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.

A Ticking


It could be the voltage regulator trying to charge a dead battery. (It could burn out if you keep doing this)

Or it could be a lifter noise, rust on the belt pulley from sitting in one position for two years.
Buy a good battery, change the oil and put some fresh gas and fuel stabilizer. It might be nothing serious!

Car won't start


Nahh, its not that bad!
Its either your battery who is empty and need to be charged again or its the electronic box who need to be restarted.
Sometimes if the battery gets empty it can give the electronic box wrong signal, therefore it needs a restart, it can only be done at the ww service center. But try first to charge your battery, i think that will get your car to start again. The ticking noise and the non functioning door is because your empty battery.

You can either charge the battery (the best way to do it) or try to ger someone to tow your car to start and then drive for 45-50 minutes, thar will also charge your battery.

Good luck to you

Ticking noice


If your not already, try using a genuine Nissan oil filter next time you get your oil changed. Most aftermarket filters allow the oil to drain back so when you start up cold the filter is in essence dry and not primed most likely causing the noise your experiencing. This would be the first thing I would reccommend checking.
