The clicking sound is your starter trying to turn over, it could be a lot of things at this point or it could be something as little as a loose wire. Agreed with Steve Brent, start by cleaning the battery post, use a wirebrush or maybe some baking soda ( try to avoid getting baking soda all over the battery, might use a old tooth brush) next would be to find out how much volts your battery is holding, use of a OHM meter could help you, or just connect the battery up to a charger. If at this point your vehicle won't start it may be because of your starter. Bad solenoid, bad connection, warn down parts, if it is your starter it could be any of these possible. Make sure all your wires are clean and connected tight. If your car don't start maybe should have a mechanic look at it. Now I ain't a expert, this is just stuff I know. I ain't liable for any damage. But this is where I would start when having your problems.

2000 Dodge Intrepid, when I turn on the car the lights flicker but it won't turn over. no clicking sound. The cd player starts making noises.


It sounds like the battery is flat, this could be because the alternator has not charged it or something has drained the battery or the battery is faulty! What lights are flickering? We're any dash lights on prior to you not being able to start the car?

Lights started flickering battery light came on Dash lights and gages went crazy now wont start


Like you said, battery may be flat. You can check that with a multimeter.

Next check the alternator. Faulty alternator leads to uncharged battery.

98 accord wont start. lights flicker in dash and engine wont turn over


Have the battery checked.  You may have heard a fast clicking sound when the lights were flickering, if so it's coming from the starter solenoid.  If the battery is bad, have the voltage regulator and alternator checked also.  A bad voltage regulator or alternator will kill the new battery.    

Try starting with jumper cables, if that works, you can pull the battery out, take it to a auto parts store that will test it for free (most parts stores will do this).  If it's bad, you can put a new battery in and then drive straight to somewhere to have the charging system tested.
