    Your battery is weak. Charge up, or replace the battery and then have the alternator check. Also your battery may be bad.

Pull out the battery and bring it to a parts store for a free check of it's condition. The store can tell you if it's just in need of a charge, or if the battery is bad. If this doesn't help fix the problem, let me know, I'll try to help further.

    Should have mentioned to check the connection at the battery. Make sure the cables and battery posts are clean and tight. Loose connections or corrosion could be causing the problem.

Car won't start. New battery installed recently. Only clicks when trying to start.


one single click any time you turn the key usually indicates a bad solenoid on the starter. A new starter will typical get you going.

A series of rapid clicks when you try to start usually indicates a weak battery. There could also be a bad connection at the terminals on the battery or even a poor connection at the starter.

If you get a single click and everything goes dead for a couple of seconds than you definitely have a bad connection at the battery.

Let me know what you find or if you have any questions.

Clicking sound when trying to start and no start (sometimes). I think it sounds like the starter is clicking. it is a lot like when the battery is going dead and does not supply enough power to engage...


Everything you are describing leads me to believe the battery is the culprit.Not enough storage in it after it sets,when it does start the alternator has to work at max to recover from the start making it idle rough,and the fact that it starts good warm tells me that you definitely need a battery.You can confirm this by boosting the truck the next time it starts "just clicking",if it goes with a boost then you will know for sure that the battery is done in.

The gauges in my chevy tahoe are not working ... fuel, mph, rpm, oil, etc... none of them are working at all. What could be the problem?


CARS AND TRUCKS HAVE SENDING UNITS AND SWITCHES SCREWED INTO AND MOUNTED ALL OVER THEM, IF THE WHOLE CONSOLE GOES DEAD ITS A BURNT FUSE OR THE PIGTAIL THAT PLUGS INTO BACK OF THE DISPLAY HAS COME LOOSE, CHECK FUSE HOLDER THEN IF ITS NOT A FUSE YOU MAY HAVE TO TAKE DASH APART TO CHECK PIGTAIL ON CONSOLE.

I have a 2001 chevy tahoe wont start


could be as simple as a dirty fuel filter. or maybe the fuel pump has died..i will go with the fuel filter since you were able to get it started again.. also when replacing your fuel filter you should go ahead and get new plugs and wires.. a small tune up wouldnt hurt and would only set you back 100.00 dollers maybe.. hope this helps

I would try to test the ground the motor first, also you can duplicate the ground with no consequence. If the motor is real dirty/ dusty, you may be able to clean it and ck the brushes in it while you are there.
