Lots of possibilities for a no start condition. Do you hear any type of noise (such as clicking, etc) when trying to start the car? If not, recheck all connections and fuses under the hood as well as inside the car. Is this an auto or manual transmission? If its manual check the switch on the clutch. It its auto it could be the neutral safety switch.
Sounds like a bad battery or alternator, or it could have thrown the drive belt off. Check too see that the belt is still on and then charge the battery and see if it starts. If it starts, run for a while and dies again with no crank, it is most likely an alternator.
Sounds like you have fuel pump issues. May need to replace the fuel pump. Does the check engine or service engine soon lights come on? That or maybe injectors, or something alone the fuel system line. First check would be fuel pump.
I know it sounds daft, but get a mate to turn the engine over, touch the starter motor, thats the round thing on the bottom of the engine, sorry i that sounds patronising, tap it softly with a peice of wood or a light hammer, the solinod is stuck, that will release it. Don't be scared to give it a whack, but only when someone is turning the engine over or it won't work.
It seems the starter is playing up.First check if your battery is charged fully or try to jump start and see what happens.If the engine start then it's either you need a new battery or else you need a replacement alternator.Test using a voltmeter if the actual altenator is working.Finally the last option is the starter motor that needs changing or fixing...Hope this helps.
My 2004 Kia Rio just started losing compression and died on me. I tried starting it and it only clicks. I checked the battery cables and they are not corroded and very tight. Could it be the battery or the alternator not charging the battery? there is no water in the oil and it's not the water pump.
It almost sounds like you have a loose connection at the battery. If the connection is loose it can cause the starter to click as you have described. Also it could be the starter itself. If the starter is bad (locked up) it can make the clicking noise and not start the engine. If you can get to the starter, try to tap on it with a hammer while someone is trying to start the engine. I hope this helps.
