battery or corroded connection on battery

One click most likely is a bad starter motor or solenoid.

Many clicks battery or connection problem.

clicking car It's one of two things. Need a naw starter, or dead battery.

It could be battery connection, discharged or faulty battery, faulty alternator or regulator, faulty starter or a loose and corroded connection on the starter.

Check the oil first, if oil is low it will run good but just have a constant clicking sound on idle.

There could be many, many reasons but start with checking the oil level, it may be low. If the clicking is happening only when you are moving, it may mean that you need new wheel bearings.

First thing that I would do is check the battery. The clicking sound is the selenoid on the starter. Usually that means the starter is bad. Isn't very hard to replace. Hope this helped.

Depends on what's wrong with the starter, exactly. It could be whirring sound, a clicking sound, no sound at all, etc.

Probably not, many cars have a switch on the clutch that allows you to start it while in gear.

dead battery or bad starter (with the clicking, I'm 95% sure its the battery)

Sounds like the a/c compressor is locking up and burning both the a/c clutch and the belt..........

fan belt or lots of things but most likely fan belt

1. Starter is frozen (bearings seized) 2. Poor contact at starter solinoid 3. Low or dead battery.

If you are talking about a car engine and battery then it is not the battery that is clicking. It is in all probability the solenoid.

Depends on what else is going on. Check the basics.... Fuel, Air, Spark. There is probably about 30 or so things that could be wrong. More info, then maybe we can help better.

check the fuses some cars have them under the hood as well as in the car Check ignition coil or coils Check to see if battery is grounded ok Dead battery? Bad battery cable? Check and clean all battery cables.

I suggest that you take your car to the dealer and they can help you there and tell you if there is somthing wrong with it or not.

Dont know who said the last comment but its completely wrong. Its the anti-theft protection on your radio you need the five digit security code from the dealer to unlock it.
