If the car does not then you need to look at either the starter or the battery.

you can remove the battery first and get it to your local national chain autoparts store and they will test it for you to make sure that it is indeed good.

Same goes for the starter on the car if you have the abitlity to remove the starter, they will test it for you.

Have your alternator tested.Your car will not stay running if the alternator is not producing enough power to keep the battery charged.Also have your battery tested and fully charged.Make sure your cables are in good shape.

1998 Toyota Camry --- car intermittenly won't start -- doesn't click like a bad starter but simply won;t turnover like the battery is dead - eventually it starts - brand new battery 1 month old??


When the bushes in a starter get worn, it can cause the armature to rub on the magnetic poles (poleing) This can cause the starter turn slow or not at all
The sintered metal bushes are like bearings. Not to be confused with carbon brushes which are the electrical connectors.
When a starter clicks, it is the solenoid you can hear.supplying power through the brushes.

A starter that is poleing,often stops in a place where it isnt rubbing, and works fine the next start.
There can be other problems with a starter , perhaps one of the brushes is sticking, or the solenoid.
When it happens a tap with a hammer on the starter or solenoid, while a friend turns the key, is enough to get it working( this isnt a fix but might get you started in an emergency)

There is also the possibility of a loose or dirty cable connection, from when the new battery was installed
