I would take the battery to your local Auto Parts store and have them test it out. Or U can have your lights on and when U try turning over the car and the lights go out you need to replace battery.

Battery completely drained after 45 mins of listening to cd player without car running,


a healthy battery will take a charge and discharge and be o k -you have several things going on-the ticking noise is some kinda rely that is turning on and off probably because of low voltage-the voltage jumping around sound like the alternator is giving up and is not fully charging battery-you may also have a drain on the battery that doesn't stop when you turn the key off like an extra power amp for the radio- you can take your car to autozone or advanced auto and they will check out the charging system for free and tell you what is going on-cheers Denny

When I try to start my car I hear a ticking noise and it won't start.


The first place you need to start is charging your battery. I've had the same problem as recient as yesterday. After about 5 min with the jumper cables, I was good to go. I hope this helps.

The 12 volt battery(LUCAS 065/3) on my FORD FIESTA 1100cc is 4 years old, in that time i have only driven 1,600 miles as my journeys are usually very local. I make sure i use the car twice a week to keep...


Running so few miles has accelerated the aging of the battery - the battery never had a chance to fully recharge in such small trips -  so now you have to replace it a year sooner than usual.
Just replace it.
