The battery is dead or not connected tight enough. Bring the battery to an auto parts store, and have it tested, it sounds like it's dead or VERY weak, that's what those signs and symptoms are telling me.

Two days ago I noticed my battery was flat as I left the lights on. I recharged it last night and put it back in again today. I then pressed the lock button on my keyfob 5 times so that the key is...


That clicking is the starter trying to engage. Try jumpstarting the vehicle. Your battery may not have come back yet.... and you may need a new one. Try letting it run for a half hour or so after jumpstarting. If it starts immediately after shutting it off you're probably good to go. If it requires another jumpstart then you need a new battery.

My 06 sedona wont start just a clicking noise, radio and lights work. Just got a new battery for it and nothing changed. Is there a fuse/relay problem or probably the starter?


Try jumpstarting it. My 06 has done that a few times and jumpstarting has worked every time. Usually, one of the kids left a dome light on or something.

Won't turn over - rapid clicks - panel lights flicker


Check the battery condition - it may be flat,
check battery terminal posts are clean and connection cables are not loose or corroded.

Engine won't start. Dash lights flash rapidly when key turned.


the battery says 12 volts but may be dropping to 4 or 5 under a load...i would suggest jumpstarting the car and see what happens.the battery should read in the high 12 volts and not less than 9.5 under cranking. the dash lights go out on your car when starting,and the alarm will go off ,and disable the ignition if the voltage is too low in cranking the car because the computer will shut it down and activate the anti theft.....check your battery posts are tight. best of luck

NO START


This problem can be three things. The ignition switch is a good place to start but its under a recall and you should not spend any money on this repair. The passlock system next to ignition switch should probably be changed at the same time and is also under a recall. The instrument cluster is the most probable in your case. The reason i say that is because the key is the headlights not turning on you may also have some lights on the instrument cluster flickering on and off at weird times.The speedometer or other gauges are probably not working all the time. if you are handy you can remove the cluster and send it out for repair. The tech who repairs this might even tell you that the instrument cluster has nothing to do with non start issue but it does. the passlock anti theft reads the ignition key when you insert it into ignition cylinder. Once you turn the key the ignition sends a signal through the instrument cluster to the pcm. the pcm will allow the car to start if the correct signal is recieved. If the pcm recieves no signal it allows the car to start for a second and then kills the car.
