Hi Sir or Madam, welcome. I'm acramstr. And I will be assisting you today.

It sounds like the battery is low on charge

Have you tried jump starting the car?

Are the battery cables corroded or loose?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.

hi how are you my name is XXXXX XXXXX thanks for assisting me. i think its what you said at first i believe the battery is low on charge. im hoping it gets to be that. and no i havent tried jumping it because i do not have the battery jumper. and the cables are brand new it doesnt seem to be loose or corroded.

Expert:  acramstr replied 11 months ago.
ok, Juan . Fast clicking and flashing dash lights in these usually means the battery voltage is too low. Before you do anything else I try jump starting the car or charging the battery. The battery can go dead pretty fast on these cars if you leave the key on for even a short time due to the amount of electronics they have. This could be all that is wrong.
Customer: replied 11 months ago.

could this be because of the short circuit that happened when i was trying to fix the radio might be the cause? because i did felt a small slightly shock but notting to injure me. im just hoping its notting else that might cause something in the car not to turn on.

Expert:  acramstr replied 11 months ago.

Anything is possible. But lets try jump starting it first. I don't think anything by the radio that can short could cause the car not to start.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
