    check your battery to ensure it holds a charge, your terminal cables for cracks or corrosion and your alternator and voltage regulator for proper output function. If a jump from another vehicle will start your car then one of those modules / components I've mentioned are faulty on your vehicle.

2004 chevy trailblazer wont start

The code is throttle position sensor error,could be bad or just need reset.The other problem sounds like a bad ground,if you have a piece of wire close to the terminal wire size put it on the ground side and jump it to the block,or any metal surface while someone tries to start it,if that doesn't get it try smacking the starter with a screw driver nothing bigger than a ratchet to prevent damage also while someone else rolls it over,also instead of rolling it over all the way try just quick burst with the key let engine turn maybe once or twice and do this as quick as possible maybe five or ten times

Yah sure check the fuel pressure on the manifold, ur belt tension and altenator. But a very common problem with jeeps is the crankshaft positioning sensor. Check and make sure ur gettin fire. If ur not could also b the ignition control module in the distribitor.

Car wont start got a boost still wont start clicking sounds while tring to start is it the battery or altrnator

It most likely sounds like a starter. If the batt is good and it won't start with a jump than I would think its the starter. If it is easy to reach the starter you can try to hit the starter with a hammer while someone else is turning the key. Be safe and ensure there is no chance that the car will move when trying this.

Have you checked the injector wiring? Each has only 2 wires you can check. If no power, test the injector power control module.

Car has power, lights all work. tried to jump car, but wont work. any suggestions?

Well lets start by trying to tap on the started while someone else tries to start vehicle.
Next vehicle needs full voltage to start, everything else will work on low voltage.
Try putting transmission in neutral and start it.
Hope that helps

Car wont start, lights and radio turn on, not able to drive

turn on headlites and windshield wipers do they work? if they do then the battery is not the problem,,unless you been trying to start it a lot and drained down the battery..get a jump from someone AAA. if the car makes a clicking noise when you try and start it then the battery is drained . if you get a jump and it still wont start then the starter is bad... rap on the solenoid on top of the starter, with a piece of wood, while someone tries to start it, and usually i"ll start one time for you, don't shut it off or you'll be stranded again.
