Question about 1993 Chrysler Lebaron
Every now and then my 93 lebaron would make a funny clicking noise when turning the key, sounded like it wasn't getting enough juice to start. I would turn it a couple more times and it would eventually start. This morning it did same thing, would just click, so I put a battery charger on and tried again, it would just click real fast when turning the key, tried a couple more times and just clicking, took charger off and tried starting again and it fired up. I let it warm up and I started driving, about 1/4 mile down the road the car completely died, engine and all electrionics died, when trying to restart nothing will happen. Don't think it the alternator or the starter, i tested battery and still had a lot of juice and the starter is still clicking, been told might be a relay fuse, don't know where they are in the car, could someone please help thanks Todd
From what you describe, my guess is that eventually you will replace the starter

the most common cause of this by far is lights left on by defective switchs, these include the map lights in the visors, the glove box light due to a defective switch, the trunk light and the hood light if equipped, check it at night and look for a faint glow, the other much less common cause is the alternator has a defective diode and allows a small current to pass to ground drawing the battery down..

What do you mean by bump started? The lights and radio can work, but the battery may be too weak to crank the engine over. The best thing to do would be to drive it to a parts store, where most offer free check of battery and charging system (if you can drive it. If not, 1st remove battery and bring in for testing). The click you hear is classic low battery symptom, although it can be other things. So, 1st get the free test, and post results back here. How old is the battery? (and answer 2 questions!) Thanks

seems your battery has already been discharged by the fog lamp! recharge or buy a new one, but you should fix first the fog lamp before hooking your battery! check for stuck -up relay!

If the click is one click then that points to the starter. Make sure the battery connections are tight. If it clicks like a machine gun then it is either the battery or a bad connection. Good battery voltage is 12.6 or more and 13.6 when running. I don't know tour skill level of electricity.

Whats the battery voltage when you turn the key on or try to crank it? Have you checked to make sure the terminals are clean?
An almost dead battery will still read 12 volts until there is a load on it. Then you will see the voltage drop to almost nothing. Checking the battery voltage with the key on or with the headlights on will give you a better picture of the health of the battery. Since it starts and runs with a jump I would say a new batter is in your future.
