A car starter pulls 150 to 200 amps, the lights maybe 20 or 30 and will work at most voltages until its really dead, a starter will only click away on a dead battery get it jumped.

Hi I need help I have a 1999 Lincoln tow car and it was driving fine I cut it off and was just listening to music in my car and now it won't start back up I had it jump and still nothing but the lights...

Start with the battery.
Disconnect the cables and have your battery tested by an auto parts store or a car dealership.
Batteries can fail anytime, and without notice.
If it checks perfectly, then clean the posts sparkly clean and go to the terminals on the end of the wires.
Make sure these have no corrosion, and are shiny bright inside. Check the battery cables for corrosion inside the plastic cover where you cannot seek it.
Now go to the starter and/or the starter solenoid.
If all of the before mentioned are good, you should have a bad solenoid or starter.
God bless your efforts.

Well I'm going to list what I think it could be and what I would start with first. 1.listen to your fuel pump. Do this by having someone listen to your gas hose while car is turned from the off position to the "run" position without starting the car. Listen for duration and flow. Ask me if you have questions. 2.check your Thottle position

Won't start, lights work and radio also but will not turn over

If lights work, radio but not turn over. First of listen to see if it clicks when turning key, if that happens most likely it is the solenoid on the starter not triggering, if you hear nothing when turning the key, then the cable coming from the battery that goes down to the starter is loose, bad connection. Make sure that the cable from battery is tight, and clean. If Like I said you hear a click when trying to start car, then it is starter/solenoid issue. I hope this helps, if it does please rate my free advice accordingly> Thanks Mike. and check out my personal expert site....

2002 ford taurus won't start - brand new battery and complete tune up still won't start

Sounds like your not getting any fuel..Listen for the fuel pump,by removing gas cap and put your ear up to it..cycle the key without starting it and listen for the pump..sometimes you can beat on the bottom of the tank and it will jarr the pump and it will start running again..Not a fix but a conformation

Car will start but won't stay running

Is the Check Engine Light on/ If yes, go to AUtozne & get codes read and report them here.

Also, try cleaning the MAF sensor and throttle bdy with spray carb cleaner.

Check for 40 psi of fuel pump pressure. Can you hear pump hum for 5 seconds when key is turned to ON? Listen at tank at rea of car, pump is in the tank.

Check the connections at the battery,clean them where they shine,electrolite will form when you just have the radio on,and then there is no connection,or not enough for the starter to start the vehicle,corrosion will act as an insulator,and the starter needs more amps,and volts to start than lights ,or radio,check the battery also.
