You might want to get a new battery because if it won't start with a boost then your battery might have a dead cell in it

SOURCE: 84 corvette wont start without battery boost....

It might be the starter, if it gets too much use the armature might be too weak and need extra Amps to get it to work right.

SOURCE: car wont start, doesn't even

Its a good bet. Be sure the battery connections are good too.. Flip on the headlights and then try to start it.. have someone watch the lights.. If they go dark. You have a bad battery or bad connection. If the lights stay bright then you need to look at starter connections/starter/starter solenoid.

2000 Silverado 2500 6.0. New starter, new battery. Turns over but no start. I'm at wits end !

Check the alternator. It is likely not working to charge your battery as your car operates. Your battery can sustain a momentary rush of current even when it is low, so this explains why you get a turn-over of the engine shaft. But as it drains quickly and needs a boost. It can also be cabling as well, but check that your battery is getting more voltage as the car operates (that is, after someone gives you a boost to start your car).

The envoy won't turn on but the battery and clicks on but it wont turn over. I'm thinking it might be the ignition or the starter?

Will it start with a boost? If yes, the battery is suspect. There may be enough power for lights and gauges, but not enough to engage the starter motor.

Car wont start got a boost still wont start clicking sounds while tring to start is it the battery or altrnator

It most likely sounds like a starter. If the batt is good and it won't start with a jump than I would think its the starter. If it is easy to reach the starter you can try to hit the starter with a hammer while someone else is turning the key. Be safe and ensure there is no chance that the car will move when trying this.

Car wont start in cold weather...think it may be

Will it start with a boost? Have you had battery fully charged and load tested? Battery tested at a garage, or autoparts stores, are usually free.

Car starts, runs, turns off then sometimes wont start??

how old is the battery? is it the origional? cause if you have to jump it then put a new battery in to solve the problem, most batterys say they are good for about 5 yrs to 8 yrs, depending, but if you jump it that brings life of the battery down... try putting a new battery in, and also check all around the vehicle, in the trunk look at the trunk light make sure it turns off when closed,all interior lights make sure they all shut off,check the glove box light to make sure it is shutting off ETC. cause even tho those are small bulbs if they stay on that will drain a battery quick over night... hope this helps.... GET the new battery that should fix your problem....

Car started fine..stopped, no restart, no click, dead lights on.

try getting a boost for your car.... the battery may be failing. it doesn't take alot of power to turn on the lights... but a huge drain on the battery to start it. if it will not start with a boost i could very well be that the starter has failed. as you attempt to start it... have someone tap the starter with a hammer. if it starts... replace the starter.... if it starts normally with a boost you likely need a new battery
