Then your battery is still not charged. The clicking sound is the solenoid that has a little gear on it that engages with the ring gear of the engine to spin it. There is a certain amount of voltage needed to push that solenoid into the ring gear and your battery isn't putting out enough. You'll need a jump to get started and then need to consider the battery.

If it does not start and just makes a clicking sound, this is an indication of: a low battery, poor battery connections, or a defective starter solenoid ( next to the battery hooked up by the short positive battery cable). Check and clean your battery cables first , then look to the solenoid if you know the battery is fully charged. I hope this helps you. Mark

What causes truck to not turn over just a clicking sound from the starter relay?

A low or dead battery will have this effect. There is enough juice in the battery to activate the solenoid in the starter (causing the clicking sound), but not enough to turn over the engine. A jump start or a replacement battery may be needed if the battery is no longer capable of holding enough of a charge even when being jumped.

What could cause a 1992 Acura Legend not to start but make a clicking sound?

A clicking sound when trying to start a car is almost always a low battery. The solinoid which engages with the ring gear isn't getting enough voltage to move it's gear. This causes a fairly rapid and regular clicking sound something like 6 or so per second. Attach a battery charger for 15 minutes or so or get someone to give you a jump. Then consider what the problem with the battery may be before you get stranded.

Your battery needs to be charged or changed out. This is a classic "dead battery" situation. Even though your battery may be good, or tests good at your local autozone, make sure it is charged all the way.

"Clicking" or "Chattering" Sound When Attempting to Crank EngineA clicking or chattering sound when the key is turned to the start position indicates low battery voltage, OR that that inadequate voltage/current is getting from the battery to the starter motor. If the battery voltage is 11 volts, or greater, then the next most common cause for clicking is a loose or corroded connection anywhere between the battery and/or including the starter itself. Corrosion can occur on the contact surfaces inside of a connection, and be invisible without disconnecting the connector(s) to observe and remove it. These two are the most common causes.However, clicking/chattering could also indicate:A defective battery,Failed or low output alternator or generator,Worn out starter solenoid,Defective starter.There are probably other causes that I've overlooked at the moment. Without doing a "hands on troubleshooting" of your vehicle's starting electrical system, no one here can specifically identify the precise cause.You need to first fully charge the battery and try again. If that solves the problem, then you need to determine why the battery voltage was too low.If charging the battery does not solve the clicking problem, then the problem will be in other areas of the starting electrical system.
