Car won't start

Asked by Jan 21, 2017 at 04:12 AM about the 2012 Nissan Sentra 2.0 SR

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hey, so my car will not start. Last year a
similar thing happened around winter. My
car would not turn over. I had AAA come out
and it so happened that my battery was too
low to start the engine. Now it's happened
again, but this time I'm getting a clicking
noise when I turn the key. I think I may have
burned out the starter. This car is very new.
I've only had it for a little under 2 years. Only
32,000 miles. I don't know anything about
cars please help.

The clicking sound is an indication of a low battery. On brand new cars they do not put in the best battery so it is possible that you need a new battery. Also have the charging system checked, this is what keeps the battery charged.
