Could be battery, battery connections, starter, starter connections, neutral safety switch. I would check those in that order.

If a car wont start but all lights come on and when you turn the key you hear clicking is that the starter?

Yes, the clicking is the starter, but there's probably nothing wrong with it. Your battery doesn't have enough juice to turn the starter motor (draws lots of current), but still has enough to turn on the lights and accessories. Try jump starting it or trickle charge the battery.

How do you fix a four wheeler that won't start with a fully charged battery?

There is many different things that can be wrong. If you have lights but the starter won't spin, then you could have a bad break light switch,a bad starter switch, bad starter solenoid, or even a bad starter. If the starter does spin but the motor won't start it could be a bad spark plug, bad coil, fuel blockage, carburetor that needs to be cleaned out, or bad stator.

Your battery is dead and you should probably take it to the repair shop and have them put it in for you. Couldn't it be the starter motor? The lights and radio come on, so there must be some juice and the battery.

1997 dodge ram truck won't start lights are bright and starter clicks but will not turn over what is wrong?

The starter solenoid or relay switch needs to be replaced. Definitely not true, start out with something a little more simple, clean your battery terminals and make sure they are tight, that is usually when you will hear clicking.

How can i fix a 1999 Pontiac sunfire that the tail lights and brake lights are not working but daytime runners and back window brake light works what is wrong?

On my 98 sunfire, the tail lights and marker lights only work if you turn on the headlights. If only the daytime lights are on, the Pontiac on the trunk is illuminated but no other lights at the rear until brakes or turn signals are activated. This is common with a lot of vehicles out there. Daytime running lights are not necessarily the same candle power as the headlights. I can tell a big difference in mine.

What is wrong with your 01 Neon when you start the car it does not turn on and all the power and gages turn off but the engin still clicks?

First of all is the lights working in the car? (over head lights or any kind of lights) If your not getting anything at all (no lights) then you should check the battery. If the lights are working then I would check your starter. Most of the time if you take the battery somewhere to get checked they will do it for free. So I would start there. Did you try to get a jump to see if that would start it? Hope this helped some.
