Re: Clicking

Chilton manual:
1. Faulty connections to battery terminals or battery posts
2.Faulty battery
3.Automatic transmission not in park or neutral
4.broken wire to starter.
Starter motor pinion jamed, solenoid, ignition switch, relay, or transmission range sensor bad.
Most likely bad negative or positive connection at cable terminal.

What he said!!! Maybe to make it just a bit easier try dis connecting your battery and getting a wire brush after your terminals... Even if they already look clean trust me it can happen.... If that still doesnt work take your battery up to autozone and have them test it. That's a free easy way to eliminate that possibility. Then your next one is to check the ground wire. If you follow your ground wire from your battery it should run to either the frame or the engine or both. Im sure someone else on here can tell you exactly where it runs to. Anyways you need to check and make sure that connection is good and making good contact. Sometimes you can have a second person go to start the car and listen for where the ticking is coming from. Sometimes it's the starter and sometimes it's a connection arcing. Hope this helps good luck!

Re: Clicking

The clicks you are hearing are most likely a relay clicking.
If it won't start then you are hearing the starter solenoid (relay) and that usually means you do not have sufficient voltage to start the engine.
Like stated above, clean your battery terminals, check all of your ground connections (especially the one to the engine) and have your battery tested.
