Could be one of two things.

1. Your starter motor is no good.
2. If you turn on your lights and try to start the car and they dim to almost black, then you need to check the battery connections.

SOURCE: 05 ford escape wont start. jump started it and it

okay try this....talk to your parts store and get a battery load tester, and find out if the battery is indeed dead. My guess is it sounds like the Altenator is dying. they are around 50-100 and can be install by a pro in minutes.

It sounds like you have an issue with your PassLock security system. I had the same with my 2002 Impala. Key turns OK, but won't start, won't crank. Wait 20-30 minutes, and car starts normally. There is usually a clue from the Battery and Security lights.
The problem starting to happen once a month, and eventually 1-2 times a week.
There are several write-ups on this problem for several GM cars for 2000-2006(?). Search this website, and search the web.
The official solution is to replace the ignition switch. The best solution is to bypass the Pass Lock system. I went ahead and did a full bypass, which involves cutting wires and adding resistors to the ignition circuit. I have not had a problem since.

Where do I plug in the cord to start charging the jump starter (Black & amp; Sage ) 900 peak ,350


Google for an owner's manual. I can't find anything on this jump starter, but first they need to be charged, usually by plugging into a wall socket for 12-24 hours. Then plug into the cigarette lighter for 10 min or so to give the car battery a boost charge.

Dodge ram starter clicks


Your battery is dead and alternator may not be charging. Try a jump start. If it starts, check voltage with engine running. If voltage is less than 13, remove the alternator and have it tested.

I went to start my 2005 PT Cruiser and got a loud clicking sound and it won't turn over. Is it the starter?


probably not sounds like either a dead or weak battery or bad connections on the battery posts. first take battery cables loose clean terminals and hook back up hopefully then it will start. or use jumper cables and see if it will jump start. if it jump starts then you no its not starter.if it doesnt jump stsrt then clean posts and cable ends and try again. hope this helps. best of luck

possibly your alternator. if you have a multimeter set it to volts dc and, without the car running, set the probes on the battery. then start the car and repeat the process. the multimeter reading should jump if the alternators good. you will need to charge the battery beforehand it sounds like, do not jump it. if all else fails disconnect a jumper lead befor starting to ensure nothing electrical gets damaged.

The loud click is probably the solenoid but it's possible it is not transferring power from the incoming (battery) line to the output (starter) line. Can you attach a test light on starter and have someone try "start" ? Light should come on, bad starter. If light does not come on then you are looking for that problem.

95 F250 not starting


You said you tightened the battery cables, did you check the other end of the negative where it bolts to the engine. When you tightened the cables you also used a battery brush and cleaned the posts and ends?

Wife went to store and she calls me telling me truck wont start its just clicking so i go over and it or i thought it was a bad connection negative was loose i tightened it up and after a jump it started...


probably the starter is going bad. it hits a worn spot on the inside so it can't engage to turn over but most of the time it is not at the warn spot so it engages fine. make sure the ground is tight and not corroded and the battery post and clamps are not dirty, sometimes a bad ground connection or corroded batt. posts can cause intermittent failure. if it fails again, try the old fashion test by crawling under and tapping the starter itself with a hammer or similarobject. it usually will start and if it does, the starter is going bad.

Battery voltage tests fine but 06 corolla will not start


Voltage doesn't start cars ..Amperage does. Try to jump start and if it still clicks then your starter is suspect.

It is your battery it may not be completly dead but it is too dead to run the starter. It take 300 -600 amp to run a starter and 20 amp to run a stereo
