I have a 2010 Ford Fiesta Mk7 diesel that clicks/ticks once when I turn the key. This will happen a few times (say, between 3 and 10 times), and then (usually) it starts. It's getting worse and today didn't start at all. The battery seems fine, but I might only think that because usually the engine starts. Could it be the starter motor or solenoid?


  • suspect starter motor, or starter circuitry. try banging the starter with a mallet/hammer the next time it gets stuck like that. – agent provocateur Feb 25 '19 at 18:48
