check your battery connections to make sure good. then try fuses then relays. if all are good try to jump it off. if that dont work its probably your starter solonoid. good luck

A clicking noise when trying to start your car and no engine movement typically means that the battery is too low to crank the engine or there may be a bad connection at the battery. If the battery and the connections are fine, then the starter may have failed. A mechanic would check the voltage at the starter to see if it is getting power. If it is and is not turning the engine, then starter may be bad. It can even be engine failure, but that does not typically occur out of nowhere. If you need further assistance, I recommend you have a mechanic inspect any other components that may be causing the problem.

Sounds like a weak battery. Try a jump start.

Did you check the battery voltage? your battery may be dead, even if you see lights coming on it might not have enough power to start the car.

I got in a fender bender and my positive wire came off the battery. With driving around it got loose and the battery died. I had the negative side of the battery disconnected and charged it with a battery charger. Now that the terminals are back on the charged battery the lights next to gear shifter knob are blinking and also the lights on the outside of the front and back of the car. Then it ended up starting, sometimes it will start sometimes it won't. Does anyone know what kind of problem this is?
