Your problem is the starter solenoid. It may be a remote solenoid mounted on the inner fender well. You can easily check it by running a battery booster cable from the positive battery post to the starter side of the solenoid wiring (the heavy wiring). If the starter operates, the solenoid is bad.

Likely low battery- the click is the starter solenoid trying to pull in, but not enough current to turn the starter motor. If it will start with a jump, either battery or charging system needs attention.

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.

What if your starter just clicks does not start is it the starter?

First check both connections at the battery and if connections are good then it would be a faulty starter solenoid.ANS 2 - If it clicks that's usually a sign the solenoid IS working, but voltage is not getting to the starter. This can be a loose or oily connection at the starter, a worn or ineffective Bendix spring, or a burnt out starter. Even a starter not making good ground to the engine block can cause this symptom.

What causes a Ford Windstar to not start - just clicks?

If the starter is "clicking" then check the battery to make sure that is has enough juice to turn the starter. If the battery is good. It could be your starter solenoid is bad. Most of these are built into the starter nowadays. You will have to have the starter changed. I am betting on the battery especially if it is older. Another culprit could be your alternator failing to charge your battery.

98 grand prix starter just clicks has new starter an battery starts every now an then?

If the starter clicks, but doesn't start the car, that indicates that the starter solenoid is working, but the commutator that actually spins the engine is not. Take the starter back and have it tested. The battery could also be at fault. If the battery doesn't supply enough power you'll get the same result. check the battery voltage first should be 12.6 volts if not jump the battery see if it starts.if it does bad battery.
