Check the battery cables, they might be loose or cracked. Might be the ignition switch? Does it crank and not start? I would then suspect the fuel pump. Have the fuel pressure tested.

It act's if the battery is dead battery isn't


do the lights and radio go on when you put the keys in the ignition?

The headlight on the driver side comes on when I turn the key but it just clicks like a dead battery


Check your battery cables, sounds like you have a bad connection. When you start it and drive over bumps it could connect or disconnect. Hope this helps !!
