Not Start — Clicking Sounds
Description of Problem:
2. If you are unsuccessful in your attempts after a few tries, it is time to take a look under the hood. Take a look at the battery to see if you have corroded or loose cables and clean them or tighten accordingly. Once the terminals are clean and tight, try to start the car again.
3. If you are still unable to start the car, you will need to either charge the battery or obtain a “Jump” to get the vehicle started.
As always, anytime you start a vehicle from a “dead” or discharged battery, allow the vehicle to run a minimum of 20 minutes before turning it off so it can “recharge” the battery and eliminate the need for a boost the next time you start the car.
