I doubt the noise is battery related. A top quality battery is a worthwhile investment in my opinion.

Nothing never came to information panel of something wrong besides service tire monitor system an time for an oil change.i heard like a click click click noise could it be the connectors i noticed that the negative was rusted an didn't tighten up securely it was kinda still loose like.im going to get the correct vented battery & change the correctors an fuses.if that doesn't work I will check the starter.


That CLICK CLICK CLICK is the normal/typical sound of a dead battery trying to turn over the starter but doesn't have enough juice to get the job done!!!! Do yourself a huge favor and never buy a car battery from walmart!!!! Even their best battery is only subpar at best. Buy yourself a GOOD QUALITY battery from an actual auto parts store and make absolutely sure they sell you a battery no more that 1-2 months old. All new batteries have a manufacture date right on them, it's law!!!! Make sure the auto parts store doesn't sell you one they've had sitting on the shelf in the back of the store for the last 6-12 months!!!
