HHR Won't start- Just got a click- Jumped it & all seems OK.

Customer Question

HHR Won't start- Just got a click- Jumped it & all seems OK. over 14 volts charging, over 13 volts with cables disconnected. I put new battery in 7-year-old HHR last spring. Had this problem 2 monthes later & now again. My neighbor is a very experienced mechanic & said he had this problem with his Chevy van; Said you must push clamps down all the way, then tighten the clamp screws. I'm thinking of replacing clamps- or can there be a drain somehow?
JA: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?
Customer: Click sounds like MAYBE a starter relay ??? Hmmm.
JA: What year is your HHR?
Customer: 2009
JA: Are you fixing your HHR yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Loosened, pushed down & tightened clamps.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Wonder if it is a common problem. It only began after I replaced the battery- I've done that job many times
