Car wont start but lights work

Please provide with more detail. Does it make a click sound when turning the ignition? Does it crank?
Have you tried to jump the battery with jumping cable or tried it on a know good batteries?
- If the car does make a cranking noised then the starter is good but weak battery.
- If there is no noise or clicking, then dead battery.
- If you can hear the clicking when turning the key to start, then check for battery GROUND.
- If battery were tested and it read 12.5 - 14.0 DCV. Then your starter are bad.

There also other thing to check like security alarm system with ignition switch kill... But most common problems with fail to start are mention above.

Oldsmobile alero 2001 making clicking noise wont stop

There can be a LOT of reasons for this. I assume you've been all through the car and found no loose objects, so the next best suspects are loose mechanical or electrical connections. If the noise is deep inside the dashboard, or under the car, you can TRY to locate and fix it, but should probably go to the dealer. If the noise is from the engine area, maybe it's an ignition wire arc-ing out (does the motor idle any rougher than it used to?). You can check by pulling into a garage or other dark place, opening the hood, and looking for a spark-light that makes the click. A handy person can fix this by installing a new wire set, maybe $50 or less. As long as THAT's happening, you might as well change the plugs, distributor, rotor and any other ignition bits requiring regular maintenance.

Santa fe 2007 wont start makes a single click noise

May be ab bad starter solenoid, or corroded/loose connection at starter, or (ground). Could also be a bad ignition switch. Start from the load; the starter. Test for 12V at starter, OK. Connect short wire from starter and touch sylenoid connection..

Car makes a ticking noise & wont start when i try to start it, what might it be?

Possible that the sound can be that the fuel pump is starting up to pump but cannot be observed as a fault. So unless you check for the fuel pressure and the ignition spark the engine's failure to start cannot be confirmed.Also you need to make sure there is no problem with the fuel, fuel filter.Check for error codes that might help to confirm. Finally the battery must be good and should be cranking well with enough voltage for the ignition circuit.

I have a 2000 chey tracker and there is no spark going to the spark plugs. the engine cranks over just fine.. but wont start. the spark plugs use a coil pack the ignites it but they dont seem or look bad.....

check by listening to see if your starter is clicking over the engine and if not then you might have to replace the starter. My starter went out on me and did not make a clicking noise that turned over the engine which told me the same problem that your having too. Ok if the engine cranks over just fine but wont start is a statement that is not true whatsoever so please explain which one is it thanks.
