I had these problems on my 2005 911 when the battery died. Apparently when it goes IT GOES. I had no problem with the battery until this time and then suddenly it was dead.

I've heard since that this is common on Porsche 996 when the battery is dead and then is should also be the case with the 986 Boxter.

I removed the old battery and left the car without a battery for at least 30 minutes (while doing some other maintainance). Put a new battery in and no problems after that. On most cars if you disconnect the battery for like 15 minutes the maintainance computer resets its self and all warninglights should dissapear unless there is a real fault, then the appropriate light should come back on!

Good luck.

1994 jeep grand cherokee wont start

The clicking sound is an indication that the battery is almost dead, and will not activate the starter any more.
When is the last time the vehicle was tuned up and serviced? How many miles do you have on it? You can't drive it forever and expect that it's going to always start and run properly. You need to have it checked out by a qualified mechanic - the symptoms you have sketched out here could be almost anything.
Do yourself a favor and invest a few dollars to get some reliability back in your vehicle, or maybe find out that it's going to cost a lot of money to keep it going. Then you can make an informed decision on what to do next.

Car wont start. lights stereo work. engine makes clicking sound and int lights blink along with clicking. whats this?

sounds like a bad battery. have you tried to jump it? if it starts, go to a chain auto store like pepboys or auto zone they will check it for free. it might also be the starter. if you can access the starter, have someone tap on it with a broom stick or something similar while you try to start it. the starter is located on the rear part of the engine where the trans meets the engine. a cylindrical device with red colored, large wires connected to the back of it.

1995 toyota tercel made a clacking sound and stalled

SORRY but I need a lot more information than what you have given me.
Where did the clanking come from under the car /from the engine/from gear box/back or front wheels/etc, and what is it doing now when wont start and just clicks ,,do the dash lights go out ,,
Turn on head lights and then turn the key to start (do the lights go outand clicking still there)
If so it sounds like the problem is in the converter
So let me know ASAP Ron

2006 Dodge Caravan Engine Light Blinks 10 Times & wont start

It sounds like your starter needs cleaned or replaced. The poping noise could be the actuator not engaging right. As for the engine light, it could be just a coincidence.

Wont start

is the earth cable giving a good engine and body contact.does your starter have two terminals and if so are they the right way around?is the battery any good?Is the engine able to be turned over by hand Make sure you have agood 12v supply to the starter solenoid when cranking the engine An engine test probe/light would be of a lot of use for you to do that test
