Your car wont start you here a clicking noise coming from somewhere near the glove box could it be your starter solenoid?
It may be the starter solenoid that is clicking. If the battery is very low when you try to start the car, the solenoid will engage but the starter will not turn. Because the battery is so low, there is not enough power to hold the solenoid closed (in the start position) and try to turn the started so as the starter draws power, the solenoid clicks open, The starter doesn't draw any power with the solenoid open so the solenoid...

How do you remove and repair a 1999 Harley Sportster starter that only makes clicking sounds?
First check the battery, then check the starter solenoid by taking a peice of wire and touching the 12v pos. battery cable to the top of the starter where it goes in. It says in the manual to take it to a dealer because you have to take the starter apart to get to the solenoid...

When you turned the key in your car to start it you heard a clicking sound What could that be?
There are a few possibilities: Low battery, either because the alternator isn't keeping the battery charged or the battery is old and has failed. Corroded battery terminals, usually an indicator that the battery is blowing acid fumes. Batteries usually don't last long after the terminals start to corrode. Faulty starter solenoid. IT SOUNDS LIKE IT COULD BE YOUR STARTED CYLINOID ...

Asked in Car Sounds, Car Starting Problems
Why does your 1996 dodge caravan battery go dead when you turn the key and it wont turn over just make a clicking noise?
The key point to this question is that the battery goes dead!!. The clicking noise indicates a weak battery because it does not have enough charge to keep the relay/solenoid held in to engage starter. Try to get a jump, and if it starts, let engine run for about 10 minutes while driving or fast idle. Shut down engine and see if it starts, if it does, then check voltage with volt meter across battery terminals. It should be 14.5 or...

1997 5.0 Explorer when you turn the key the engine won't start but the solenoid clicks and the box behind the battery clicks also Is your starter bad or is your solenoid bad?
First things first. make sure the battery is good because that clicking is a dead giveaway for either a weak battery, or corroded or loose connections and wires. The battery connections must be clean dry and have an excellent connection to the terminal and the main red wire to the starter must be free of corrosion and its connections need to be tight if not you will have enough power to run everything but a large current draw like starting will...

How come your F150 will not start it only clicks when you turn the key?
I would have to hear the noise to be sure but it sounds like the attery could be weak. The clicking you here may be the starter solenoid trying to engage, but it cant, because of a lack of electrical power. If that is the case, the clicking will probably be a rapid clicking noise, that might sound like a woodpecker. The salanoid switch or the battery could be bad. Also make sure you have good clean tight connections. Sometime you...

Asked in Car Batteries, Ford Escort LX
Where is the starter located on a 91 ford escort with the 19L or could there be another problem because it will not even crank has new battery?
Make extra sure that the cables are good and not corroded and green inside and that the ground is on bare metal. Then look at the solenoid located near the battery it connects to the red battery cable. Check these before you think about replacing the starter. The starter is found by following the battery cable from the solenoid; it will lead you right to it. ...
Asked in Car Starting Problems, Chevy Impala, Radio
You have a 2001 Chevy Impala you've had the starter replaced but somethings the car won't start all functions radio wipers come on should you have th switch replaced?
Don't replace the switch yet; I would say that it sounds more like a battery cable/battery ground connection. I would recheck all these connections plus I would really inspect the starter solenoid and its connection. Power can still flow thru but the starter motor requires much more power than accessories so any weak connection will prevent your car from starting. The starter solenoid sits on top of the starter and was probably replaced as a unit, but just because its new does...

Asked in Chevy 350
The starter on a 350 Chevy clicks and won't turn over what is wrong?
That symptom is most often a dead battery, but could also mean bad end bushings on the starter or a bad starter drive. ANOTHER ANSWER: The solenoid typically makes a clicking noise as it engages the starting gear to the flywheel. As the solenoid is "pulled in", it also causes the electrical contact to send current to the starter motor. You don't hear the solenoid engage because the starter is usually masking the sound. If the starter motor is not spinning it...

Turn your headlights on and try start the engine, if they don't dim then the problem is still in the starter motor.

What is the problem if when you turn the key over all you get is clicking on a 1990 Chevy Silverado 5.7 L?
The clicking is almost always the starter solenoid (also sometimes called the starter relay)trying to activate the starter. There are several possible answers from this point. 1. Your battery may not be delivering enough current to the starter. 2. The heavy cable connections (one or more of the following)on the + side from the positive battery post to the solenoid, from the solenoid to the starter, and on the - side from the starter to the engine block (loose mounting bolts), from...
