Make sure you have the car properly in Park with lights off and try. If there's no clicking you either have a very loose terminal on the battery or the battery is no where near charged up enough. Try to jump start with someone wiggling the wires for the jumper cables. Once it starts clicking, leave the wires alone and let the battery accept a charge about 10 minutes while the other car is hooked up and then try again.

I have a 1995 geo metro notice my dlr lights not working and the car wont star it wont even click or turn the motor all the fuses are fine and when turn the switch to on position engine light come on


head lights must come on, or the battery is dead.!!!
the head lights work key off. so that is first check, and first to fix.

when this happens you have a dead battery, (fuses good, and tested all fuse,in engine bay.
  1. the classic, jump start using jumper cables .
  2. charge the battery so it reads 12.6vdc rested
  3. try a known good battery in car, that works in another car.

easy, right?

New battery In mercedes no power


I'm not a car mechanic, but, it sounds like you might want to check the fuse to the ignition switch, and, if that fails, it might be a problem with the Start Safety Switch on the transmission. Good luck.

Battery wont charge but has power, lights come on but it wont turn over


My first guess would be a bad connection at one of the battery posts, or a dead cell inside the battery.

Infiniti G35 wont open


You can not jump a dead battery

That is also an unsafe practice

Have to disconnect any battery that is
dead & try to charge it first or replace,
if it is over 4 to 5 years old & died

My Honda Accord wont start even with a jump. The lights come on but wont turn over. No click, no sound, no nothing


IT's those short drives that burn down a battery! The starting of an engine requires mucho electric to get it running. The alternator then charges the battery, but slowly! If you also have the lights and stereo on it is even slower. Get the battery FULLY charged with a commercial battery charger. Then check to see if the alternator is charging up the battery after you start it. If not, replace the alternator. If the battery dies overnight or in a few days...replace the battery.

2004 Ford Explore won't turn over


whilst you are trying to jump start it check if you jump leads are good and powerful enough to sent the power to your battery,check if your battery terminals are clean enough to accept the power given,or is your battery not completely dead and even you are boosting has not the power to increase the needing one to start and is just for lights only?

I see on here where u have answered questions about ppl trying to start their durango and just get a clocking noise. Ok so here goes....my car for a while because my battery was almost dead and then dies...


If you have a new battery and it keeps going dead, then either you have a bad battery or the alternator is not charging properly. Altenator not charging could be either a bad alternator, loose belt, or bad wiring coming from alternator.
