I'm sorry you are having problems with your vehicle. I will try to help.

I'm a full time mechanic and have been a mechanic for over 20 yrs and I work part-time here on JustAnswer to help you and others repair their own vehicles, and I get credited by your ratings.. So before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as neeed, even after the rating.. I will need for you to be my hands and eyes since I'm not there.

When you try to start it, is it clicking really fast? or is it a single click when you hold the starter on? If it is a rapid clicking then the battery is definatly low or near dead. and replacing it should all that is needed to start. If it is a single click it still is most likely the battery but the starter could be going bad as well. Let me know what questions you have on this and I will do my best to answer them. Or if you would prefer the phone call option.

I strive to provide 5 star service. If I have satisfactorily answered your question please rate it as such and hit submit. Doing so is the only way I get compensated for my time. Also it doesn't close the discussion so we will still be able to communicate if there are further questions.

Thanks

Do you still need help with this?

Please let me know.

Did my advice help? If so would you leave a positive rating for me?

But if you still need help please let me know and I'll continue to help.

Thanks
