Might be your starter Question: How do you know the battery is in good condition? That clicking sound is the starter not having enough amps to turn the starter motor. Check the terminal for corrosion or a loose power wire to the starter solenoid. Also the wires to the starter relay. Take the battery to a auto parts store to be tested.

If it makes the ticking sound and the engine will not crank, then either your battery is dead or the starter solenoid is shot.

IF... you're sure the battery's good, (have you tried jumping it? If you can jump it it's almost surely the battery) check/clean the cables and ends. The ticking sound you hear is usually associated with either a dead battery or a bad battery cables.

usually in any vehicle when the battery dies if you keep turning the key there will be a ticking sound and since the battery has no power left it wont turn over your engine therefor it not being able to start however if the battery is just fine you got me

The most likely cause of a ticking sound in a motor is a bad timing belt. A valve out of time can also cause a ticking sound.

Get your brakes tested. I do not know what a ticking sound means.

battery cable is loose Also check... The ticking sound comes from the starter not getting enough battery power. Even though there is battery power, there is not sufficient load power from the battery to start the vehcile. Put a volt meter across the battery posts and try and start the vehicle. If the voltage drops below 9 volts you need a new battery.

If the ticking sounds like a "normal" ticking, it is probably the fuel injectors.

It means that your clock is working. Also the sound is the seconds hand ticking

I have a 1998 olds cutlass and it is leaking cooling and have a bad ticking sound what do you think I should do.

If the car is ticking but not turning over when trying to start, it sounds as if it's an electrical issue. The ticking sound is probably the starter solenoid. It sounds like there's not enough current to engage the starter. (They require quite a bit of juice.) I'd suggest checking the battery, alternator, and battery cables.

Sometimes a ticking sound is a valve lifter. The faster you go the faster the ticking will be. Make sure first it is not something stuck in a tire or something on the fan belt.

That slight ticking sound is probably the injectors firing which is normal.

A ticking or clicking sound is probably lifter noise, the valves need adjusting

User Avatar

Maybe that ticking sound is the ignition key switch in the steering wheel column failing to make enough contact to switch on. Also, it's possible your starter is shot. Obviously make sure that your battery is in good shape.

Ticking on acceleration is usually the ignition timing, get it tuned..

Battery dying - there isn't enough power left in the battery to turn the motor over during the starting process. Could also be the starter selenoid or the starter motor itself.

The tinking sound if it is a light sound is probably the fuel injectors working which is normal but I would check the oil level and make sure it is full first it could be lifters ticking or clattering.

you need to adjust the valves

Normally loose tappets will cause a ticking sound in the engine. Depending on if you have mechanical or hydraulic tappets you may need to have them replaced or simply adjusted.

starter relay replace starter relay I am not sure but you may have to replace the starter

Its possible that this ticking sound is caused from driving fast for prolong periods. Its possible that its not the engine that is making the sound, but the exhaust system somewhere. I hear a ticking sound if I drive over 140KMh for long periods. It always stops once the car cools. I hopes this helps.

A sound at 15 decibels is not very load. It is equivalent to the sound that watch makes when ticking.
