I have worked on vehicle were the starter clicking it was a faulty starter. Check battery voltage it should be around 12 Volt's. If voltage is correct. Have starter check. Worse case scenario I worked on a vehicle that starter clicking and engine was frozen.

Your battery is dead and alternator may not be charging. Try a jump start. If it starts, check voltage with engine running. If voltage is less than 13, remove the alternator and have it tested.

SOURCE: 2003 Chevy S10 won't start

Are you sure its the starter? did you try it in neutral? could be park neutral switch, or ignition switch, or if its a standard shift maybe it has a switch on clutch that it has to be depressed to start and its bad. As far as jump starting you cross the maine or big post on starter to small or little post on starter to do that, on a v6 starter it on the right side under exhaust manafold, and i think its on the same side on a 4 cyl.

Next time it won't start turn headlights on and see if they dim when you turn key to start, if they dim its most likely starter, if they don't dim possible starter switch, Have you tried to start it in neutral position? Try that, if it starts in neutral than its park neutral switch, if not could be starter switch, Just make sure you chk. all fuses and any relays associated with ignition first.

Try to start it and it clicks a few times and usually starts but last night didn't. Is it my starter or something else?


Hi if the clicking noise you hear is coming from the bottom of the engine then this indicates the problem is with the starter, you can try hitting it with a hammer a couple of times (the starter that is not the car) this should get it starting if you need to use it.

once the starter has been replaced you will have no problems starting the car.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz could you rate this post as i have loads of unrated posts
thanks

1500 Ram wont start, no crank no click nothing. Air cond and dash lights work just fine just wont start. Battery is ok tried to jump, no luck, put in different battery no luck.


First thing is to check is the ignition fuse/relay under the hood for a blown fuse or bad relay. If everything is ok then set parking brake with truck in park/netural and have someone to turn the ignition over to start and at the same time use a test light to check for fire at the starter solenoid. If no fire then the ignition switch or netural switch on transmission is causing the problem. If you do have power to the starter solenoid then the problem would be either the solenoid or the starter drive locked up on the flywheel. Be sure to remove the negative wire from the battery if you need to remove the starter. Hope this will help you.

Random dead battery with 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 4.7 ltr QC


The starter solenoid has a bad contact inside in delivering current to the starter. When it is cold the battery weaker than normal so it can not provide enough current to the starter since there is big resistance path from the bad solenoid preventing enough current to turn the starter to crank up the engine. Replacing the starter solenoid will take care of this problem.

'99 dodge diesel won't stay running


You did not say if lift pump was delivering, so I am assuming it is not. When you pulled the fuel filter, was it full / under pressure? If not, lift pump most likely the problem. cracked fuel lines in system may also be the cause. I rec. replacing lift pump, if that does not solve problem, look for cracks / breaks in fuel line prior to lift pump.
