Car won't start now; just clicks repeatedly when trying to start without turning over at all. Lights still work although last time it was driven the radio started going on and off along with the AC and the ABS lights and airbag lights??? Could it be the alternator? Thought the battery was fairly new.

My car won't turn on it was working fine last


Just because you charged the battery it doesn't mean it is any good. Modern sealed batteries fail; just as you described, fine one moment and then nothing, they go open internally.

Car died while driving!can only jump start.dim lights ect


If all your connections are clean and sound, then your car should be able to run without a battery. Start the car and disconnect the negative terminal. If it stops your alternator is faulty. This would explain dim lights that are draining the life out of the battery instead of being alternator driven. Same as the dieing while driving, the battery can't keep supplying power forever without being recharged by the alternator.

If the alternator is ok, the battery needs replacing. Repeated draining of batteries kills them.

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.

Car will not start after not driven for 8 days.battery disconnect


I assume you mean 75,000, not 750,000. But what does it do when you try to start? Does the starter solenoid click? Have you tried it in neutral as well as park? Is it a stick and have you depressed the clutch all the way? When you try to start it, do the lights go out? Do they return immediately? Have you cleaned and greased the battery terminals? When a battery is left for weeks at a time, typically one purchases a "float charger", which only maintains a slight trickle charge. This will not hurt the battery or dry it out, and it will last much longer. You can get one at Harbor Freight for $10.

Intermittently have to use charger to start.


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..
