Question about 1997 Saturn SL
Here's the history, i have a 97 saturn, one day it wouldn't start, so i bought a new battery, it started, a wk later, it wouldn't start again, so i was told it had to be the alternator, so i got it replaced, the next day, it didn't start, so i took it to get diagnostics, told it was the starter, replaced the starter, now my hubby drove it for a wk, then this morning, everything just started shutting down while he was driving, even the mph was slowing down, so he pulled off to the side, now it won't start, it makes a clicking noise, we tried to jump it, it won't work. i have no clue, he said he noticed the battery cables didn't look so good, could those little cables be causing this expensive problem?
Cables for starting your car carry the supply to the starter from the battery if they are loose or burnt no
power will get trough to turn over your car and will not charge the battery try all the small things first
fuse holders are clean and thight all cables are ok clean not burnt
