If you hear a clicking sound, replace the starter. If you hear nothing, it could be the ignition switch, or starter. If it cranks slowly, replace the starter.

In addition, a corroded battery terminal, bad cable, or loose ground strap to chassis.

Turn over = attempring to start or actually start?

Check the cable that goes to the starter check the main fuse

No modern vehicle will engage the starter motor unless the neutral switch is engaged. If it isn't turning over at all, this is just one possible reason why. Try moving the gear selector from "P" to "N", if it's an automatic and try it again. If it's a standard transmission, make sure you're pushing the clutch pedal right to the floor and make sure that nothing (floor mat, dead squirrel, junk food packaging, etc.) is getting in the way.

Possibly a bad alternator. The Alternator charges the battery when the vehicle is running. If the battery is not being charged this could cause the vehicle not to start.

Several things can cause your vehicle not to start. The most common cause of the vehicle not starting is a battery that needs to be charged.

ALTERNATOR OR THE BATTERY GROUND WIRE Have you tried checking your Alternator? I know this is why mine on my vehicle would not stay charged..

I seriously doubt that it's the alternator that's doing the clicking. Most likely it's the starter. Check the battery, a discharged battery can cause that problem. Have the battery charged then start the vehicle and drive it to a shop that can check the charging system. Many auto parts retailers will test the charging system for you.

The check power light on a vehicle is a warning indicator. A common cause of this is a improperly charged battery.
