In my experience if the car will not start and it is a rapid clicking sound when turning the ignition it indicates a dead battery. You'll need to get a jump and wait a few minutes before trying to turn the car on again. If the battery is really dead it will take up to 10 minutes to recharge. Each time you try to turn the car on while it is being recharged it will lose the charge it has obtained and you will have to start over in time for recharging it. If you think your battery should not be dead when it is, you may want to get your alternator checked by taking it into any auto parts store as this will drain your battery prematurely.
If a truck makes a clicking sound and won't start, the battery maybe dead. The battery should be charged with jumper cables and another vehicle.
Low/dead battery, loose/dirty battery connections, bad starter,
Its the starter or celenoid
I actually had this problem with my first xbox. It turned out to be the hard drive.
Jump start car and ensure alternator and battery are good.
That could be the alternator or the battery. Try jump starting your car with another car's battery. If it still does not start, it is probably the alternator. If it starts, your battery is dead.
If it starts with jumper cables you still have a battery problem. The battery is too small, is not charged, or you have a bad cable or connection.
The starter is bad and the brushes need changed you can change them your self for dirt cheap or replace the whole starter for more money.
why wont my 1995 ford explorer not start? It just makes a clicking noise?
check your battery connections....sometimes when you have a loose ground or the positive cable is not secure to the battery it wont make a complete connection and the clicking sound results.....had it happen before...simple fix of just tightening and/or cleaning the connections to the battery terminals
Possible battery, starter or connection problem.
battery is low. get a boost or charge the battery.
If the 1992 Dodge Caravan won't start but makes a clicking noise, it is probably a combination of things. The starter solenoid is making the battery go dead between starts. Replace both and the problem should be solved.
sounds like a flat battery get a battery charger or jumpstart it with jump leads
it sounds like a dead battery recharge and try again
change the battery every time I've had that it's been the battery the likely problem is not the battery but the solenoid that is attached to the starter motor
because the gears are clicking on each other when they spin.
Low battery voltage .?
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.
most of the time just a clicking sound when trying to start a car means that the starter or solonoid is bad. try changing the solonoid first and then the starter. Hope this helps.
The Cherokee Laredo usually has an electromagnet in the relay box to close or open the circuit in the fuel pump relay. When it is faulty, it will make more attempts to click on or off and that repetitive process causes the annoying clicking sound.
That is a sign or dead battery or battery terminals are corroded
The battery is dead , or there is a lose wire some where or the ground is lose. Also the starter can be bad or the wires could be lose.
Check the leads to the starter and also if the battery has a full charge (should be around 12.4 volts). There may be a short in the wiring, fried starter solenoid or a wiring issue.
Could be low battery power. Not enough to start the engine.
