Since you have just replaced the water pump, you might check the ground at the block. You only hear a single click or repeated clicks coming from the engine compartment.
This is a very common problem:
New battery car won't start just clicks. A faulty starter solenoid or relay. Are the cable clamps tight? Very often this can be due to a low battery.
This may be related to a faulty starter solenoid. My car would not start so we had to get a jump it started fine. When the key is turned to start, if the battery voltage remains at around 12 v and there is again only a click, then the problem.
The starter solenoid is located on the starter and has internal electrical contacts that transmit electricity to the starter. The next day it started okay, but later that night it would not start at all it just did rapid clicking noises. You need to try and jump it to see if it starts.
A three times kia owner. I had new battery installed 2 weeks ago. Alternatively, it’s also important to check whether the new battery is compatible with the system.
This is the switch you turn in the key or it could be part of it that is connected to that mechanism in the steering wheel. When your car won’t start, and all you get is a clicking noise, the battery is usually to blame. Loose, damaged, or corroded battery cables.
To troubleshoot this, turn on all your lights, try to start the car. Are the cables themselves in good shape? Need to find out what is taking a heavy draw on the battery.
It sounds like you may have a problem with the charging system not properly maintaining a charge on the battery. Inspect the condition of the negative cable all the way down to the starter. We put a new battery in it and it still would not start it just clicked once and then nothing.
If you installed a new battery and still have a problem where your car clicks but won't start, the chances are that a system on your car is draining the battery when the car is parked. If everything stays bright during the attempt to crank, the starter solenoid is kicking in (this the click), but the starter is not spinning. Also you should slow charge the battery overnight and see if the car will start in the morning.
If so, the starter could be shorted. Kia won't start up (just goes click, click, click) tags click goes just kia start wont. Replace any parts you had to remove to access the starter.
The clicking sound (usually very rapid) is a result of the battery not generating enough power to cause the starter motor to turn the engine over. A rapid clicking noise when trying to start your car could mean there's something wrong within the electrical system. If you have a test meter check battery voltage with it running.
It should be a little over twelve volts with the car off. An electrical system in your vehicle draws excessive current from. Move the positive lead to the positive battery terminal.
This is the likely cause if all other lights work but your car does not click. If the source of the clicking is electrical, the starter (a small motor energized by the battery that gets the engine running. If you have a volt/ohm meter simply check the voltage across the battery terminals.
When this fails, it may cause a clicking sound and will not allow the starter to. Begin your inspection by making sure the battery terminals are clean and tight, and that the battery cables are in good condition. When the ignition is turned to start, and there's only a click, if the voltage has dropped from about 12.7 to less than 10, it's either the battery or cables.
Check the battery, terminals, and cables. If your starter motor clicks more than once when you attempt to get your car running, there are several possible causes: If the lights go dim, then it is your battery for sure.
However, if you determine that the fuse is working correctly and is not damaged, the real issue here is the ignition switch causing the “car won’t start one click noise” situation. The solenoid is clicking but the starter motor doesn't have enough juice to spin. If the replaced battery car won’t start, the first thing to check is whether you replaced the battery correctly.
Turn on the headlights and the radio then try to sound the horn; Reconnect any connections to the new starter you removed from the old starter. Does the wire going down to the starter get hot or seem to jump around when you are trying to start it?
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. Perhaps your battery's dead, or your alternator, which charges the battery, isn't working correctly.
You turn the key to the “start” position, but the engine does not start; If the plastic wire is damaged or disconnected, a broken fuse might prevent power from getting to the starter relay, causing the car to not start and just click, even with a new battery. It is possible to get a defective battery in a new vehicle, but it is rare, but it could be other problems.
