My 2002 impala sometimes just wont start...wait a bit sometimes n it wrks fine...will start with of yesterday when i turn it over its dead but the power or ignition watever is goin on n off...

If you can get the car to start with a jump from another vehicle, then I'd drive it to the nearest place that can test the battery when you get the car started, or pull the battery and get it load tested. Likely your problems are with a bad cell within the battery and you just aren't getting the amps you need to start the car. It may read 12-14v, but can't put out the juice required to turn it over. The clicking is the lack of power..there's enough to cause relays to work, but just barely, which causes them to cycle on and off.

I believe the problem is a bad starter solenoid, mounted on your starter. The electrical contacts inside it may be pitted and a little burnt, causing it to sometimes connect and sometimes not. It's a common problem and can be aggravated or caused from your loose battery connections.
You have to pull the starter off and separate the starter motor and the solenoid, if you just want to replace the solenoid. Some resourceful guys say you can sand or emory cloth the contacts, and turn them a bit till a new, clean contact surface is available. If you're in a git-n-go mood, swap in a new or used starter with solenoid attached.

If you recently changed the battery make sure everything is connected the right way. After that it is most likely the fuel pump that needs replacing. It takes a while to start because it take it a while to get the fuel to the ignition.

Battery keeps going out on a 2005 ford focus wagon

have you replaced the battery? If not they do get bad cells, If you have? Do a voltage test on battery before you start it and after, Before should be 12.5 or close to tht, And running should be 14 or close to it, If not bad altenator, If both of those check out? Has the vehical got a stock stereo? Sometimes amps and subs kill a charging system, I`ll be waiting for your repost to continually try to help you. Good luck, Sam
