SOURCE: Will not start

Make sure the battery connections are clean and free of corrosion. You should have the battery "Load Tested". Stores like Auto Zone, Advance Auto Parts, and Pep Boys will do a "Load Test" for free. If the battery fails the "Load Test" change it. Also confirm an operational charging system (alternator and voltage regulator).

SOURCE: Lights started flickering battery light came on Dash lights and gages went crazy now wont start

Like you said, battery may be flat. You can check that with a multimeter.

Next check the alternator. Faulty alternator leads to uncharged battery.

SOURCE: How to reprogram the car starter after changing

Never heard of reprograming a car starter.
Need to know the symton of what is happening??
Like--- when you turn the key in postion when the gauges and warning lights come on--ignition on-- do they light up? Or no?If no --check the battery connections again --some wire did not get hooked up or broke.
Or when you turn the key all the way to start up the engine ---nothing happens??No, again check battery conections.
Or you may have shorted something out when disconnecting / installing the battery and thus blew one of the main fuses.
I do not know where they are offhand but if you have a owners manual it should tell you where they are.
Good Luck..

I just changed my starter and now it won't start just get a click noise

your getting a click noise from your starter not having enough power to turn your enginge over test your battery to see if it is dead and if so charge or replace but if its not dead then you need to check your connections at your starter and make sure therre hooked up right and are tight especially your ground make sure it is hooked to a clean metal to metal surface and is tight the same for your power wire make sure it is clean and is tight, but def check your battery first the click usually means dead batery

I have a 2004 Dodge Grand caravan that won't start. (60,000 miles) I hear a clicking noise and my gauges go "crazy" when I turn the key. (Speedometer goes from 0-120 and back to zero when I turn...

Sounds like a classic case of a dead battery. It takes much less energy to sweep the gauges and turn on the lights than it does to crank the engine over. The clicking noise is usually your starter solenoid trying to engage and spin the starter. Try a new battery. Happy motoring.

Good luck.

What is causing the clicking noise when i try 2 start my car

If all you hear is a clicking noise when attempting to start your car it could be caused from a weak battery (from a battery failure or because the alternator failed to charge the battery) or a faulty starter.

Will not start

The clicking noise is usually the sign of a dead battery. No gauges or noise could mean a REALLY dead battery. Check battery connections to make sure they are clean and tight. Have u tried to jump start it? U can take the battery to a parts store where most will check it's condition for free. So check this 1st and let me know what u find. If that's not it, we can continue.
