- May I have the year, model and engine size of your Hyundai?- Does the click noise appear to be coming from under the hood?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
2007 Hyundai Veracruz V6. Yes, click from under hood.

Great, thanks! Ok. The 1-click is the common sign of a failing Starter Solenoid. Many times after repeated attempts you may get it to start, but eventually it will completely fail. On this vehicle, the Solenoid is mounted to the side of the Starter Assembly and is usually replaced as such (the new starter comes with a new solenoid. It's just cheaper and easier this way.). Inspect the connections at the solenoid and make sure there are tight and free of corrosion. If the inspection checks ok, replace the Starter Motor Assembly should solve the problem. It sells for around $279 (Dealer-suggested retail. Aftermarket version about $75 cheaper) and the Labor Time Guide calls for 1.8 hours to complete the job. Labor rates vary from shop to shop, so what you pay for labor will effect the bot***** *****ne. For a job of this type, a "fair" labor rate can be anywhere from $85-$125 per hour.

Hi! I noticed this question was still open and I wanted to check in and see how you made out? Did replacing the Starter solve the problem? Did you have any other questions on this issue?
