    either loose battery post... or dead battery... jump it and let it run 10-20 minutes... alternator should charge it to full by then... better yet drive it so the alternator can put out its full potential charge.

First you need to find out if the battery is just low?
when you get the click do your lights dim?
possible starter solonoid problem or whole starter ?
you will need a test light to go any farther
let me know

My saturn sl2 alarm starts to beep when I try to start the car and won't stop for about a minute. Car won't start. My power locks have been disabled(over a year now). It started acting strangely and...


This sounds somewhat similar to a problem I had with my 1999 Saturn SL2. There was "burning and arching" on the fusebox and it was replaced. The first few times my car would make an extra beep noise when locked or unlocked and I believe the radio/clock had to be reset. The problem got worse although sporadic. Eventually the car wouldn't start - not even making a clicking noise and a big variety of electrical components would not work or didn't sound right.

1999 Carrera 4 hasn't been driven for about one month. Now it won't start but you can hear this clicking noise from the back. Lights, windows and radio all work. Any suggestions? Thanks.


Make sure your battery is fully charged and all battery connections are clean and tight. If the vehicle still makes the clicking noise when you try to start it, then it is your starter solenoid.

Clock resets at startup


Does your radio stations also reset at start-up or sometimes do they reset? If you battery is weak and it takes a lot of power to start your vehicle it could reset your clock and sometimes clear your radio stations as well.

Car clicks when trying to start


When you try and start the vehicle does all the lights and radio and stuff go off? And does the starter make any weird noises when you try and start it? I would go to the parts store and ask them to check your battery if you can drive it there. lol..........they will be happy to check it out for you. Still acts like it could be a battery issue.

1999 GMC Suburban. no sound from radio


there is a plug at the back of the radio connecting it to the vehicle wiring loom. If you can get at thes plug, either from below or by removing the radio unit, make sure the plug is tight and secure. I can't think that the amp has gone or you would have lost all sound, so this is more than likely the problem.
