Cheapest way to find out is to remove your battery and take it to an auto parts store...they will check it for free and let you know if you have a dead cell or your batte3ry is toast.

FREE is ALWAYS good!

Turn on headlights truck dies battery dead wont start

charging maybe but what is the condition of the battery, will it hold the charge? Sounds like you need a new battery. Check that the cells have a specific gravity within specified range for a healthy battery. Check battery output essentially.... but it does sound like you need a new battery.

What does error code 88888 mean on a 2001 Chrysler 300m?

Multiple clicking indicates a weak battery. Get a slow charger to bring it up gently or, if in a hurry get someone to do a jump start. Once running you will need to check gauges for a charging problem. If no lights indicate a bad charging system, you will need a new battery.

Battery is new, engine won't turn over.

The voltmeter should only go as high as 14-15 volts when the engine is running. I would check for a poor connection between the battery and starter.

First the dash controls went, no power to the gas gauge or temp or speed, then a weak start. Next a clicking sound that stopped the car from starting. New battery and was working when the dash was hit....

Initially it sounded like the typical dash gauge cluster solder problem on the main wiring harness of the dash circuit board, and possibly a low battery charge. Both very easy to fix. Your further description makes me think it might be the BCM (body control module). This is a bit more involved. If the battery is fully charged and battery cables are clean and in good condition, do you get any engine cranking or clicking sounds at all? If not, then I would strongly suspect the BCM. I fixed mine by taking the BCM out of the vehicle (not really too difficult) and locating a resistor on the circuit board labelled 331. There is only one of them with this number. I re-melted the solder on each end of this resistor, and have had no further electrical 'ghost gremlin' problems ever since. (over a year now) You may need to do the same with the solder joints on the dash gauge circuit board wiring harness. This problem has to do with defective solder used around that time period. I had to use these fixes on both a 1996 and a 1998 Voyager. Please post any other questions or diagnostic info.

My car won't start, won't turn over, but it makes clicking noise in dash board, it just lost all gauges on dash board wOnt work, only the speedodometer works, it's security light is on. The clock changes...

sounds like a wire or ground wire is contacting at a pinch point, and grounding out the system. first have the battery voltage checked, it should be no less than 12v, and no more than 14.5v, during cranking it can drop to 8.5v but no less. any new parts installed, such as a ignition switch???/
may need to be reprogramed to match the computer, or just fix a bad connection.

1988 nissan300 zx auto non turbo engine will not turn over battery fully charged just clicks when I turn key sounds like click coming from under dash. All gauges work but when turn key all gauges draw down...

You've got to check remove and clean your battery terminals and the connectors.Also check the main ground on the block from the battery negative terminal. Then check the tightness of the large red wire going to the starter from the positive battery terminal. And lastly, make sure the small push on terminal to the starter solenoid is tight. if not remove it and pinch it hard with your thumb and index finger. Push it back into place and see if it will start. If so while it is running check your charging systenm with a voltmeter,it should read between 13- 14.5 volts. If it does not start then jump the battery from another vehicle and then check the charging system. If your charging system is fine and the next morning you cannot get it to turn over you'll need a new battery.
