What is it when the tail lights stay on and interior lights stay on and make clicking sound on 94 stealth?

The engine is clicking with all of the interior lights on? Dead battery... and for future reference... if there is no clicking= really dead battery and it might not recharge. In that case check the alternator, if the alternator is still good, just buy a new battery. If the battery continues to fail to recharge get a new alternator.

What causes a clicking noise in the rear air conditioner on a 2002 Ford Explorer XLT?

Apparently it is the rear air "blender" ( whatever that is(?)) My 2003 Explorer was making the loud clicking sound from the rear driver side above the rear left wheel. I lived with it for a month before I just found the answer on the net. I turned off the rear fan control (from the front controls) and the clicking has stopped. I guess there is no more air from the rear now but the clicking has stopped- Car is long been paid off and I'm happy again.

What does a clicking sound near the front end of a Hyundai Sonata indicate?

A clicking sound coming from the front end indicates there is something wrong with the axle on that side of the front end and that it might fail. When the clicking sound becomes very audible, have the axle checked. It might cost about $250 to replace the axle. The "axle" is not the type of axle that goes all the way across the car from one wheel to the other. It is only a joint between the front wheel on that side and the steering mechanism.

What is the problem when 1998 Chevy makes clicking sound but won't turn over then when battery is charged car still cuts off is it the alternator?

It sounds like the starter is bad. The clicking you hear is the solenoid trying to kick-over the starter. If the vehicle starts but, won't stay running, it could be the alternator, or the wireing to (from) the battery or alternator (most likely the ground wire). Or it could be the dreaded MASS AIRFLOW SENSOR!!!!

Why would a well maintained 98 Nissan Quest make a noise when turning left?

Depends on the noise...If I'm correct this is front wheel drive and if its a clicking sound,it could be an axle that has a torn boot and the bearings are worn out...Or if its a diff sound,it could be a front shock or strut... If it is a clicking sound it is a good possiblity you have a cv joint going out. If so you need to replace very soon.
