I went to start my 2005 PT Cruiser and got a loud clicking sound and it won't turn over. Is it the starter?

probably not sounds like either a dead or weak battery or bad connections on the battery posts. first take battery cables loose clean terminals and hook back up hopefully then it will start. or use jumper cables and see if it will jump start. if it jump starts then you no its not starter.if it doesnt jump stsrt then clean posts and cable ends and try again. hope this helps. best of luck

I have a 2006 pt cruiser sometimes it has a hard start and can / doesn't want to start and other times it will go for weeks without any problems i had a mechanic look at it and he said he thought it...

Look at your battery terminals and see if there is corrosion. I had the same problem with my 06 pt. It turned out that the positive cable going to the starter was corroded internally. was replaced and now no more hard starting.

Seems like a short when I hook up neg. batt. cable.

Starter power wire could be grounding out causing it to lock the starter in even if the engine is running, as well as making the cable arc at the battery. I would first trace the wire from the battery to the starter and make sure it isn't grounding somewhere. If it isn't it could be the starter going bad internally. My guess would be the wiring, especially where it bolts to the starter.
