    does the engine turn over at all?. if it turns over slowly and sound laboured then as youve changed the battery(assuming its a good charged battery) the first of you need to check is the condition of the leads to the starter and main earth. then its probably best to get an auto electrician to check the current draw on the starter motor itself. if it doesent turn over you need to check for feed to the starter at the main pos and the solinoid when cranking for good voltage.

Chevy tracker alternator


Sounds like a bad connection or a bad battery cable. Are the battery cables clean and tight on both ends ?
Yes the engine should crank if the battery is charged no matter what condition the alternator is in.

Even a new battery will go dead if the car is running on the battery instead of the alternator.
Check alternator output.
First charge the battery up.
Then check voltage with a meter from Harbor Freight ($3).
Should be 12.5.
The start engine and rev it up.
Should go over 14.
But also clean and grease battery terminals, alternator terminals, and check engine ground strap.

2004 Kia Rio Won't Start Clicking Noise Battery is GOOD


My 2004 Kia Rio just started losing compression and died on me. I tried starting it and it only clicks. I checked the battery cables and they are not corroded and very tight. Could it be the battery or the alternator not charging the battery? there is no water in the oil and it's not the water pump.

Bad starting


what do you mean "bad starting"

starter dosnt engage?(starter engauges but dosnt catch flexplate or flywheel, maybe dosnt engauge at all)
barely turns over? (like theres no battery causing hard crank)

you can test your battery by starting the car with the headlights on, if the headlights go dim the battery is bad. your battery could be out of date or the alternator could be bad and not charging the battery.
