Car Won’t Start Clicking Noise Inspection Service

Cost of a Car Won’t Start Clicking Noise inspection

It depends on the type of car you drive and the auto repair shop you go to. Our mechanics are mobile, which means they don't have the overhead that repair shops have. They provide you convenience by coming to your home or office.

Why won’t your car start but you hear a clicking noise? Here are common reasons:

A clicking noise when attempting to start your car and no engine movement generally means that the battery is too low to crank the engine or there may be a poor connection at the battery. If the battery and the connections are fine, then the starter may have stopped working.

  • Poor battery or terminals: Batteries have a limited life expectancy, and terminals can loosen or wear away.
  • Poor starter: This should be apparent from the reaction to the key. If nothing occurs at all when you turn the key, the starter may have gotten to the end of its life.
  • Ignition problem: This could be because of defective contacts in the ignition switch, or in the wiring.
  • If there is a grinding noise when you turn the key.

  • Starter is bad: Do not continue cranking the engine

What to expect?

An expert mobile mechanic will come to your office or home to check the source of car won’t start clicking noise after which a detailed inspection report with cost and scope of repairs will be provided to you.

How it's done?

Fuel system, charging system, and ignition system will be inspected by an expert mechanic to look for any mechanical damage. The expert will use an alternative source of fuel like a shot of brake or carburetor via a vacuum line. If the car momentarily starts and then dies, this indicates that you have an issue with fuel delivery.

How important is this service?

This is a serious issue that can leave you stranded anywhere if not dealt properly. Its better you book an expert mechanic to carry out a comprehensive inspection immediately.

My truck wouldn't start, and I knew it wasn't the battery. Booked an appointment online and the mechanic showed up quickly. He diagnosed the problem quickly and correctly, gave a fair quote right on the spot and explained everything. My starter was replaced and I'm back in business. I can't recommend highly enough. Also, definitely go for Instamek PRIME. It got me a good discount on my repair... and now I get maintenance service calls, and roadside assistance.read more

InstaMek got me going again after my vehicle was incorrectly jump-started at a parking facility. Quick, professional service.

Came on Sunday to help start my car. Fixed the fuse. Mechanic knew exactly where to look and fix. They were also polite to deal with.

Absolutely top class service! My car wouldn't start and literally within 5 mins my car was up and running and they didn't even charge me for the service just for the diagnostic and it's been about a week now with no issues. This company genuinely cares about the service they give and they even followed up to see if everything went well. Im definitely going to be using this service again in the... future and I'm going to tell all my friends and family just how affordable, reliable and convienent the service they deliver is!read more

Great service! My vehicle wouldn't start in the parade of my building. InstaMek was able to troubleshoot it and get it started. It wasn't possible to make the repairs since it required raising it but they were very helpful in explaining the cause of the problem and what needed to be done to fix it
