Okay...not sure by the description....if you have noise while turning the key and it is clicking....bad starter. If you have NO power at all like a completely dead battery and you have to jump it, then the battery is either going dead or your alternator is not keeping the system charged. You can go to almost any parts dealer and they will test the battery, alternator, and starter for free.

Do you have any noises when you try to start it?

Usually a sign of something draining the battery.
The machine test probably showed the battery could hold a charge and the alternator was charging the battery.
You may need to have someone check for a power drain.
When the key switch is off, there may be a weak short to ground or a relay or component that is using power.

My 08 equinox wont start. It makes a click sound then nothing.

Try checking the starter.There is a purple wire going to the solenoid.When you turn the key on to start you have to have battery voltage at this wire.You can try tapping it with a hammer and sometimes they will start.You have to hit the big body part of the starter not the solenoid.Check your warranty.If you have under 36k miles it is covered under the factory warranty which is 3 yrs.and 36k miles.Hope this helps.Good luck.

My equinox will not start should i try and jump start it

It wont hurt to try and jump start it unless you cross the cables. If it starts drive it to a parts store and have the check the battery for you. If it dies when you pull the cables off then your alternator is probably bad
