CLICKING UNDER THE HOOD
2003 Ford Taurus • 6 cylinder 4WD Automatic •
Hi, When i tried to start my car today all it did was click. Not one click but alot everytime i turn the key. it's not in the fuse box. i have a 03 ford taurus. What can this be amd how much will it cost to repair?
The first thing i would do is have the battery tested and make sure the battery cable's are clean and tight.Let me know what you find.
We tried to jump it and nothing happened made sure it was clean and tight still nothing
Let's check the battery voltage (snatch it out, take it to auto parts store for thorough, Load Tested) or at minimum see if the headlights burn bright for a minute or so. Most common problem like this is a bad connection. So Methodically take any and every BIG CABLE CONNECTION loose. CLEAN and TIGHTEN WELL--DO NOT SAY, "IT LOOKS GOOD"...JUST DO IT! Start at the battery clamps, where it clamps to the cables....follow POS Cable to solenoid...do all of the big connections there....follow on to the starter, do the starter connection.........then back to the battery, Follow NEG big cable, it should ground to the engine...Do it too!Now just to maybe save you some time...Try It, after each Step of Cleaning and Tightening. If getting nowhere (after a motivated effort!) The Solenoid or the Starter itself may be the problem (the solenoid is what you hear clicking) The starter can be tested for FREE at popular auto parts storesI'm set on a weak battery or bad cable connection...Lets hear good results!--The Medic

If you have a bad or loose connection low charge or the battery is too far gone you won't be able to jump start it.
