It would appear that you have a low battery. You may need a jump start to get going. I would have the battery replaced and make sure your charging is working. When you get it jump started and it is running, check for a red battery light on your dash. If you don't see one, your charging system is OK and you just have a tired battery that needs to be replaced. You can also go through your display choices to the vehicle voltage reading. Make sure you have atlease 13.8 volts.

Hope this helps.

Have 1990 audi 100,car won't turn over,have 12 volts,makes a click sound under back seat when I turn key

Sounds like a dead battery. Do the lights come on and radio work? Maybe the lights are dimmer than normal or the door is no longer dinging when opened. Also another way to tell when the battery is not getting any juice to the car.
You may be able to get the car started using jumper cables. I would take it to a parts store immediately and have them check it (almost always free).

One easy thing (which is free and a maintenance item) is to clean the battery terminals and cable terminals. These can get very corroded and actually cause the battery to stop charging when the car is running. They may just need a good cleaning and a jump. It might take care of it!

Probably not the starter, but also an outside chance (full disclosure).

Good luck!

Its possible you got water in a wiring harness under the carpet or under one of the seats.
You would need to trace the wiring from the key to the starter to see what is not working. Could be the neutral safety switch on the trans but that would not have anything to do with wet carpets.

Car won't start has new starter, alternator, and battery when you turn key all you get is a ticking sound

Hello! Check the engine compartment junction block (driers side)...Your vehicle is noted for this problem...Disconnect the (+) battery terminal; Make sure you have the radio code....Visually inspect the block for loose connections...Remove the block from the chassis and look underneath the block for poor connections...Follow the negative (small)l battery lead...It heads to a bolt through the inner fender...Many Sonata's are coming from the factory with that ground bolted to a painted surface...Remove, wire brush to bare metal and re connect...This is a common problem and should solve your starting problem...If this not the fault send a comment...Guru...Saailer
