Your battery is not giving enough power to start the car. It may be battery, alternator, voltage regulator or bad cables.

Jump start car and ensure battery and alternator are good.

jump start the car and get a new battery and if it isn't the battery it could be the alternator or both, but try a new battery first

Could be, the engine is seized, the starter is bad, dirty or loose battery connections, battery in vehicle being jumped is stone dead.

Likely low battery- the click is the starter solenoid trying to pull in, but not enough current to turn the starter motor. If it will start with a jump, either battery or charging system needs attention.

It sounds like you may have a dead battery. Have you tried getting a jump?

Jump it, there is not enough power to starter. Ensure alternator and battery are good.

You need to charge your battery or get a jump. Replace the battery or have it checked because it is dead.

i might be wrong but it could be the 'bendex'. this is the part of the starter motor that disengages it after the engine turns on. it might not be fully disengaged from the previous trip. sometimes all that is needed to get it to go is to rock the car foreward or back a little. hope that helps.

Flat battery or sticky starter motor / solenoid - try re-charging battery or get a jump start Flat battery or sticky starter motor / solenoid - try re-charging battery or get a jump start

sounds like a flat battery try jump starting it with set of jump leads you could have a bad connection between the battery and the starter or a broken engine earth strap i would try jump starting it first do

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.

Sometimes yes and sometimes no, depending on what is wrong with the battery.

The starter is probably at fault. Hit it with a hammer real good and if it starts it is the starter for sure. That won''t work but a few times.

Sounds like it could be your battery, it might just need a jump. If not try banging your starter alittle with a hammer.

AnswerDim lights and lots of clicks is an indication of too low a charge on the battery. When jump-starting, allow the battery to be attached to the jumper cables for about 5 minutes before trying to crank the engine. If that fails, check for loose battery cables at the battery, ground, or starter. If all connections are good, then the battery is too far gone and must be replaced. Note: You need to find out why the battery discharged - did you leave the lights on? is the alternator bad?.

To do double clicks it is first easiest to start out pushing off from a table or high surface so you can jump really high. Then while you are jumping try to click your heels twice. It helps if your toes are pointed and feet are turned out. Once you can get the clicks by pushing off a surface try to then do it on your own. It takes a lot of practice but eventually you will be able to get it.

You just jump start it.

two very good possibilities are the battery, and the starter. its easy to test, just try to jump start it. if it still just clicks it needs a starter. if it starts its probably the battery.

yes, you can jump start ANY car

mini clip is probably better than jump-start because mini clip has a lot of games and jump-start is one game but I've never been on jump-start
