My car started and ran fine untill this morning. All the lights work and windows roll down. Appears to have juice in battery. When I turn the key it does not spin or click or anything. This is the first day we have had 35 dgree weather at the time of starting.

Check your ecm/bcm fuse. I had the same problem changed the fuse can worked fine . Also had a bad signal light caused by faulty signal light socket. put in a new light in signal socket , tried to start car it immediately wstoppede and would not turn over. removed the socket, replaced fuse(again) car started and ran fine. A BAD SIGNAL SOCKET CAN KILL YOUR CAR!!!! !!

The most common problem would be a bad starter. The clicking sound is not always heard in a bad starter. The mentioning of no attempt to turn over shows that the process stopped at start (bad starter) Check the positive cable on the starter for corrosion. Otherwise, you will have to replace the starter. The problem is intermittent,stay aware It might start 2 or 3 times then out of nowhere. it will start give you problems. Avoid the headache, replace the starter.

may be your alternator is gone, when the car is running the battery is out and the alternator takes over, so is got to be your alternator, try to restart your car and if it runs disconect the negative cable from your battery if the car dies the alternator is bad.

You might want to check the battery cables and if there is a smaller chassis wire from the battery. Clean these. It sounds like you lost a ground wire somewhere and it is trying to ground through any wire it can find.

starter wont click because there's not enough "juice" to turn it over. this isnt because of the battery as you have just replaced it. it is due to a bad alternator recharging the battery as you drive. if it were only a fuse it would be the solenoid in the starter. but if it had started after you installed the battery then its not the solenoid. solution: buy a refurbished alternator and
