It also might be possible you have a bad connection. if you have a test light and a buddy willing to help, hook one side of the test light the starter wire(the big one) and the other side to ground. if it lights up and stays on as long as the ignition is turned to the start position then your starter is bad, if no light then its a bad connection, a bad starter relay, or a bad ignition switch. as for a bad connection it could be the battery cables.

Although the battery says it's putting out enough juice maybe on a volt meter, it may have a dead cell. Try taking the cap off and put water in it if it needs it. That can bring some life out of a battery with a dead cell. If not that its time for a new battery. Check the alternator too.

It sounds like your starter might have just took a ****

97 Nissan Altima won't Start. It only clicks once when you turn the key. It has a manual transmission and won't even push start. Any idea's?


One click and no start? Sounds like a starter issue. Make sure that your battery is fully charged before you do anything. If it is charged, make sure all of your battery cables are clean and tight all the way down to the starter. You can also have you battery and starter tested at almost any auto parts store. The transmission is a totally different issue.

Chrysler 300 2006 started and died 4 times and now won't do anything. Not even a click. Have battery power to everything else


Try boosting it. If it starts and keeps running with a boost, but dies soon after you remove the boost, the battery is bad.

I believe i have a weak battery on my car when i tried starting the car after it had sat a month it was dead. I boosted it and it started and run fine. I bought a trickle charger and put it on the battery....


The charger shouldn't have hurt the battery but corrosion is caused by fumes from the battery being charged or used. If you know the cable ends are clear, the battery probably has a dead cell and will need replaced. Most parts stores will do a load test on the battery for free.

Car wont start...clicking noise


well running the voltage from alternator should be at least 14 volts or a bit higher, engine off it should read at least 13 volts at battery. if alternater is less then 14 volts, it is the alternator at fault. or a loose alt, belt.

Car died on the freeway and cant get it to start again. Its been a couple of days when I stick the key in it makes a clicking sound and now my lights wont even turn on


You first have to make sure the alternator has not failed. Try to fully charge the battery and see if the truck will start. If it starts, remove the battery cables making sure they don't touch the vehicle. If the truck shuts off, the alternator has failed. If it remains running, turn on the head lights along with other accessories. If it shuts off, the alternator still may be weak and needs replacing. Lastly, have the battery load tested to ensure that it still holds a proper charge.

Have a 1996 Taurus wagon--dead battery--got brand new battery and connected it properly and car barely turns over and wont turn enough to start--car was sitting for about three months


Was the battery checked before it was sold to you? Batteries will lose their charge over a period of time even when not hooked up. If you have a voltmeter it should read 12.8 volts on a fully charged battery.
Have you tried to boost the car with cables?
I suspect if the car was working OK 3 months ago it should start. Which leads me to suggest an undercharged battery.

Car wont start


Fully charge battery remove and take to a shop, bench test the battery. If its not the battery remove the starter and bench test it, its either the battery or the starter.

Dead battery even after 12 hours of charging?


Sounds like battery is fine, or at least o.k. , but there is a problem with the starting system. If you put headlights on, then have someone try to start it while you watch headlights, and they don't dim way down, then battery if o.k. for now. Do you know what killed the battery originally, was it just from sitting for a while & not being used? Listen & locate the clicking noise if you can, it sounds like relay or solenoid. You can try a boost & see if that may help. If it's automatic, move shifter through all gears, then try. If standard, make sure clutch in all the way . Let me know what happens.
