If the battery is completely dead - you need a new battery - if the battery is relatively new check the water in it let it charge by hooking up jumper cables to another vehicle for 5 -7 minutes and see if you get anything if so the battery needs to be charged - you need to go get the alternator check RIGHT AWAY because it is not charging the car when its running as it should

Fiat 500 2012 don't start even don't start using a jump starter.

If it's still under warranty, best you take it to the dealer. When you jump start, does the starter turn over ? Engage and turn the engine ? or do you hear the solenoid engaging ?
There are many potential issues that can cause this.

When cold starting my 1.6l petrol car with automatic choke the engine just constantly turns over but fails to start. there is a spark at the plugs and it's getting fuel. It does not even give

Your timing belt/chain may have jumped a tooth. Have someone crank the engine while you watch the easy the engine belts as they turn. TheThey should rotate in sync. Then pull#1 plug and check for timing Alignment for top dead center. It's really helpful to use repair manual for locating the timing marks to do this procedure

2007 sonata thought the battery was dead so I tried to jump it off. It would not even make a clicking nosie when I turned to starter over.

First check both cables to the battery, are they cleanly connected to the starter/engine, clean at battery posts, Did you jump correctly, placing positive red on negative will give a large spark and may have damaged electric relays or fuse, best to go black on metal component on engine and red to positive side of battery. Even if the engine is locked up there will be a clunk of some kind. No sound at all means no electrical connection

What is wrong when you turn the key to start and the radio and all the instruments turn on but the starter doesn't click and the engine doesn't turn on even after trying to jump start it

Dead battery

Dangerous practice to try & jump a dead battery

The battery cables could be loose at either end or corroded internally

Most likely the battery is worn out, if original to car
since it was new, or the starter solenoid is worn

You do not want to jump any vehicle made after the
year 2000 or your asking for possible problems with
todays electronics.

You need a good battery that has been tested & fully
charged, then only jump with a jump pack,not another car

06 pontiac grand prix wont start no clicking when you turn the key over even jump starting the battery, has dash lights & radio & parking lights. battery tested good. put a used starter & altinator on

Used parts such as starters and altinators don't last. It might **** but it sounds like you need to buy a new starter,altinator, and battery. Or just start with buying one at a time.

Have a1997 jeep wrangler that wont start changed ignition could it be my starter

Yes it could be the starter, it could be the battery if the engine doesn't turn over, it could be a grounded power line to the starter. Even if the battery is showing proper volts it may not have the amperage to turn the motor over, it could be the solenoid itself. I recommend you 1. try jumping the vehicle. If the engine cranks when jumped but not without a jump then replace your battery. If not I recommend you get the Haynes repair manual on your vehicle for all of the troubleshooting and isolating steps.
