Hasan, GS models shares mulitple brake pumps and gets itslef warmed up and oiled automatically when you crank the enigne first thing in the morning...the click sound you are mentioning is the motor and the continous sound is the warming/oiling sound; I didn't quite understand the 10-5 sec your were mentioning; do u need to hold the key in start position to get the engine up and running?

Yes I need to hold the key in start position for 10 t0 15 seconds after that only the engine starts to run. My friend told that have to check the ground wires, I checked, everything is ok but the problem still continues.
