My 2000 lincoln ls wont start. i try to turn it over and there is nothing. when i hook it up to jumper cables everything comes on but when i try to start it it clicks. even when i charge it for 5 min.


Loose or Bad Battery Cables. Tighten all the ends, and inspect the cables closely end-to-end.

Turn the headlights on, and then try to start the car. If the lights dim wayyy down, it's the cables or connectors for sure, if it ain't the battery.

2004 escalade wont start


I had the same issue lately with a different car. I took the car to Autozone and they did a quick test of my battery. It turned out that the battery was pretty well shot, but it would work if someone jumped the car off.

You may try getting the battery tested to make sure you don't need to replace it.

Hope that helps!

The cart wont click over dont know anything bout cars so i need to find out if my starter or my alternator went out and sure my battery i need a new one because the car used to click over till we hooked up...


First if the jumper cables were hooked up backwards you could have killed your battery, which was probably dead to begin with. Get a new one then try and start. If it doesnt look more into the ignition switch than the starter. Alternator has nothing to do with starting, it could be bad and not charging the battery but will not cause your car not to start.

Not getting any power to my interior components but all the fuses are good under the hood. The engine cranks but wont start.


Have you checked the battery? How old is tge battery in the car? Do your headlights or ANYTHING work? What happens when you try to start the car - does it make any sounds (like a click click click noise?)or just nothing? Please post follow up. If you have a set of jumper cables you can at least check by hooking up the jumper cable to a running car - if your interior lighys, etc work with the vehicle on jumper cables and/or will start now you need to check tge battery

Every month or so it wont start, is slow starting most of the time.This morning tried jumping it and would turn over but not start, without the jumper cables on it just clicks


JUST CLICKING, MEANS LOW VOLTAGE AT THE STARTER. JUMPER CABLES ARE TRICKY.
IF THE WIRES INSIDE ARE TO SMALL, NO GOOD. JUMPER CABLES NEED TO HAVE STRONG CLAMPS & SHOULD BE MADE WITH AT LEAST # 4 BATTERY CABLE, ANYTHING SMALLER WON'T CARRY ENOUGH AMPS TO DO THE JOB. THE OTHER CAR NEEDS TO BE RUNNING AT HIGH IDLE {2000 RPM }. WAIT 5 MINUTES THEN TRY TO START THE LOW BATTERY CAR.

Batterie died after trying to jump start it my car was dead i plugged it in to charge i turn the key and the lights work the car wont even click over when turned ignition to start


Make sure you have the car properly in Park with lights off and try. If there's no clicking you either have a very loose terminal on the battery or the battery is no where near charged up enough. Try to jump start with someone wiggling the wires for the jumper cables. Once it starts clicking, leave the wires alone and let the battery accept a charge about 10 minutes while the other car is hooked up and then try again.

Ignition


Sounds like the battery is dead, you have just enough power to have the lights come on, but no cranking of the starter. Try putting the battery on a trickle charger, or hook up jumper cables to another car which is running. Let it run with the jumper cables connected for two mintues before you try and start your car.
