Starter making rapid clicking noise when trying to start car.
My vehicle is having issues starting. I have determined
that it is not a problem with the battery because it
reads at 12.6v when I connect my multimeter. I
replaced the starter with a new one and yet the problem
is still happening. Is it possible the new starter is also
faulty? Or could it be something else? Ignition switch
Only other signs are a weird clicking noise under the
dash in a relay that happens when the car is off. I
believe this relay is associated with hazard lights. If the
hazard lights are switched on then the noise stops, but
a different noise starts in the fuze box under the dash
on the passenger side. This one has the same
regularity as a turn signal clicking, unlike the other
noise which was more rapid-fire.
I also replaced the alternator yesterday because I
believed that to be a problem. AutoZone confirmed that
it was faulty when they tested it in store. Is it possible
the alternator was damaged when trying to start the
car and now it's having trouble again?
Happy to answer any other questions.
