Answers :

One possibility is that the battery terminals are either corroded or not tight to the battery posts. Second, the battery itself may have seen its days. Try another battery of simply replace it. If the problem still exists, the have a mechanic inspect the main wiring from the battery to fuse block. Your alarm device may have its own battery source. The tick tick are the cars systems relays trying to engage, but there is not enough power for them to engage.

I have a 1996 Honda Accord LX 5 speed manual trans. The car had some battery trouble, and when I went to get it charged; the tech said that it was so low he didn't think it would work. I came back, and to my surprise the battery was fully charged. I hooked it to the car, and everything was fine; started right up. About two days later I got in to start the car, and nothing. Frustrated I gave it a week before checking it out again, and now it is making a clicking noise. The clicking is coming from

Wrong oil I put the wrong oil 5-20 instead of 5-30 in it and about 3 weeks later it started to click or tick. I then changed the oil again and then looked in the owners manual and it said not to use 5-20. When I was changing the oil, I noticed that the filter had "ooze" falling out of it. When I finished the oil change I started the car and it still "clicked or ticked". I think the whole engine is "oozed" up. Is there any fixes for this?


I wouldn't worry much unless it lasts for more than a few weeks after the next oil change. What you're probably hearing is the valves rattling. This is because of the very low consistency of the oil. I wouldn't recommend 5w20 for any engine pers ... 2003 Pontiac Grand Am

My 2006 BMW 5 series fails to start. Lights and gauges come on, but not even a click when turn key. tried both keys. checked battery. 4 days later tried ignition and car operated normally, starting, etc. for 6 days. overnight same problem occurred, but two days later, still not starting.

Starting Issue On occasion, my 2000 3.5L Intrigue will not start. I can hear a "whirring" noise under the hood, the lights come on, all electrical systems seem okay, I just put in a new battery. Sometimes I'll disconnect and reconnect the battery and there will be a "click" sound. The car then starts. However, We just spent three hours one night, 70 miles from home, and nothing worked.

I was on vacation for ten days. When I returned I used the Echo to go to a store. It started well and I had no problem starting it to come home. Three hours later I tried to start it again and there was no noise at all except for the fan starting as well as the radio. I cleaned the battery poles- no go. I then jumped the battery with my other car and still no go. I do not hear a click nor does it turn over. What are the possibilities?

My car won't start. It doesn't even make a click. After I turn the ignition on it takes a minute for the dash lights to come on and then they start blinking, and I hear a noise from the fuse box, I think. Could it just be a low battery? It ran with no problem, then it wouldn't start 3 hours later.


The battery cable could be loose or corroded. Check your terminals and the cable going to the starter. ... 2002 Saturn L-Series

The car just recently will not start sometimes, not all the time, and the security light will come on in the dash. The battery is full but all it will do is click once then the light comes on. The next time at a later day it may fire right up like nothing is wrong. Is this just the starter going out or do I have a problem with my security system?

I have a 2003 Chevy Impala. I ran my car with no oil and now I'm hearing a loud ticking/knocking noise coming from under my valve cover. I added 2 bottles of oil after finding out that I didnt have any and my car sounded and ran just fine. It wasnt until like 2/3 weeks later that I started to hear the ticking/knocking noise. It was quiet and came and went until i drove it once more, now it ticks all the time and its somewhat loud. Can anyone help me please and let me know what you think it

Clueless... I own a 95 Passport and for some reason my car would start but before I could even put it in drive, the car shut off on me and this continued to happen until a couple of days later when I tried to start it again it didnt even turn over this time and there was a loud clicking noise from my engine and everytime I try to start the car I always hear the clicking. So is there any chance that if I was to fix the clicking, my car would start up again or are the problems entirely different t

I have a 2000 Lexus RX300 and had a remote car starter installed at Best Buy in October. It usually works fine, but twice after I've pushed the remote button, the lights go on, but the car starts making a ticking sound...about ten seconds later it tries to start the car again and it makes the same ticking sound. The car then will not start with the key. I've had to have the battery jumped to get it to work again! Is there something wrong with my car or the car starter?

Having an issue (since I got the car 10 years ago) with the car (not sure where the click sound is coming from) making a single clicking sound when turning the key to start the car. The car always starts but sometimes takes a couple turns (and clicks) of the key. Thought it was a sticky relay as I've replaced the starter/solenoid/battery and none fixed the problem. Was going to replace the relay last night, but could not locate an ignition/starter relay on the vehicle. Does this vehicle have
