You are watching: Jeep makes clicking noise when i try to start it


Hi everyone. So ns went to begin my 06 TJ the various other day, and also it simply makes this really quick clicking noise, and every one of the dash lights come on and also start beeping in ~ me. It won"t also attempt to turn over or start. I had just moved it the day before and there were no issues at all when I parked it. I"m guessing/hoping it"s merely the starter. I cleaned my battery terminals very well as they had actually some corrosion ~ above them, but it do no difference. Before I go with the trouble of crawling under and also pulling the starter, has anyone ever before encountered this? below is a video clip for reference: https://youtu.be/vq-td4Ic8Jo

Could her battery it is in dead? shot jump starting it. If that the starter, it can be the starter solenoid. Provide it a couple of wacks. If that starts, climate you recognize what you need to replace.

Thanks everyone! ns was hoping it was something simple. I haven"t to be driving it much in recent months, so it"s no surprise that the battery is dead/weak. As soon as the weather boosts I will throw it on mine battery tender to watch if I deserve to charge it, or change it.
Problem is, a negative starter solenoid have the right to sound precisely like a an excellent solenoid connected to a weak battery.
I had same sound and also situation, but my no start and also rapid clicking to be really bad battery clamps. Battery was fine. Clamps were a mess. New clamps mounted roadside through AAA, fired tight up!

Agree, Battery has actually an issue; and also a battery tender (not a charger?) most most likely not be capable of charging a dead battery. Today"s maintenance complimentary batteries as soon as dead require to obtain hit with 14v charging. Every the auto components store retailers in mine area test batteries for free so if girlfriend jump start you can possibly get them to inspect the battery.

When jumping, if the run leads don"t have a good connection, or if the other vehicle can"t supply enough juice to overcome the drain of the dead battery and additionally start the Jeep you can still gain clicking. If the battery has been drained badly enough by trying to start it may require replacement. Get the battery properly charged and load tested prior to considering replacing the starter or the battery.
