New battery won't start clickig sound buick century 99


If the clicking sound is coming from the engine area, it is most likely the starter solenoid. If you are sure that the battery is fully charged, then you need to clean your cable ends with a small metal brush and a mix of baking soda and water. the surfaces should be metal looking not chalky or green. It sounds like you just are not getting a good connection. You could also replace the two bolts on the cables.

1st check your battery cables to make sure that they are not corroded with acid, if they are , then clean them with a solution of baking soda and water, take a brush and scrub them, then rinse them of, and make sure they are tight, if it still doesn't start, then have someone check your battery out to see if it has a dead cell in it, if the battery checks out ok, then i would suspect the starter.
