Check to make sure that you have a good battery in the car. sounds like a low voltage issue,, if it is a bad battery, make sure the alternator is charging the battery.

clean battery posts and terminal to shiny clean. tighten the clamps . If there is a relay check the operation of the relay. If the lights go dim when you turn the key to start then have a load test done on the battery as good lights going dim on starting are an indication of a bad cell

Car battery charge warning light stays


Have a load test done on the battery to check for failing cell. Have an auto electrician check the alternator for correct output at revs. Check drive belt for condition and tension.

Sounds like your alternater, get a multimeter set it to volts start the car then check the battery is getting 14 or over volts from the alternater to the battery , if your getting less than that it's not putting enough volts back to the battery to run the car with good luck colin

Car wont start, no clicks no sound


make sure you have power getting to your starter when you crank. check the small nut on the starter. should have 12 v or very close to it. this will tell you if your getting power to the starter or if somethign before the starter and something maybe with your anti theft system or not. its hard to say online cause of that anti theft. doest the light flash at all? the anti theft light?

if your getting power to the starter when you crank make sure your getting good power to the starter by turning on the head lights and see if they dim. a good starter will cause the headlites to dim when attempting to start. if nothing dims check connections. or assume bad starter motor. make sure your also getting power to the main starter stud as well.

good luck
