Truck Wont Start Just Clicks Once. Because the starter is not getting enough electricity to stay powered and crank the engine, the system’s repeated attempts make a clicking sound. I replaced the battery believing it would be the case, however it just clicks now.
If battery is fine, then go to the starter and sometimes tapping it with a hammer like pd298 said can help. A dead battery is the most common cause of a vehicle that makes a clicking noise but doesn’t start. Looking for some advice, help, point me in the right direction etc.
Today I Went To Attempt To Drive My Truck.
If it is anything less than battery volts when you turn ignition to 'start mode' then check for resistance in the circuit. I replaced the battery believing it would be the case, however it just clicks now. My car does not start.

If The Solenoid On The Starter Is Just Clicking Id First Make Sure The Connection From The Battery To The Starter Is Good, Tight And Clean.
In 20 seconds you can become part of the worlds largest and oldest community discussing general motors, chevrolet and gmc branded pickups, crossovers, and suvs. So your truck won’t start because it doesn’t have enough power to fully energize the electromagnet inside the starter solenoid. Also had the starter tested which tested good.
If The Voltmeter Doesn't Show Any Voltage It Means That The Relay Is Not Working.
The magnetic field keeps on failing, so the solenoid spring keeps on snapping back. The single click, attempting to start the car, is typical of a bad starter. Check for dirty connections on the copper link from the solenoid output stud to the starter fields.

Both batteries read 11.8 volts. Took the battery to parts store and it was bad. Wont crank or anything, just a single click.
