    I have a 1997 nissan pick-up and it will not crank, it will not even atempt to turnover. The radio, headlights and new battery light on the dash and wipers are the only thing that will come on. The dash lights, blower or anything else will not come on inside the truck. When I turn the key everything will stop working (radio,wipers,new battery light) but the headlights still shine the same. They will not dim at all. When I turn the key I have a clicking sound under the hood. Clicking sound comes from back left side on the top. Had the battery checked and they said it was OK. Now I have no clue.

Look at battery connections for corrosion and whether those connections are snug check battery voltage (autozone will check it for free if you do have a voltage meter it should be 12vdc) you may just need to get a jump and let alternator charge the battery

My 2009 Pontiac torrent will not start after it sits for 2 days! So we bought a new Battery and it still does the same thing after it sits for 2 days

When you say it doesn't start, does that mean the engine cranks when you turn the key but won't fire, or absolutely nothing happens when you turn the key on? Does anything electrical work; headlights, horn, dash lights, radio?

With or without the fob, you should get lights. Check the installation and the battery voltage between the engine metalwork and fuses.

Engine won't turn over turn key and nothing happens dash lights up and head lights come on

1st check your battery cables to make sure there is no corrosion and connections are tight. If that is not the problem, pull the battery and bring it to a parts store for a free check of it's condition. A battery can power the lights, but not have enough juice to crank the engine over. Usually you hear the 'clicking' sound when the battery is weak, but not always. Let me know how it goes, if you still have a problem, I'll continue to try and help.
