Question about Cars & Trucks
All clocks speedo rev etc go to max than bac to zero and a click but not start
The instruments draw only minimal power but the starter draws a whole lot. 100+ amperes.
The click you are hearing is the starter solenoid that only draws a few amperes, which even a very tired battery can supply briefly.
If you know the battery is not very old, it is probably a matter of corroded terminals.
These are located on the battery posts and can be flaky on the other ends of the cables connected to the battery,
You probably need a jump-start and have the battery check at any auto parts store.
If a jump-start doesn't get the engine to turn over, then it is a matter of the cables or a failed starter; the latter can also be checked at a parts store.
