Car won't start without pushing the red connector on the battery

I have to push the red connector down every time I need to start my car. Once the car is running its fine, it continues running. I tried to tighten it but it seems as tight as it can go. Does it need to be cleaned or can I wedge a piece of metal in between the connector and battery?

SOURCE: Fiat Strade 1.6 2005 My 20 year old son's FIRST

Based off the fact that the car runs good when pushed I would say that you have a dead spot in the starter motor. These are typically swapped from the old motor onto the new motor so it is probably original. I've seen this quite a few times. If he installs a new starter motor the issue should be corrected. Based off what he already has invested in the car I would say it is certainly worth fixing. Hopefully he wont have any more problems after that. The starters typically run anywhere from $125-$175. I hope this helps your son.

Clicking noise in driver's side window


Your master switch is stuck in the running position and need to be replaced. Very simple to do. The reason your battery is running down is the switch is constantly activated and draining the system. Once you replace the switch everything will be good

I have a 2004 pontiac sunfire with a few problems. First, when I turn the ignition to start the car all I get is a fast-paced clicking sound from the dash area and the engine doesnt even turn over. This...


as fo the idle, there is a IAC ( idle air control to maintain idle. you may have to remove this and clean the carbon out of it, and the intake as well. as for the clicking there are 3 solutions to fix it. battery if it is ok, the solinoid is bad on starter or the starter itself. but it does sound like a bad starter solinoid, because a bad battery will make the same clicking from solinoid. but make sure battery is ok first. when engine is off voltage at battery should be at least 12.6 or better. when running and alternator is ok, it should read about 14.2 to 14.7 if lower then 14 volts alt. is bad. have a very good day !! hope this helps!
