I turned off the AC panel, turned the key counterclockwise, set it back to off, then back to on and then it started back up. I took a few seconds in between each turn of the key. Hope this works

Dodge Caravan clicking noise?

Why is my 2004 Mercury Monterey make a clicking noise and won't start?

I would suspect the battery has been discharged, is defective, or you have loose or corroded battery terminals. Remove and clean the terminals and if that does not solve the problem charge the battery with a battery charger. If it will not take a charge then replace the battery.

If your 96 Nissan won't start and when you turn the key there is a rapid clicking noise in the engine-How can you tell if it's the starter or a switch?

The clicking noise is most likely relay chatter. If you turn the key and hear a clicking noise and the engine does not crank, this usually a sign of a low battery (or a short). Check the battery first. If the battery is good there may be a short in the electrical system. Start with the ignition switch. Remove the four screws on the bottom of the steering column. Then lift off the top half of the steering column. Inspect the wiring and try to tighten any loose connections. Make sure the pos. & neg. battery leads are in good order (especially the neg. lead.)

What makes a clicking noise?

That's your silanoid.. if you follow the + battery wire it leads you there, a lot of newer cars have it located inside the starter.. but that is usually a sign you need more power, try chargeing the battery or jumping starting it.. also make sure your cables are hooked to the battery tightly and the battery nipples and the termanals that hook 2 them are clean and shiny where they touch together. The clicking noise could also be coming from your exhaust system. Loose clamps or a hole in your system could be causing the noise. You may have to repair or replace your exhaust system. You can get advice on the same from magnaflow exhaust systems.

Key making clicking noise and wont start?

Bad battery or bad battery connection. The click is the starter trying to engage, but lacking the power to turn the motor.
