If the voltage level of the battery is low, turning the key to "Start" can cause a further voltage drop and you'll hear the click. Sometimes the low voltage condition will be such that the starter is engaged, drops voltage below a threshold, the solenoid disengages because of low voltage condition then the voltage comes back up enough to re-engage the solenoid and it clicks again. In either case, if you have a volt-meter check the voltage of the battery while someone attempts to start the engine. If the voltage stays anywhere near 12 Volts, check both battery terminal connections. If either is dirty you may just need to clean the contacts. If the battery voltage is down near 7 or 8 Volts when you try to start the vehicle your battery voltage is too low to do much good. The battery COULD be bad or the alternator may just not be charging. Don't just replace the battery until you are able to determine if it's a battery or alternator problem. With the same volt meter, check the battery voltage when the engine is running. The alternator SHOULD bring the battery voltage up to 13.5 volts (or near enough) and if it doesn't, you probably have a charging problem. In either case, have a reputable parts store, like Checker Auto, Kragen Auto, Auto Zone or Pep Boys check the charging system and the battery to find out what's wrong. In some cases the starter can be faulty and drawing too much current but they can check that too.
The clicking noise you can hear is the starter solenoid clicking into place. If the starter motor does not turn the engine immediately, it is probably the best place to look. it sounds like the starter motor is faulty.
When you try to start engine is there any noise,such as clicking from area of starter?If you can hear a clicking , this usually indicates poor connections.To trouble shoot starter problem, the first thing i would do is determine if it is starter or solenoid.To do this ,you need a remote starter switch,connected to starter solenoid.Solenoid is located either on the starter,or on firewall in engine bay,depending on what vehicle you have. if you dont have a remote switch, you can short the solenoid terminals with a screw driver.When shorting, if the solenoid is good you will hear clicking.If you dont hear anything , replace the solenoid.If you hear clicking and starter doesnt work, pull the starter out and replace .
Believe it or not we cant hear that clicking noise on the roof, a description will help you get an answer...
The clicking noise that you hear is the starter solenoid trying to get the starter to run. Chances are the bendix in the starter is locked up. A good fix for a locked up bendix is a few good taps with a hammer. This should free up the bendix.
clicking noise when u turn the key to start is either a bad battery or bad battery connection or the starter needs replacing rule out the solenoid, as the clicking you can hear comes from the solenoid
you will hear a loud screeching noise from where the starter is trying to engage with the flywheel...if these cogs are worn the starter will slip and make this noise.
Its the starter or celenoid
I hear a clicking noise coming from my jeep when I hit speeds greater then 50 MPH? any ideas on what can cause this
its located under the front right head light. dont worry about the clicking sound its your relay.
When you hear a clicking noise is most likely a battery problem however you stated that the battery was replaced so i suggest you check the condition of your cables look for rust or corrosion etc.
Most starting problems will be caused by a faulty relay or solenoid where you will only hear a clicking sound when trying to start the vehicle or a low battery in which case you will hear a buzzing-type rapid clicking noise. Ocassionally a starter does go bad in which case what you are listening for is a whirring noise (bad starter drive) where the starter will turn but not engage the flywheel, or a grinding noise also known as dragging (worn bushings) which is diagnozed by the starter turning very slow. If there is a "clunking" noise while attempting to start the engine, the starter drive gear may be worn and "spinning" on the flywheel without engaging, or the gear and/or flywheel may have damaged teeth. Also, there may be a case of a starter being burnt out in which case you have to remove the starter and hook it up direct to see if it will turn.
Bad battery, starter, or loose or corroded cables.
You won't hear a clicking noise from my brake light switch it doesn't make that noise.
sounds like your selinoid is bad. it might be separate from your starter or it might be attached. that means you can get a new one or try a new starter
what kind of noise do u hear. clicking, poping, or skweek etc.
When turning left or right, you will hear a clicking noise.
Your battery is dead.
<p><p>Have you checked first if the suspect relay makes a clicking noise when activated?...all relays do this. If you dont hear the click, replace it. still not happy?.....Replace the suspect relay with a similiar one from your vehicle that you know works. Again, check to hear the click when the relays activated. No click, replace
Sometimes a clicking or grinding Sometimes speedometer needle will fluctuate
They do make noise. If they fly very high, then you can't hear them.
Take out the starter take take off the back lid and you will see the two clips inside that rub against the motor kind of like motor brushes. if they are worn replace them and you will have a new starter. you will hear a clicking noise when they are bad and you will not get your starter to start. Toyota starters do not go bad(quality product). Bedros
you'll hear a constant clicking noise with no motor rotation, or you'll hear nothing at all
A clicking sound, when trying to start the engine, indicates a dead battery or poor (dirty) battery or starter relay connections.The clicking sound is the starter relay(soleniod) not getting enough power to hold it's contact points together.
BEING A COMPLETE NOVICE, I FOUND MINE RIGHT WHERE YOU HEAR THE CLICKING NOISE UPON ATTEMPT TO START MY CAR. IT IS A LITTLE PLUG, ABOUT 1 NCH BY 1 INCH HOPE THIS HELPS
My 93 Stealth es was doing the same thing..low battery or starter it was on mine, replace both and sound is gone.
