I have a new battery for my car and it will not start crank just click.The car has very low mileage.

Without amp rating on charger let's move on to other items to look at.
Are the connections to battery tight and clean. Make sure you have cleaned both posts. Make sure there is no corrosion on cable ends. Also look at the wire that runs to ground , insure that is clean as well. Reconnect battery!
Turn off all accessories (radio, heater, A/C). When you open doors does the dome light turn on.
Does the dome light dim as you crank / click.
Can the car be jump started? If yes then I would lean to a weak battery. Without test equipment ( voltmeter) tough to varify.
You didn't explain why you replaced battery, but a purchased battery usually will normally be enough.
Make sure the battery size (amp hours) is rated for your engine size.
make sure wires to your starter are also corrosion free. A bad ground won't allow enough current flow giving you the click no crank.
try turning the key on off rapidly thus making starter move slightly and if it starts you are probably in need of new starter. The starter relay is easy to replace and cheaper so you can start there.

Car won't start just clicks. 2002 Mazda Protege5

The check eng light and the click are separate issue. The click is caused by a burned contact pad in the starter solenoid, the starter solenoid is mounted to the top of the starter motor on the engine. As for the other problem replace the O2 sensor, the heater is defective that preheats it when the engine is first started.

Car wont start, when i turn the key i only hear 1 click and the check charging system come on. all lights, radio, horn and heater come on

Sounds like the starter could be going bad or frozen. But before I did that I would check the battery to see if it has enough power to start the car. Your battery could have enough power to run radio and lights but not have enough cranking power to start the car especially if you are in a cold area. Low temperatures can cause your starter to freez and your battery to not crank the engine.

if the starter is clicking, try tapping on it with a hard piece of wood, like that of a hammer handle, while someone tries to start the car. if it starts, replace the starter. also make sure electrcal connectins on the starter are tight and clean. and check the starter relay if applicable

Engine start problems

the problem could be the starter,battery, battery cables, or alternator. the clicking could most likely be the starter going bad if not bad already or the battery weak or bad battery cables, if you have good power to everything else radio headlamps and heater the i would start by replacing starterlet me know what you find.
