Probably a bad battery. have it charged and tested with a load tester. some places don't charge for this because they hope to sell a new battery if needed

Wont start


the clicking noise is usually 2 things, step on try jump starting car and if starts have battery tested as it is probably bad (free testing at most chain auto stores), the other usual problem is that the starter has gone bad, when whoever tried turning off car while driving might have put into start mode and burnt out the starter when it engaged at high speed.

I have a new battery and alternator and my car today won't start. I tried to jump it and it still wouldn't even turn over. Could it be a belt?


No if its not doing anything at all it could be a bad wiring harness or if ur lucky a bad ignition.

Ignition problem... No signal from ignition to solenoid...run a starter draw test to confirm starter is ok --- You can run your jump wires to a remote starter button or switch to get around it for now.

I hope this helps.

I'm thinking its the battery. Heat kills batteries. You said it wont jump start. That's a dead ringer for a bad battery. It may have enough juice to power some things, but wont run the starter, or the fuel pump, or the ignition(spark). Try a new battery and let me know!

It sounds like you have a solenoid issue on the starter... If it push starts fine then all your ignition circuits seem ok... If you feel good that there is not any damage when the keys turn the ignition.. I would lean toward correcting the starter problem.. Hope this helps..

It sounds like you probably have a shorted battery cell. This will not only cause the repeated clicking that you described, but it will also rob power when jump-starting from another vehicle. There is probably enough power when jump starting to turn the starter over, but after the starter take the power that it needs, there is not enough power to operate the computer system....so I have no doubt that you probably are not getting any fuel. The computer has to tell the fuel pump to run. If there is no power for the computer....I think you can figure it out from here.

Replace the battery and try it again.
