Why would a car not turn over or click with a jump start after leaving the lights on?

try using thicker wires . sometimes if the wires are too thin they create too much resistance and don't let as much juice as needed to start the vehicle.you could also have the other driver accelerate the other vehicle and as he does try starting yours. check your lights if they work perhaps try putting your car in neutral and then try starting it.as a last result simply borrow someones battery for a sec.

Not enough power to starter, jump it and then ensure alternator is good. Also check battery condition.

You would click on Start->Shutdown then click on Restart.

Is anything else going on? Will it start? If not take the battery cables off and reattach them. This is a common problem that I have had to address with mine. With mine nothing electrical would work as well, no lights, radio, etc... If I shook the cable the lights would click on and then it would die again when I tried to start it until I removed the cable and replaced it.

1990 toyota celica when jumper cables are hooked up dash lights turn on but the car won't turn over won't even click

The battery voltage is not high enough to start the car. The clicking is the solenoid trying to get enough power to activate the started motor. Try leaving the cables connected longer or try to get a better connection on the cables.

Click the Start button, then All Programs, and you may then have Microsoft Office on your list. In there you would find both Excel and Powerpoint. Click on the one you want to start it. They may even be directly on the All Programs list.Click the Start button, then All Programs, and you may then have Microsoft Office on your list. In there you would find both Excel and Powerpoint.

First of all is the lights working in the car? (over head lights or any kind of lights) If your not getting anything at all (no lights) then you should check the battery. If the lights are working then I would check your starter. Most of the time if you take the battery somewhere to get checked they will do it for free. So I would start there. Did you try to get a jump to see if that would start it? Hope this helped some.

A single click usually indicates a fault in the starter relay or solenoid - could also be a loose cable or wire.

procrastinated,Porsche would not start,phone call as I was leaving the house,

if you have lights and it swont start, you can look on dash and see if your security light is flashing. If so turn your key to the on position and leave it their for 10 min. or until it stops flashing. then you should be able to turn of the key and then try to start car like normal.

AnswerI would start with the bulbs, make sure they are good and that they have power going to them. If there is no power at the bulb the problem is either your headlight switch or the dimmer switch.I would start with the headlight switch.And I would start with the fusesSee "Related Questions" below for more

Sounds like your battery was weak to start with. What you did should not have caused any problems if your battery was in good condition so without seeing it, I think you should remove your battery and have your battery charged and load tested.

User Avatar

if all other lights are working, i would start with the reverse light switch.this is usually located on the side of the transmission

User Avatar

that sounds like i ground in the bake by the lights or if it has a trailer plug i would start their

When you try to start the engine and only get a single click on occasions, that is a sign the starter relay/solenoid is going bad.

Simplicity. Most people shorten it by leaving out the 'I' at the start.
