[DML] Re: Loud Clicking Noise From Engine Area, Car Wont Start



Starter solenoid, the small round box mounted on top of the starter. 
Replace it or open it up and replace the copper contactor. This is 
pretty common on "start it once a week" cars because you usually have 
to crank it more than normal. 

But first just make sure the battery is good.
