You probably put the leads in the wrong way
anyway you can start a car even without a battery or if you need you can use someone elses battery and by leaving the engine on you can remove the battery by being very careful ( electric discharge)
remove one lead at the time the red first and make sure it does not touch any metal parts in the car
if ther has been snoke it also would indicate an alternator fault and in this case the battery will not charge
a belt if headcam is there could alos be lose and will not charge battery and alternator
if you have a charger recharge the battery overnight and try
if not start again it also could be starter motor
if manual try push it
another problem could also be the mai switch board ( centralina) Fuse box , the brain of the car
ther may be one or more of these

Dead battery, used jumpers. Lights work dashboard lights up. Motor will not turn over


If the battery is very dead, it can take a while for the dead battery to regain enough charge to start. If you are jump starting from a jump box and not a running vehicle, there may not be enough power available to get the charge to a level that can start the vehicle. Hook up the jumpers cable to a running vehicle and allow 10-20 minutes for the battery to gain some charge. Monitor both batteries carefully during this time and should any unusual amount of heat or if smoke starts to come from either battery, shut everything down and disconnect as quickly (and safely) as possible.

I tried to start my sequoia while being jumped all it did was continuously click what is that a sign of


It can be either a very dead battery, since a very dead battery can cause even the best jump start to load down to where you won't get enough starting current, or a bad starter. Check the cells of the battery for water. If there are any empty or dry cells, fill them. When you hook up to the jump vehicle, let that vehicle run and charge your battery for 5-10 minutes and try again. IF there is improvement, it is probably the battery. If not, I would suspect the starter.

Why won't it start?


Hi,
It sounds like your battery doesn't have enough of power to start your vehicle up. It will click like that when the battery power is extremely low. I would suggest taking the battery to be tested first before buying a new battery. Many times when you try jumping it off of another vehicle and the battery is extremely low, it wont put enough of power out from the other vehicle to start it up with. You can also try letting the car stay on to charge the other battery up for around an hour and see if it may turn the car on then. If that doesn't help. then your battery may have bad cells in it and may need replaced. Hope that helps ya.

Subaru outback 2005 , replaced battery, radio and aircon not working no lights or power


When you turn the key you get nothing at all?
perhaps you put the cables on the wrong way and shorted something out?
or maybe the wires arent tight enough on the battery?
did you try hooking up booster cables? often when you buy a new battery it comes uncharged and needs to be charged properly on a good trickle charger.

hopefully you didnt hook the battery up backwards and short out the ECM...

Saturn jumper cables hooked up backwards


Try charging the battery more. Even though your lights may come one, starting a vehicle requires massive amounts of amperage from the batter. It's possible that your jumper cables aren't a thick enough guage to supply enough power as well. Sometimes the vehicle you're jumping from might not have enough power to support your vehicle's starting power requirements.

Sounds like you have a toasted battery or alternator. Have you performed a load test on the battery? Have you tried to charge the battery? First remove the battery and charge it externally from the vehicle. If the battery won't hold a charge, or won't hold a charge of 12 volts, replace it. Once you have the vehicle started, test the operation of the alternator. It should be putting out at least 13 volts back to the battery to keep it charged - if it is putting less than 13 volts or more than 16 volts, replace the alternator.

The problem sounds like it was the battery the whole time. Your battery can have all the volts in the world but if it does not produce enough amperage it will not turn the starter over. This sounds like a dead cell issue. To be sure, Disconnect the Negative battery terminal and connect the vehicle for jumping but put the ground cable someplace on the block. Start the vehicle and disconnect the jumper cables. If the vehicle continues running the Alternator is doing it's job and you need to replace your battery. Another way to check for a dead cell in the battery is to get a cell tester from Walmart or an auto parts store and test each cell. Also you could take the battery to the Auto Parts store and ask them to test it. They will test for charge and Load capacity.

Check the battery +12v power connection to the starter is in good order,
Check the ground connection between the battery negative and the engine/starter motor is robust and intact.
If no problem with above, replace the starter motor.

Sounds like the starter. You can try several things but the main idea is to start it to be able to bring it to a mechanic. Disconnect the battery and push on the brake pedal. This will drain the power from the vehicle. Reconnect the battery and try to start the car. The theory behind this is the starter solenoid could be stuck energized. You can also locate the starter slightly tap on the starter and then try to start the vehicle. Also if the vehicle has sacked for some time before you purchased it the battery may not have the cranking amps necessary to start the vehicle. The electrical gizmos will work but it will not be enough to crank the engine. Check the battery is fully charged and possibly try to hook up jumper cables to another vehicle or a jump start Appliance.
