The click is the starter solenoid going over but it's not sending main battery power to the starter motor. If it's a preengaged motor (with the solenoid on top of the motor) then the only thing to check is that the very thick (black) cable is tightly fastened to the motor. If that's OK, then suspect the motor. You sometimes can fix this by giving the starter motor a good tap with a club hammer to free up the mechanism. If the solenoid is fastened to the inner wing somewhere then check the thick cable is connected to the solenoid AND the motor. You can test this one by using an old spanner or screwdriver and short out the two large terminals - BE VERY CAREFUL - take the car out of drive first. Also, this will spark a LOT - mind your eyes. In both cases, check the thick battery cables are connected tightly to the battery and that the earth straps are OK. VERY BAD IDEA!!!! NEVER short out a battery!!!! It's quite possible that you just need a new battery. I've seen it many times where there is plenty of juice to power the lights and radio, but not enough to start the car. (It takes hundreds of amps to start a car, but only 10 amps to run the radio). Could also be the starter solenoid as suggested in the previous post, but please use a battery tester instead of a screwdriver to test a battery.
A clicking noise in the engine of a 91 Ranger could indicate a problem with the valves. A valve lifter in the engine may be worn or stuck.
stater or silanoid
could be bad cells in the battery, but my bmw ended up having a seized motor, starter was engaging and clicking because it couldnt turn the engine. try putting a socket on the engine crank pulley to see if engine will rotate
You need to check your starter or your starter selenoid.
it makes that clicking noise because you touch yourself at night
central airconditioner makes a clicking noise when running? any idea what to check?
Weak battery? Loose or corroded battery cables? Starter solenoid?
check oil and oil pressure if good sell it
I have the same car with the same clicking noise right after you start the engine. The noise stops shortly after starting. There was a recall from Chrysler for this problem. Contact your local dealer regarding this matter.
Possibly the lifters?!?
The Battery is shot and you need to replace it.
That is a sign or dead battery or battery terminals are corroded
Could have a bad motor mount
it makes a clicking noise
A car that makes a clicking noise when you are trying to start usually has a bad alternator. If the car clicks just one time when you try to start it, it could be the starter.
It really depends on the cause of the noise. Every Inline-4 Cylinder car I have ever seen makes some kind of clicking type noise when they are started cold, I'm pretty sure it's noise from the mechanical valve lifters. If it's really concerning to you, take the car to a qualified mechanic.
Does the engine turn over and then make the clicking noise while trying to start, or does it not do anything but make the clicking noise when you turn the key. If its not turning over at all then it might be a battery problem, Try cleaning the battery terminals, and/or charge the battery, Could also be the starter solenoid, but start with the battery first.
If clicking while trying to start then might be a bad starter. If clicking while running, then might be valve/lifter noise.
Weak battery or starter motor shorted out internally.
Where is the clicking coming from? Within the engine compartment or inside the car?
clicking noise when trying to sart engine usually indicates a flat battery.if the battery is not the problem ,the starter motor needs repair.
The female turkey makes a clicking noise.
a gecko, its a lizard
