    check battery(water level in cells& load test it) and if cables are loose & for corrosion use baking soda & water to clean. if you can reach starter try hitting it with a hammer it might start. if not replace starter

    Make sure it is in park if so try putting your foot on the brake and starting in neutral. Check if the security light on the dash comes on when you turn the key to the start position

    Is the security light on?

Car wont start. just makes a clicking sound. 97 Buick Riviera

You may need to have your battery checked. A weak battery will cause clicking when the key is turned. Many auto parts stores will test your battery for dead cells for free.

My expedition keeps dying on me the battery dies once i get it started though it works fine its when i leave it parked over night there is a new alternator on it cause the old one went out and the battery...

I'd run it by Autozone if this was the batter that was in it when the alatnator went out it may have cause the batter to get a bad cell, they will check it for free, Most batters have a 3 to 5 yr. warrenty. DONT tell thim your alatnitor went out if the battery showes bad this will void the warrenty just simpley say my batter has a bad cell....of corse the place you bought the batter will test it as well befor they give you or pro-rate your old battery good luck
