Does no start but it made click sounds near the battery

The click noise was the power solenoid to the starter. If the starter did not rotate then It's a weak battery, bad starter or no power to the starter...loose cable or bad battery ground connection.

Hope this helps you.

1990 stanza car can be pushed and clutch start car.When you turn key on dash lights come on cae will not turn over. put in new battery did not help

Do you get a fairly loud 'click' when you turn the key to 'start'? If so, you need a meter or test light to check if power appears at the starter terminal when the solenoid clicks. If power appears, the starter requires repair or replacement (usually the brushes). If no power appears, then replace the starter solenoid. Hope this helps!
