The solenoid appears to be functioning, which leaves the starter motor itself and the heavy duty contacts within the solenoid. If you have access to a test light or voltmeter, hook either tester between an unpainted engine ground (like a bolt) and the wire which comes from the battery positive terminal to the solenoid. the light should come ON or the meter reads 12 volts. If ok, set the emergency brake, then test the starter connection while someone tries the starter. If no light (or meter reading), replace the solenoid. If you get light or meter reading, then replace the starter.
If ur getting a clicking noise when u attempt to start it sounds like the starter drive ingaging into the flywheel but the starter isn't turning. Check ur battery to make sure it is fully charged and get a load test to make sure it is ok. Next check the connettions to the battery. Ur Problem wasn't complete--if crossing terminals at the starter the engine turns over it is the starter soloid, if it just clicks it is the battery or connections

Battery died. Charged and Checked good and reinstalled. In ignition key "on" position oil lights etc turn on as normal. In "start" starter motor does not activate. No loud clicking. Looking for manual trouble shooting list of things to look at and some illustrations (where's the starter?). Can starter be short started with a screw driver for ops check as in older cars? I haven't worked on cars since the early '80's. Much forgotten.


Easiest way to locate the starter is to follow the positive wire off the battery connection to the starter. Once you have located he starter I would put a voltmeter on the positive lead and check to see if there is any voltage reading at the starter ... 1990 Buick Century

1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS. Starter clicks when I hit the key like it is engaging. However, it will not spin the motor. Checked for power at the starter and I have full power. Checked the power at the switch and there is full power there too. So I replaced the starter. The exact same problem is still there.


You spent too much money or you have a whole lot more to spend. Bench test your starter beside your car to see if it works not connected to your car. If your car is a standard, push the car in neutral and put it in drive. See if the engine turns over ... 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse

I turn the key and i get the constant fast clicking noise, and the car wont start. I was wondering if the battery is flat, or if the alternator or the starter motor has had it. The lights are still on inside but they seem a little dimmer. Please help :-) thanx.


Your battery is drained/not fully charged. The fast clicking noise comes from your starter, the starter selnoid is clicking, however there isn't enought amp to turn over the selenoid to roll over the engine. You can try jumping it using another car, ... 1996 Toyota Corolla

Our R reg Sharan will not start. The engine will not turn over when the key is turned but there is a click. The side lights stay on, and dip just a little when the key is turned. The Main head lights dip completely when the key is turned. Is it the starter motor or a flat battery or something else? I have selected microbus in the list provided but it is a Sharan from 1997.


Given the light dimming symptom, the problem is either just a weak battery or the starter has failed.\015\012\015\012Charlie ... Volkswagen Microbus

Starting problems Frequently my engine won't start. When turning the key, you can hear the starter relay clicking, but the starter motor won't turn. Some days it starts right away, others after a few clicks, and others after 30-40 clicks. But it always starts. And it starts strongly, not like when the battery is weak. I can see no link between whether the engine is cold or hot. I've replaced the battery, cleaned the contacts on the battery. I suspect the starter motor, but I would have expected


It sounds like either the starter relay or the solenoid the contact points in it may be burnned if so it wont make a good connection ... 2001 Chrysler Concorde

In an attempt to take my blower motor off in my truck to examine a clicking sound that was happening when I turned my fan on the lowest speed, I found out that while 3 of the 4 5.5mm screws that hold it on are accessible and one seems to be impossible to get to. Is there anything other than maybe the glovebox i have to take off to access that screw? I know the sound is coming from that motor because if i unplug the connector the fan doesn't turn on and the clicking noise is not there.


Wrench or a swivel socket should get it. you may need to take out glove box. ... 2006 Chevrolet Colorado
