Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. Have you inspected the connection on the battery and on the starter for corrosion? Are they all tight? When you try to start the vehicle, what happens?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
they all seem good ,
It turns starter for a second or two, then nothing....if you persist it begins to make clicking sounds, as if battery is no-good ....I've tried another battery and same thing occurs.? .Jeff

I'm willing the bet that your starter is no good and needs to be replaced. To be positive, you can remove it, and take it to autozone to be tested for free.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the battery is good and you're getting clicking from the starter but it won't crank then you could have a starter issue, a cable or connection issue, or there could be a starter solenoid control issue.

Are you getting a rapid clicking from the engine compartment the whole time the key is held in the crank position?

Or is it a single click?
