Q: I can hear clicking, but truck won't start.

asked by on

The truck will not start. Power to cabin and dash lights. I can hear some clicking, but the truck will not turn over.

If the lights are fully illuminated, the starter or it’s circuit is the most likely cause of your problem. However, an internal engine problem or problems with the battery could also be the cause. A trained technician will be able to successfully diagnose and repair this problem for you.
