1999 Pontiac Sun fire will not start starter is not turning battery has lots of power when the key is in the ignition and turn to power on not to start engine there is a ticking sound?

battery cable is loose Also check... The ticking sound comes from the starter not getting enough battery power. Even though there is battery power, there is not sufficient load power from the battery to start the vehcile. Put a volt meter across the battery posts and try and start the vehicle. If the voltage drops below 9 volts you need a new battery.

We have a dead 1998 Sunfire it makes a clicking sound and won't turn over tried to charge batter and would not start?

Chances are that your starter went out. Sometimes, the solenoid just gets stuck and you can have someone try to start the car while you bang on it with a hammer to get it unstuck. If this doesn't fix it though, you might be looking at changing out the starter. Don't try to keep cranking while you have this problem though, it could drain your battery life quickly.
