Would a problem with the starter in a 2000 VW Passat make it not turn over and make a clicking sound?

Sound is probably not the starter, but the solenoid....

that test indicates that you need to replace the starter motor.if no clicking in this test , you would replace solenoid first. but clicking indicates solenoid works,so replace starter motor

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 .

AnswerIs the clicking sound from the engine? Try to check the oil.If this is happening when you try to start the car, it is most likely a weak battery or a bad starter. Oil would not have anything to do with this problem

my 2004 VW passat shut down cause of fuel pump problem n then of fuel pump relay problem....

If the starter is clicking, that's a good sign. Replace the battery and make sure you didn't have a drain on it. This problem could be caused by several things, but a weak battery or bad starter solenoid would be at the top of my list of things to check.

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 bad starter solenoid bad starter loose or corroded battery or starter cables

Check your battery terminals one is either loose or the grounds are bad.... On the firewall.... The clicking is the starter not getting enough power... No Clicking means no power or bad starter..Or you killed the battery(no power).. Google starter problems etc...

Possibly, but I would first check the battery and then the solenoid.

Start by checking the battery voltage and cleaning the connections to the battery. You can use a voltmeter to check voltage or just turn on the headlights and see if they are dim or bright (low voltage = dim headlights). Once battery is checked and your sure it's not the problem, remove the starter and take it to an auto part store. Many auto part stores will test the starter for free. The clicking can be a lack of battery power, poor connection or faulty starter.

Depends on what's wrong with the starter, exactly. It could be whirring sound, a clicking sound, no sound at all, etc.

my first thought would be to check the starter . if you can tap on the starter and it starts after have a bad starter .

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.

no unless you hear clicking noises from opposite side your turning-- meaning the cv axle is damaged and the axle would have to be pretty bad to cause a driveability problem i rec balancing the tires

What do you mean it will start up half way? If the car will start then it can't possibly be a problem with your solenoid. If the solenoid is bad then the car would not start at all. If you hear just a clicking noise then that means your solenoid is fine but that the starter itself is malfunctioning or that there is not ample power to turn the starter over once the solenoid has engaged. One other problem could be high resistance in the wire that connects direct battery power over to the starter.

I have had the same problem with my teg. my mate has had the same problem with his prelude. I think it may be computer related. I have found that by turning the key very slowly just before it clicks seems to solve it. I don't undeestand why, but this works for me. This first started happening at about 240000kms Your problem is the solenoid in the starter motor. I had the same problem and got my starter reconditioned for $200au. starts first go every time now

Do you want to REPAIR? Or REPLACE? Starters can be rebuilt with new parts............ Is it the starter or the starter solenoid? Before you tear apart a starter, I would make sure IT is the problem.........

First thing that I would do is check the battery. The clicking sound is the selenoid on the starter. Usually that means the starter is bad. Isn't very hard to replace. Hope this helped.

There are a couple possibilities: If the starter has been replaced and the problem has just begun, check the wiring. It could be that you have crossed the wires to the starter. If THAT'S not the case, verify that the keyswitch is releasing the starter after you let go. and last, make sure there are no damaged or crossed wires between the keyswitch and the starter.

You may also have a faulty starter solenoid or starter Your battery is low, or you have a bad connection in your cables. -I would try to charge your battery first, but if that doesn't help then go ahead and have your starter looked at! :)

Weak battery? Loose or corroded battery cables? Starter solenoid?

probably the starter at least that is where I would start at anyway. I had the same problem but after so long the car would crank and I was told the starter but have not had problem again.
