Sounds like it, the battery needs a large amount of current to be turned over, try charging it up, i think it will solve your problems

My s10 when turn key on it makes couple clicking sounds then everything goes dead. Tried few times an wont start what may be the problem


The "clicking" is usually the starter solenoid chattering. This can be caused by:
  1. Bad Starter Solenoid
  2. Bad Starter
  3. Weak battery not supplying enough current to engage starter.
Turn on the interior dome light. When you crank the engine, if the light dims slightly, the battery is probably OK. If it goes out, or blinks at the rate of the clicking noises, have the battery tested.

Wont crank or kick start, battery and fuses seem fine lights work, click when i hit start button?


When you attempt to kick start it, does the engine turn over or not? If not, the the engine is locked because it is seized up, or it is in gear.
If it does turn over, then look at your head light while attempting to start it... if it dims some - that is normal, but if it dims a lot - your battery may be weak. Please reply with some more information! Thanks!

How do I know if my the reason my 2005 Grand Prix GT won't start is bec I need a new battery?


The clicking sound is coming from the starter. It could be a faulty solenoid, or you could be right about the battery. If the battery is too weak, the starter will not engage. A quick test is to turn on the dome light. If the dome light dims slightly when cranking and you hear the clicks it is probably the starter. If the light goes out or dims greatly, it is probably the battery. If the battery is weak, it is a good idea to have the charging system tested as well. If the battery is older than three years, it is probably just the battery.

87virago1100cc wont kick over seems like a relay or switch cause it wont even click


Do any lights come on when the key is turned? Are you you sure there is power from the battery? If yes then what happens when the start button is pressed? Do the lights dim at all? Even without a click noise if the button is supplying power to the solinoid the oil check/dummy lights should dim slightly. If no dimming but the lights are on when the key is turned, start by checking the starter button, if there is no power there trace your way back to the battery with a voltmeter until you find where the power stops.
