4 Answers

My battery is good

Sounds like you might have some shorted wires under the fuse box or a bad connection from battery to starter

The clicking sound is coming from the relay that's listed as ignition could it be the ignition switch I heard there's a recall on them . If I turn it to acc on the ignition none of the gauges work then when I turn it over to start it just clicks at that relay I tried switching it with another and it does the same thing


If you've heard there's a recall all you need to do is call any GM dealership and ask them if your car is included and if its been done yet. You should also have received notification by mail. As for the specific problem I'd be suspicious of the starter since power is clearly being sent out from the ignition switch to the relays. However, as always, diagnose it properly before throwing expensive parts at the problem and hoping it will go away.
