a few electrical self-help tests you can run to isolate the starting problem are: turn on the headlight & then try to start the car. if the hedlights dim then you are getting a good strong connection to the starter. If the clicking sound occurs then its a weak battery. If no headlight dimming, then check all the connectors from the battery to the starter.

this happens to me all the time... this works everytime: -turn the key forward 1 click but dont try to turn it on -put the parking break on -put the car in the gear labeled "1" -put the car back into park -take the parking break off -start the car

never fails-maybe its just my car but i found that out when the 2nd day i bought it it didnt start...and i just messed around with it like that until i figured out how to fix the problem.

I had the same problem on my 1995 Altima. The starter was the problem. Had to be replaced.

Why does your engine click when trying to start on your 1999 Saturn?

That's usually a low battery or a dirty battery terminal. Check the terminal first, see if it's corroded or loose. Next, understand that the battery is simply an electrical storage device. The battery can be bad or the alternator can fail and the battery will not have enough stored electrical energy. Before just replacing a battery, always check the charging system to make sure it's working properly before assuming that a battery has failed.

What causes the starter to click on a 1995 Serria?

My understanding is that you are hearing the starter "click" but it does not engage. If that is correct your answer is: Typically either 1. the battery isn't fully charged (either a problem with the charging system, something is running the battery down or the alternator isn't charging properly) 2. a poor electrical connection somewhere between the starter and the battery or 3. a problem with the starter or solenoid.

Car goes click click when you try to start but turns over with a boost?

The battery does not have sufficient voltage to start the car when it's cold. Have the battery checked out. If it still goes click click after running the car for a while, have the alternator checked also. A bad battery will not hold a charge and a bad alternator will not recharge the battery, (That is the reason to have the battery checked first). Make sure the connections at the battery are clean and tight.
