OK, so you're engine won't turn over right? It just clicks. This is a sign of low or no power getting to the starter. The usual cause is bad/dirty battery cables or connections. My first GUESS would be at the starter. I'd clean them all to be sure. Both at the battery and the starter.

********I have a '94 grand prix that just started doing something similar. Most likely a battery/power issue, what you need to do is have someone check and see (when the car is started) if the battery is getting charged by the alternator. (of course after you check battery terminals for corrosion because a bad connection could explain why it sometimes starts and sometimes doesn't) If the terminals are clean there probably is an issue with the battery not charging causing the clicking sound usually caused by low/no power from the battery, also try checking if the battery is bad... might be time for a new battery because it might not be holding a charge all together.******

What is wrong when 1989 crown Victoria Car starts and runs turn it off starter drags until it sets awhile?

Most likely the starter should be replaced. When it heats up, it will turn the engine with a lot of strain. like the battery is low. When it cools down, it will turn freely.

Why does your 1994 Chrysler New Yorker LHS not start every time it sits for awhile?

Is it a problem of the battery goes dead or does it crank but not catch? If the battery is going dead over time perhaps you need to check the battery and/or alternator. If it's cranking but not starting, check the computer codes.

bad switch.

1988 Buick Century good battery starter will start sometimes but every once in awhile has no power no headlights nothing an hour later you can go out and it will start right up am looking for a cause?

Any time you have no power to the headlamps I would concentrate on a bad battery cable or ground cable or battery connection. It works now once in a while, but if you don't get it taken care of, it will soon fail totally. Trace and clean all connections starting from the battery back thru all connections and DON'T skip any that "look good".

Probably a bad spot on the stater or the solenid

98 Chevy Malibu that starts the first time every time but takes awhile you can hear the starter but sometimes it takes 5 seconds to start What is the problem?

could be a weak battery, not turning engine fast enough at startup. check battery voltage should be approx. 12.5 volts when not running.about 14.0 when running.

Why do when your car sit it starts right up and after it runs for awhile it wont start like the starter is bad or something?

"hot start" issue. Could be the solenoid, or starter itself.
