Replaced starter ,battery , and wiring for the batery , just clicks , all connections are tight .

If your starter is good, your battery is good, and all of the connections to your battery are good you may want to check your ignition switch. If your ignition switch is bad it will not allow power to your starter. I hope this helps.

I just changed my starter and now it won't start just get a click noise

your getting a click noise from your starter not having enough power to turn your enginge over test your battery to see if it is dead and if so charge or replace but if its not dead then you need to check your connections at your starter and make sure therre hooked up right and are tight especially your ground make sure it is hooked to a clean metal to metal surface and is tight the same for your power wire make sure it is clean and is tight, but def check your battery first the click usually means dead batery

My truck has been turning on and off when i go over bumps in the road, and now ive lost all power. my headlights and interior lights still work. is it my ignition switch? thank you

Hi, I would check the ground cable attached to the engine. If that's not it, check the power wire from the battery to the interior fuse box.

Had dead battery in 2002 honda civic got jump now word CODE in radio display

try disconecting the positive terminal of the batery for sevral minets (5-10) this will reset the brain box memory for the stero aswell as for the car it self.

what caused the batery to go dead in the first place?
things that i can think of :
1) left headlights on over night
2) bad altenator not charging batery
3) battery is old and not taking a charge anymore
4) new stero installed incorectly and drainging the batery
have you resently installed a new stero or amplifyer?
is the turn key igntion system hooked into the amp/stero antena lead so that thy are shut of when the ignition is?
of note: new streo >theres a blue wire marked ant that goes to the amplifyer if not there you need to find the orange accsesory wire coming from the turn key igntion>check for power when ignition is in the on & off states could be yellow in some cars but is usaly orange if this wire has on and of state controled by the turn key igntion this would be the wire to tap into for the amplyfire and the radio main power
check your radio's instaltion guide for code errors
its posible that when hooking up the jump it was done incorectly and blew up the radio
ie postive and negative where fliped
hope this helped :)

Tried jumpering a dead battery with a battery charger. the truck tried to start without me turning on the key. disconnected power, pulled the battery and charged. when the battery was charged and put back...

check that you do not have signal to s terminal on the starter, disconnect it and try hooking battery if starter turns there is an internal short in the starter,

Will not keep batery charged,i replaced alt,batery,belts are tight but gauge on dash reads in the red

There were a few different alternators used on those...I suggest you check the wiring to the unit and make sure you have power where it belongs. There may be a main fuse in the power distribution center near the battery...check that also.
Some have an external regulator. depending on the system, it is either a separate unit or is part of the computer. Be careful when testing that you don't arc to ground or it can cause more problems. make sure there is definite connection from the battery to the large wire on the alternator. Can't get more specific but something here should help.
