If the battery is good , then you need a new starter.

Something in the window system is broken either in the up down mechanism or the clips. Remove inner door panel and you will see what's broken

Check for a weak solenoid (spelling) on top of starter. Magnet too weak to throw out the bendix.

BATTERY COULD BE WEAK.CHECK BATTERY VOLTAGE SHOULD BE 12.6 VOLTS. REPLACE BATTERY CABLES 14 YEARS OLD. IF BATTERY CABLES OKAY.REMOVE STARTER HAVE STARTER AND SOLENOID TESTED AT ANY AUTO PARTS STORE FREE.BE SURE TO TURN OFF RADIO BEFORE REMOVING NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE.DOING THIS KEEP YOU FROM LOSING RADIO CODE.

My car doesn't start. When I turn the key to start the car it makes a clicking noise and the lights in the car start flashing. I thought is was the battery but when I got a jump charge the engine still...


It sounds like the battery is bad, beacuse it wont even start with a jump. If possible take the battery off and take it to your local autoparts or even walmart car service, they will test the voltage on battery for free, from the description you are giving about the clicking sound pretty sure the battery is gone. good Luck.

Car wont start until i give it a jump i put new battery and had alternator checked its good. when i try to start it all it does is make clicking noise


Sounds like an intermittent Earth connection. Check all the battery and earth leads where they connect to the Battery, Engine, Starter Motor and Body. If possible disconnect, clean and reconnect.

Car needs a jump to start but the lights and all


You probably need a new battery, have alternator and battery checked.

1998 bmw 740il will not start even with new a battery


If you checked all the fuses try putting the car in neutral sometimes the shifter gets misadjusted and wont start till the car is completely in park.If not check for a lose wire to the starter.If the car has an after market alarm you will have to turn it off before starting there should be a little buuton under the drivers dash or kick panel.GOOD LUCK
