Lots of things. Fuel, timing belt broke, coil or coil pack, fuse, bad spark plugs, spark control or pick up in the distributor. What kind of car, how old, and how did it do when it wouldn't start the first time or what happened when it wouldn't? Many cars have the same thing happen so it helps to know what kind it is.
Jump it, it will either start or it wont
you can but it wont stay running if the battery is dead
bad battery or loose battery cable
You need to charge your battery or get a jump. Replace the battery or have it checked because it is dead.
Jump start car and ensure battery and alternator are good.
First guess would be a starter motor Does it turn over?
Your battery is dead (even though you have some power), jump start it and when car is running test voltage to see if alternator needs to be replaced. Also ensure battery terminals are properly secure if you have no luck.
If your 1996 Dodge Stratus wonÕt start you can try to jump start the car. There is no reset button like a computer. You can recharge your car battery with a jump start.
if the battery is completely dead you cant get enought amps thru jumper cables to the starter motor
Check your battery connections. If they're tight and no corrosion is present, then your battery may be dead. Recharge or jump start the battery. Still clicking? Replace the starter.
bad alternator, dead battery.
Jump start car and ensure alternator and battery are good.
Either a discharged battery or a corroded battery terminal. The battery could be discharged because the alternator isn't working.
try testing the starter
That could be the alternator or the battery. Try jump starting your car with another car's battery. If it still does not start, it is probably the alternator. If it starts, your battery is dead.
If it starts with a jump, then it is obvious the problem is with the battery. Or, if it started with the new battery at first and then will not start later on without a jump, your alternator is defective. If the battery is fully charged and the positive and negative cables are good, it's possible that the starter motor is bad.
sounds like a flat battery get a battery charger or jumpstart it with jump leads
Try getting a jump start. Could be a bad battery. If your battery is good, then you will need to get a new starter. It may be the Starter or the battery make be dead,
Jump start the car then go to auto parts store they will check the battery for you and let you know what the problem is.Most likely the battery is shot.
new battery installed . push starter and all I get Is a humming sound . wont turnover though
The engine may be too cold or the batteries may be out. Is the car turning over but not starting? If it wont even crank, first thing to do is charge battery or jump it. Then we can go from there, however I need more info and we can start going through diiferent steps to figure out why it wont start. First make sure you have power from battery.
if it doesnt turn over check your battery, you might just need a jump. the battery is under the rear seat.
it could be the starter
I assume you had the battery properly tested under load. Its starts and runs when jump started so that tells me assuming the battery is in fact good that the battery cable connections to the battery are bad and need cleaning.
