2003 Yukon Clicking when trying to start

Asked by Nov 16, 2016 at 03:33 PM about the 2003 GMC Yukon SLE 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2003 Yukon and I have been trying to get it to crank, but it won't. It
never turns over and you can hear very rapid clicking in the dash. Also,
when locking the doors with the keyfob, the horn is very faint. The battery is
new and I have tried tapping on the starter while trying to crank it.

Any ideas?

It sounds like your battery is weak or that you have a bad battery connection. I would first clean and tighten the battery terminals and charge the battery. You may need to have the alternator tested.

Hi Full_of_Regrets, I cleaned and tightened the battery terminals and the battery was replaced about 2 months ago. It still just clicks rapidly when trying to crank and the horn is still very faint when locking/unlocking doors from the keyfob.
