You might have a bad battery. Have the battery checked and the alternator.
The alternator should put out 14 to 15 volts. If there is an autozone near you, take it there, they will check them free of charge.

My pacifica clicks when i try to start it all lights come on but wont start is it the starter or battery? battery is corroded

Ok, here are a few things to do and check.
1. can you jump the car using jumper cables, if so then battery is likely weak.
2. If so then turn car off, clean battery terminals and cable ends, undo negative cable first then positive. Clean both then install positive then negative.
3. If 1 and two do not work have the battery voltage checked it should be around 13 volts at normal charge if not then the battery may have a bad cell which can cause the car to not start even if jumped.
4. If battery is fine then the solenoid on the starter has gone bad. The solenoid is the thing in the starter that causes the starter gear to engage isth the gear on the motor to spin it to start the car.

Warning, batteries contain harmful acid which can injure you please take the normal care required when working with batteries and jumper cables.

Car ran 2 days ago but doesn't start now!

I would start with the battery. Also check the connections. White and green colors at the battery terminals cause major corrosion/resistance. this can also not let the battery to be jumped. Could be you need to change the cables. Batteries can die also and not be jumped. If they loose a cell, it won't take a charge and the amperage goes to pot.

Ok, ihave had problems wiht this car from day one, to make a long story short, when ever i arrive at my destiation after driving it for a while, it wont start wheni try to turn it on, it won't turn over,...

I would definitely try to see if the battery connections are completely clean and shiny when removed from the battery.

If it starts when it's jumped, it bypasses these connections and adds amperage to the starter.

If the lights don't dim when you turn the key and it's under the car's battery power, it could mean that a full connection to the battery doesn't exist.

Looking at the connections may not be enough. In many cases it may look metallic, but still be contaminated with acid and what not.

2006 Chevy Cobalt wont start. It doesnt turn over. All i can hear when i try to start it is a rapid clicking sord of sound. Any ideas!?

This means your battery is dead. Whether it's from a catastrophic failure of the battery, or something ran it down is to be determined later, but for now you should be able to jump start it to get it where you need to go. Be prepared for it to not start again once you shut it off, so make sure you're someplace you can get a jumpstart, or fix the car. If you charge the battery, or jump it and run it for a while, if it doesn't start again, you have a bad battery. If the alternator is bad, you'll get a big failure of the gauges and lights, and it will quit running altogether. If you're nearing about 60,000 miles, your alternator is running out of time anyways, so be prepared for that one.

Battery has 13 volts. The radio, blower fan, windows etc work, but when you try and start it all it does is click. Started yesterday able to start it after hitting the battery connectors. Put it in the...

If you have replaced the starter and the battery is charged, it sounds to me that the problem is the solenoid. The starter solenoid will be in the engine compartment. Open the hood. It will be located on the passenger fender well. It will have red battery cables going to and away from it. There will be a small gauge wire, blue/red that can be jumped. Pull the blue/red wire just enough to where it is connected but to where you can see the bolt that it is connected to. Use a wire to jump across the blue/red connection to the wire on either side of the solenoid. If the vehicle cranks, then the probalem is the solenoid, replace it and it will take care of your problems. Picture below will give you an idea as to what the solenoid looks like.

Take care of cranking 1st, check battery see if it's good, try to get a jump start see if it will turn over, could be a bad alternator or battery.

Car starts with jump and drives but wont start by itself

well if the altenator is charging it will run after getting a jump, you replied you put a battery charger on it but that dont mean the cold cranking amps are good or it could have a dead cell. I would have the battery tested for sure. If you didnt drive far after jump the altenator may be bad but having the battery charged and still does it tells me it is least likely. If the battery tests good the cables could be corroded under the sheath where you cant see. There are other reasons but from what you have posted sounds like you need a battery most auto stores test them for free (load test also)

Camaro wont turn over

First, clean your battery cables with a wire brush so you know you have a good connection from your battery. If that doesn't do it, it's most likely your starter or selenoid.
