Car Won't Start Just Clicks

Car Trouble Symptoms
Car won’t start just click noise when the ignition is switch "ON".

Troubleshooting car problems when car wont start with clicking noise on starting
When the car won’t start and only clicking noise is heard during starting is usually an indication of problem involving the battery. Therefore if this kind of problem happens the first thing to be check is the condition of the car battery. To check if the battery is in good condition, do the following diagnosis:

1) Turn the ignition key “ON” - this is the location before turning the ignition key to start the engine.
2) Turn the windshield wiper “ON” and let the wiper operates for about 30 seconds.
3) If the wiper operates very slowly and not the usual speed then we can say that there is a problem with the battery. But, if the wiper operates normally then it’s not a battery problem but rather a problem that involve the starter.

If the battery is not the cause of the problem, we left with only two possible reasons why the car won't start its either the car has bad starter or bad electrical connection. Starter is the device that cranks the engine to start your car, when the starter is gone badly the engine will not start. Now, to determine if the problem is really the starter or it's a bad electrical connection open the hood of the car and locate the starter. Inspect the wires/cable attached to the starter if the wires are tight and secure then it’s in good condition. Therefore, the problem is more likely the starter.

Possible cause why car wont start just clicks only
Bad battery or Bad Starter

How to fix if car won't start just clicks only
If the problem is the starter, bring the car to a reputable auto repair shop and ask the mechanic to confirm the trouble on the starter and replace if necessary. If you want a less cost, you may want to consider replacing it with a rebuilt one since it’s also reliable to use a rebuilt starter to fix the problem of your car that won’t start and clicking noise only during starting.
