crossed on your starter,
It sounds like the battery is ok so check the wire connections at the battery and make sure they are tight and clean, do the same for the starter. If this does not help the starter may be going bad.
Battery is weak,battery post connectors need cleaning or tightening up are the first things I would check.Cable going to the starter from battery loose at starter and finally the starter itself or the solenoid or relay may be bad,hopefully it is loose or dirty connections.Maybe all you need is a jump start if the battery is weak.And if it starts have it checked before it leaves you stranded somewhere.
The ignition switch completes the circuit of electricity from the battery to the starter that actually turn the engine over and starts it.The ignition switch completes the circuit of electricity from the battery to the starter that actually turn the engine over and starts it.
It could be your battery. Try honking your horn and hold it down...see if it sounds strong the whole time, or if it starts strong and then starts to fade out. It could also be the starter. The battery is easier to fix, especially if you have AAA. Good luck!
There could be oil in the solenoid which is too thick in the morning but once it warms up later in the day the oil is thin enough to allow the solenoid to make contact and turn the starter. Is the solenoid clicking when you try to start it? It could also be a bad battery connection but it doesn't sound like it.
Try removeing the battery connections, and cleaning them. Often, the symptoms you describe occur when the battery connections have corroded. use jumper cables and another vechile jumping to your battery, if it starts, then it is battery related
The wires to the starter are probably connected wrong.
there is a clicking noise when I start engine starts no problem just curious of the clicking noist
If you hear a clicking sound when you turn your key, or it starts some of the time but not all the time, probably a starter issue. Best to take off the starter and have your local parts store test it. Chances are the starter bearings are shot, time for a new or reman starter.
If your battery is good but the starter motor just clicks instead of turning over it is bad, OR it turns over weakly or turns over and starts clicking then it is bad. If it turns over strongly and sounds OK then it is OK.
If your car makes a clicking sound when you try to start it, try to jump the battery. If that starts it, check the electrical system and if it was the battery, replace the battery. If jumping it does not fix it, have a mechanic look at it.
Possibly the starter, possibly the solenoid... fortunately, they're both replaced when you buy a new starter.
1-Could be that you battery is dead. There will be enough juice to run the radio and the dome light but not enough to crank the motor. 2-Could be the starter Try jumping your battery first. If it starts, it's probably your battery. Make sure both of your connections are good on your battery.
It sounds like the starter is bad. The clicking you hear is the solenoid trying to kick-over the starter. If the vehicle starts but, won't stay running, it could be the alternator, or the wireing to (from) the battery or alternator (most likely the ground wire). Or it could be the dreaded MASS AIRFLOW SENSOR!!!!
dead battery..not enough chargeAnswerA loose connection can also cause the clicking, check the cables. If the battery is years or older, replace it. The alternater may not be charging the battery or there may be a parasitic draw draining the battery. AnswerIt could be anything electrical. Most likely, if the battery is charged, and the cables are tight, it could be the starter. More commonly the solenoid. Try tapping the solenoid with the car off, and try starting it. If after this, the car starts.. then you need to check into replacing the solenoid, or the entire starter motor, if the solenoid is connected to the starter.
my first thought would be to check the starter . if you can tap on the starter and it starts after that..you have a bad starter .
If the starter clicks, but doesn't start the car, that indicates that the starter solenoid is working, but the commutator that actually spins the engine is not. Take the starter back and have it tested. The battery could also be at fault. If the battery doesn't supply enough power you'll get the same result. check the battery voltage first should be 12.6 volts if not jump the battery see if it starts.if it does bad battery.
disconnect battery. from underneath disconnect solenoid wire and battery cable from starter solenoid. remove starter motor bolts. remove starter motor. installation is the reverse but be sure to place the starter shim between the starter motor and the engine or you will get noise during starts.
