Why does it seem as though my battery is completely dead but it isn't?

A bad cell could have too much internal resistance when the battery has to draw many amps to turn starter over. Put headlights on then hit the starter, if the headlights go off, the battery is bad or a connection at the battery cable or ground cable is dirty.
If you have a voltmeter, attach to battery and notice voltage of ~12v or greater, then hit starter, if battery is bad, the voltage will go from ~12v to under 9v and result is starter won't turn over the engine.

When I turn key I get click but will not start

I single click typically indicates a bad starter solenoid and a new starter will generally fix the problem.

I series of rapid clicks when the key is held in the crank positon usually indicates a weak or dead battery. a new battery will usually solve this issue.

A bad connection at the battery can also cause a single click but typically the whole car will go dead for a brief period and then everything will again turn on. Cleaning the battery terminals will typically resolve this issue.

I got a chevy s10 v6 2001 and it wont crank

If it won't crank, then either your battery is dead, your starter relay is bad, bad starter, or dead battery. Lots of people confuse "cranking" with starting. Cranking truns the engine over, so if it won't crank, then you have a starter system problem.

2003 suzuki wont crank up

what car?, suzuki makes 100s. and what tranny it has.......??????
no crank is cause by only 3 things.
1: bad starting system.
2: bad charging system , making battery dead. or battery is bad.
3: the key line is dead , if A/T? the key line goes through the tranny
PRND switch (side of tranny),. must be in N or P to start.
3a; if manual tranny? the clutch switch fails.

can you start with a jump start?
that means the battery is dead, no charged or bad.
if not, then smack the starter with a hammer ,start now?
if not, hot wire starter, work now?
if not, make sure the Key line to the starter solenoid goes to way above 8v, when you crank, if not the cab wiring is bad.
that means, the key line from ignition switch to the starter is failing.
here's a no crankpage covering all that.

2001 Avalon was dead (battery). Won't start or jump

If the battery is fully charged there is but one thing tjst gives you those symtoms. You simply have a bad connection at the negativbattery cable. It won't hurt to ck the positive cable also. This os a common thing when a battery is connected and idle..Always disconnect the bat neg if the the vwhicle won't be used for more than two days. If possible, don't charge your dead battery with the alternator of the vehicle. It could very possibly cause charging problems. The clickinf is from insufficient voltage and jump stating with te dead battery still in place doesnt work because the goog and bad batteries are try to balance again, causing low voltage/amps to the starter. Good Luck. Sorry about the lesson, habit.
