Jina, you did not say what year,make, and model the car is.
If your cars battery is good, and you hear a faint click when turning key, the starter is probably stuck and on its way out (needs replaced). I will post a couple videos for you to watch and see if it sounds like yours.
to show your appreciation press the helpful button and follow me on fixya for more tips and info.

With ignition key turned on instrument panel light up but only a faint click heard. new battery

Sounds like you may have a bad starter or solenoid on the starter. But before you pull the starter do this check, turn the headlights on and then turn the key to start while someone is looking at the headlights, if they go out then check the new battery and make sure it is fully charged. If the headlights don't dim down or go out and you are still hearing a click then you will want to check the starter and solenoid because it must be getting power or else the solenoid would not be kicking in. Hope this helps.

Ac cluch does not kick in

if you press the ac button, do you hear a faint "click" inside the vehicle? someplace next to the passenger area floor there is a relay for the ac. Turn the vehicle on and press the ac switch while you are near the glovebox area and see if you hear the "click" if you hear that, your ac compressor is probably dead. If you don't hear that click. it's possible that the ac relay is dead and that's usually cheap at the auto parts store. good luck!

No head light high and low beam fuse is good

You have to check the headlight switch, and headlight relay, as these are the only two components that control both high and low beam headlights. You should hear a slight click from the control stalk switch as you turn it, and then you should hear a faint relay click from elsewhere a fraction of a second afterwards.

Also, if this is a car with daytime running lights, the Honda DRL modules are known to develop thermal cracks in the solder on their relays; this is an easy fix for anyone with simple electrical repair experience. This will often start as an intermittent problem and gradually worsen.

Followup with more detail if you check the above.

Car wants to turn over, gets fuel, spark plugs clean, fuse's are good

do you at least hear a clicking or clunking sound (possibly only a single click) when you turn the key to the start position - if there's not even that it's either a bad fuse or relay, if there's only a faint click (might not hear if hood is closed) it might be the solinoid on the starter; the louder clicking/clunk sound is likely the solinoid and just the battery may not be charged/holding a charge (iirc 5 years is the average life of most car batteries)

Volvo 2.0 S40cd 1996 . Battery not flat but won't start , ignition lights flashing , engine won't turn over . Lights ok and central locking ok . tried to jump start from another vehicle but no effect .

hi, the problem you are having sounds like the starter motor has packed up if when you turn the key you get nothing or you might even hear a faint click, if you open the bonnet then get someone to turn the key you might hear a faint click coming from the starter motor. This click indicates the starter motor needs replacing.

you could try hitting the starter motor with a hammer give it a few good hard hits this might get the starter motor working for a while if not then it needs replacing at once if it works then this isnt a permanent fix so be warned.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
