2003 nissian aliima car won't turn over and do I have a timing belt or chain all you hear is clicking when turning over

Dont understand your reference to 'timing chain/belt'.

However..sounds like you either don't have enough current capacity in your battery to get the starter going, or your starter (there's a solenoid that is integrated into it) is failing.

If you have someone or "triple A" provide you with a boost/jump to your battery (allow 5 mins at least before trying to start) or if you have a battery charger (charge over night), if this works then you need to either replace the battery, or if a new battery already, your alternator is not charging, or you're drawing too much from the battery when driving (like a massive boom box stereo), or leaving lights/something on.

If the above doesn't work and.....If you are up to trying this and you must do it safely, meaning don't get yourself in a situation where you can hurt yourself or cause more damage. You can try to kick your starter in the '13UTT'

If you locate your starter, you can tap it with a small hammer. (google where it's located for your make and model), doesn't matter where you tap it. If it starts, then you know you need to have it replaced asap.

My 2001 hand jeep Cherokee won't turn over what do

If all fuses are ok and the battery is full of charge and connections are tight it could be a faulty starter. If it just clicks once try tapping with a hammer (hold the hammer head and jab at the starter with the hammer shaft). If it clicks several times carefully short across the starter solenoid with a screwdriver to see if it tries to turn the engine over.

2003 trailblazer has new battery, but will not crank but all dash lights come on

Check the starter, check the cable that goes from the battery to the starter. make sure its tight and not loose. take a hammer and tap on the starter. If the vehicle still doesn't start. Change the starter.

2005 honda civic replaced starter .it started right up for a couple of days now just cranks and won't start?

Tapping the starter is just a test,then you replace it as you did

So the starter issue is resolved

No check to see if you have fuel pressure at the motor
when you cycle the key

Also check for spark or injector pulse when cranking

If you have a relay for starter switch it with a similar one

Is the starter located on the battery side of the motor?

You can tap on it, but still have to remove the starter,
if that works, as it would be worn out

You can follow the positive battery cable to all starters

Car is clicking but wont start

if the starter is clicking then with someone trying to start it tap the starter with a hammer and it will probably start.your problem sounds like the starter needs replacing.first check to make sure battery voltage is around 12.6 volts as this is a fully charged battery.if the battery is below 11.0 volts then you could have either a charging problem or the battery is no good and needs replacing.

Car died. tried to restart and it only whined. replaced starter, charged battery, and now it will only make a clicking noise.

Check the battery cables for tightness and corrosion, check battery charge, tap on starter with a hammer while someone holds the ignition in the crank position. You will still have the dying issue to deal with.
