2005 Nissan Frontier It will not turn over. There is clicking noise coming from fuse for cargo lamp. I have tried to jump it off. Will not respond. Help

sounds like you need a new starter if the battery is charged and it wont turn over just click
you also might want to clean the terminals on the battery that will also give you just a click

hope this helps you

When i try to start it, it makes that clicking noise. i think i need a new starter right? but where is it? i'd like to get one at napa and try to put it in myself

NO. The first thing you need to do is check the battery because that is probably the fault.

If you can "jump start" the car by connecting up power from another vehicle then you have a flat or failed battery.
If you are not familiar with how to do this then here is a web site you can read......

If the battery is old it may be faulty or not hold it's charge and need to be replaced. If it is under 3 years old it may be OK and just need to be put on a charger and fully re-charged. However it can still be faulty and require replacement if it will not hold it's charge.

My 2001 Kia Sportage EX won't start. At first it would grind like it wanted to turn over, but now I only get a clicking noise. It happened a couple of weeks ago and I was able to have it jump started....

Well, the next question is, how is the battery getting charged or is it charged up enough?
If it's not charged up as indicated by the Amp meter of a charger hooked up to house current, then the alternator may not be outputing enough current or voltage to charge the 1 year old battery up.

Try charging the battery up independently of the car's alternator to find out.

Good luck on this repair.

C-50 wont start. Had bad battery on a trickle charger. Took to friends house. Went to leave n battery was dead. Took it home n charged it. Brought it back n won't start. Battery has charge but the bike...

Chances are the battery will no longer hold a charge. An internal short could be why. Bike batteries seldom last more than two years. How old is the battery? Jump the battery from your car battery. If the starter works, the battery is bad, not the starter. You DO have water covering the top of the plates in each battery cell don't you? Please rate my answer, thanks.

When trying to start the car it only makes a clicking sound

Try this if the battery is not a sealed type open the caps and check the fluid level to make sure that none of the cells are low or dry, then if that is not the problem remove the battery and take it to your local parts store they can do a load test on it. A battery can show full charge and still not have enough cold cranking amps to start the car. I hope this helps you, good luck!!

My casio ex z8 battery keeps flashing red when i try to charge it, its less than 1 year old.

You can jump start the battery by taking a piece of speaker wire (any wire) and contacting it to a 9-volt battery for 30-60 seconds. Make sure to contact the positive to positive and negative to negative, or you may short the battery. After jump starting it the battery should charge as normal.

My z3 starting problem

i would say its a dead (flat) battery. if its more than 4 or 5 years old, it might be time to replace it.

try jumping it with another vehicle. if it jump starts, then replace the battery.

if its a newer battery (less than 4 years old), then something is draining the battery or the alternator is not recharging it.
