On a 1994 Nissan Altima if the battery is good and all of the electrical items work why when you turn the key to start would it just click?
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.
What is the problem when you try to start a car and you hear a click and everything shuts down including electrical functions?
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.
when your battery is disconnected, or dies, it unsets the automatic roll up feature. You have to push the down button and hold it down for a few seconds when it goes down. You should hear a click and that will reengage the automatic feature. On some models you have to also manually roll it up and hold the up button, but I don't think on yours. wilhouse
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.
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.
Why does a 1986 f-150 pickup just click if it would not start and you replaced the starter solenoid and both battery cables and everything is hooked up as it was before it broke?
try changing the battery, your battery might be bad you never know, it might not hold a charge The starter relay needs to have good contact. Even though it may click, the contact is dirty and not good enough to transmit strong electrical power to the starter. Change the starter relay which is connected to the positive cable to the battery. Do not confuse the starter solenoid with the starter relay.
Laptop Battery can be any device that stores energy for later use. The word battery is limited to an electrochemical device that converts chemical energy into electricity, by use of a galvanic cell. A galvanic cell is a fairly simple device consisting of two electrodes (an anode and a cathode) and an electrolyte solution. Batteries consist of one or more galvanic cells. A Laptop Battery is an electrical storage device. Latop Batteries do not make…
1993 Acura Vigor It will not start when you turn the key you hear a click but it does not start this all started after you got your battery terminals cleaned and it cannot be jump started?
If a jump start will not start it then it is not the battery. You either have a short in the battery cable connection to the battery or the engine/starter or you have a bad starter. Test for a short in battery, battery Cables or connection. Trace where the positive battery cable connects to usually an electrical box on the inside of the engine compartment and put the positive jumper cable there while putting the…
A single click usually means a bad starter (unless the engine is stuck and can't turn over.) Rapid clicking almost a buzz would indicate dead or discharged battery or poor electrical connection from battery to starter. To be a little more sure, use a voltmeter to measure voltage while trying to crank. Below 9.5V indicates not enough electrical power available - battery issue. Higher voltage then 10.6V indicates plenty of juice, but the starter isn't…
If no electrical equipment is working except headlights and chime on a 93 Grand AM what do you troubleshoot?
Why would my car not turn over occasionally when my mechanic says there is nothing wrong When it won't start I just hear a click and the battery is checked and is good?
right side under the plastic near the tire and the bumper thats the bottom of it its located in between the fender and stuff I also own A 94 Nissan Altima GXE.If your standing in front of your Nissan,with hood open.The Washer Fluid Reservoir is on your right,Up front ,its a round cylinder,clear, you can see the blue color of the fluid threw the plastic.It has a cap on it,the cap is attached to the…
How do you start your 1997 Nissan sentra when you put a new starter alternator battery in and it won't start it makes a click noise and the lights and stereo still work?
Car won't start intermittently and nothing turns over and there is no starter click car also has started to idle rough what could be wrong?
Take the battery out and charge it. Once you reconnect it and you know you have electrical power, turn the key in the ignition. If it makes NO sound at all, not even a single click, it's probably the starter switch. If instead you hear a click-click-click sound, it's probably the starter solenoid. If you hear a single click and no other noise, or a noise that sounds unusual for the starter, then the starter…
What would make a '99 Chevy Suburban go click click click act like it has a dead battery when the key is in the ignition but NOT engaged and when the key is out of he ingiion it still does the click?
Bad connection at battery, bad connection at starter, relay problem, defective starter, wiring issues. More symptoms would help eg: does it turn over but won't start? does it click the starter solenoid? When you turn the key do you get power to the relay? Also check the fuse box in the right rear corner behind the battery. They are known for the body work rotting out and the box coming loose causing electrical problems
The best way to see if a fuel pump is working on any vehicle is to open the gas tank or get as close to the tank as possible. Turn the ignition switch to "ACC" with out turning on the engine. If you hear a click and humming, or feel vibration coming from the gas tank then your fuel pump is operational. Just listen for it and it will tell you if its operating or…
