I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Hello and welcome! I'm Billy and i will assist you with this.

My apologies for the delay, thank you for your patience.

Is the clicking sound in dash, or from the starter in engine bay?
did you try boost starting?
which exact make, model and engine do you have?
