Sounds like a starter problem, gently tap the starter while someone cranks the car.

When I went I turned the key there was a bzzzzt sound no starter, or solenoid click


Sounds like the battery is dead or dying. Most batteries reach their EOL (End of Life) between 3-5 years. One very quick way to check the battery is to first turn on your headlights - then try to start the engine. If the lights go out = the battery is dead. If the lights only dim a bit = the battery is low (and may be near EOL). If the Lights stay bright and the Engine/starter engages = Normal/Battery is Good. 2nd best way is that if the car starts normally when jump-starting, then look at the battery/charging system. If the Battery is less than 3 years old and not charging properly, there could be multiple causes for this: Low acid level in battery, Bad or Corroded battery connection, Low Alternator output, Frayed/corroded battery cable etc. A Simple Check for the Alternator is once the car is running - (If you Jump-started then Remove the Jumper-Cables) - If the engine continues to run, then disconnect the Ground Cable from the Battery (Black or (-) side) - If the engine continues to run = Alternator is Good/working.
Caution: If you discover a dry cell in the battery do not fill with water - get to a parts store and buy some electrolite (Sulfuric Acid) RE: water may freeze and burst the battery wall. Good Luck.

1993 nissan pick up won't start


Possibly a bad connection on the positive side coming from the battery or a weak ground. Check where the leads join the terminal clamps. Has the battery been verified as good? It doesn't take a lot of amps to run lights but it does to turn over the engine. Jump starting it does not require a fully charged battery.

Car needs to be jumped or will not start


Car starts fine with a jump? You sure your battery is good? If the battery is good then you must have a connection bad right at the battery. If you jump it and it starts then the starter is ok. If you jump it and it stays running with lights on, heater fan on, etc. then the alternator is probably ok. The alternator won't keep the car from starting, but it might not let it start the next time if it is not recharging the battery. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

Car wouldn't start. Thought it was a battery. Got a jump and went to mechanic. Mechanic said battery was fine but terminals very gunked up. Cleaned terminals and sent us on our way. Car...


did they run a test on the alternator!! at battery when off should be at least 12.6 volts, less than 12 volts battery is bad. when running at battery voltage should be at least 14.1 to 14.7, thats if alternator is ok. if less than above replace alternator. if alt. is ok, could be a bad battery.

Audi A6 2006 problem with battery


Yes
First thing is to test the battery and this is how Turn on head lights, if dull leave on to see how long the stay on for. Next turn lights off put battery on charge for 6 hrs .Turn on lights again if still dull either battery or charger no good
If lights bright try to start and when starter trys to turn engine over the lights go dim THEN battery is no good.
Then get a jump start from another battery and put pos term on both batterys first, then earth lead(BLACK) on last then start if starts ok remove the BLACK lead and turn on head lights if goes bright ALTERNATORs ok so replace battery ....

Have you had your alternator checked? If batt. and alt. check out ok, then I would check to see if it is getting fire when it won't start and have the fuel pressure checked.

Battery not charging


Sounds like the cells in the battery have shorted. It's probably shot. Does the car run once its jump started? Does it continue to run after the cables are removed, if so your alternator is ok and its the battery. Hope that helps.

If the battery is new.

If you jump start it but then it will not start after being run then the alternator could be your problem. Alternatively the ECU could be another problem.
