You mean when you turn the key you hear buzzing sound but starter is not turning motor?
Sounds like automatic decompressor valve not activating on cam and starter motor cannot/will not be able to turn crank against compression. see if you can spin the motor by hand. If not you need to replace valve decompressor gear inside motor.

Have a load test done on the battery. If it checks out good, take a voltmeter to the battery and have an assistant rotate the engine. If you see more than a 2 volt drop when the car is being started, the starter is heading south.

SOURCE: The car refused to start, made clicking sounds @

First, put the old solenoid back on and see if you get the original clicking noise. If yes, you either wired the new one wrong or got a wrong and/or defective part. Your clicking noise can come from several places. First, make sure the battery is good and charged up. Dirty/corroded battery cable ends (yes, even if the lights and radio work), bad connection at the starter, bad solenoid, bad battery cables. A dead starter may engage but not turn, making a kind of click noise too. Take the starter out and get it checked. Remote possibility that it is the ignition switch in the steering column is adjusted wrong or bad. A jump from the positive battery cable to the small post on the solenoid should engage the starter.

Possibly you have your main power lead hooked to the starter side of solenoid.

94 ford e350 van wont turn over when I turn the key it just makes a buzz sound good battery checked cables


Sounds like either the starter or starter solenoid. With the key in the "On" position try using one side (either positive or negative) of a pair of jumper cables. Locate the starter solenoid and clip one lead to the battery side of the solenoid, and just quickly touch the other lead to the other side of the solenoid. If the starter engages, replace the solenoid. If not, carefully check the positive cable from the battery to the solenoid for cracks, exposed wire, corrosion and good, tight connection. Good luck.

1993 mbz 300e won't turn over, battery full charge and buzzing noise from relay area.


hi,

the first thing that I would check is to make sure your battery is fully charged or try and jump the battery using another car battery.
if still no go then I would say that your starter solenoid is bad.
while checking the solenoid/starter double check to make sure your block to body ground cable is secure.

hope this helps,

I would check all the wires going down to the starter. Make sure it is getting 12V. Make sure your wires on the starter are connected tight and they are none that is loose. The starter may not be contacting the flywheel. You might have a piece missing, causing it to slip. Check your starter solenoid. You could try the ignition fuse, it wouldn't hurt. I would check all the wires first. If it is not getting 12V all the time, it is not going to run right. You might have a loose wire down there somewhere. Mia, check all your connection ends. Make sure all the starter wires are connected. May be one loose. Mia, if you need anything, please let me know. I am here to help. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Won't start battery is ok lights, radio windows work makes clicking sound when I turn the key


If the clicking sound comes from the starter solenoid, than the starter solenoid copper contacts are burnt. Those are copper contacts 1/8" thick, but 100 Amper current after thousands times starting the engine, burn them out and turns black.
Replace the solenoid assembly, or the starter solenoid copper contacts and the plunger, or replace the starter with a rebuilted one.

I have a 2001 maximum and it just stop working last night. The battery works good but the car just makes a clickin sound. I mean it wont turn over or anything


NORMALLY THAT CLICKING NOISE MEANS THAT YOUR BATTERY DOESN'T HAVE ENOUGH JUICE TO ENGAGE THE STARTER,THE CLICKING IS YOUR STARTER SOLENOID TRYING TO MAKE A CONNECTION SO POWER CAN GET TO THE STARTER MOTOR,IT COULD ALSO BE A BAD SOLENOID AND OR STARTER.
IF IT TURNS OUT TO BE THE BATTERY YOU MAY HAVE A SHORT SOMEWHERE DRAINING THE BATTERY WHILE IT SITS OR YOUR ALTERNATOR IS BAD AND NOT KEEPING IT CHARGED SUFFICIENTLY.
