check your wiring to selinoid and relay and battery posts also make sure plugs and or wires are good and check the battery
Depends on the year, but basicaly, there will be a large wire/cable comming off the starter, follow that as it goes DIRECTLY to the selinoid... on the selinoid, you will see another large wire/cable..that goes directly to the POS on the battery..so...you can also follow the large cable comming off the POS battery post, and find the selinoid...
Charge or replace the battery.
If there is clicking, that means the car has power from the battery so the altenator and the battery are good. I would suggest that the starter is gone bad. It will eventually grind away to where there is no clicking.
dead battery or bad starter (with the clicking, I'm 95% sure its the 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.
That is not a question.
Are you positive the battery is dead? Have you tried to jump start it? That clicking could be the starter relay.
If just clicking and not starting, most likely a dead battery.
Dead battery or dirty/loose battery connection.
If your car makes a clicking sound when you try to start it, try to jump the battery. If that starts it, check the electrical system and if it was the battery, replace the battery. If jumping it does not fix it, have a mechanic look at it.
In my case I have a 1999 SL1 and the clicking sounds where the relays for the electric door locks. I removed them and I have not have the battery drained. I have not replaced them yet.
check your battery then the connections if it still wont start try changing the starter solenoid if possible
Replace battery cable.
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.
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 it is a single click, the problem is either a loose battery cable or a faulty starter relay/solenoid. If the symptom is rapid clicking, the battery is probaly low.
The Battery is shot and you need to replace it.
Maybe flat battery?
Bad Battery: the clicking is the starter solenoid relay making contact but the battery is not putting out enough amps to turn the starter
More than likely you have corrosion at the terminals. Clean the battery terminals and then recharge the battery and see what happens.
typically a clicking noise indicated that you don't have enough power from the battery to turn the starting motor. try cleaning the battery terminals with baking soda and water, then charging the battery. dirty terminals or a dirty battery top will drain the battery causing starting problems.
