Will it at least crank?

Sorry i haven't been able to respond right away i work 12 to 14 hours a day 6 days a week and when i get home just want to shower and hit the bed. Answer your question is all i get is a clicking sound that's it when i crank it and then it stops.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I figure it's either the camshaft sensor gone bad or the new starter i got maybe defective. So i decided to have the car towed tomorrow to my mechanic to fix sorry to have bothered you and thanks.

If it only clicks that is going to be the starter or the constant power supply to the starter is not connected good or the signal power from the starter relay is not enough. Also, a weak battery can be to blame. The cam sensor is not to blame.

You now will see a rating scale 1=bad to-5=excellent because I have posted a full or partial answer instead of an info request. When you rate I get a portion of the deposit you made, no rating means you still paid, but I earn nothing. My goal is understanding your question, and addressing it in full detail. In return, receiving a 5-star rating. Rating does not close the post or stop the conversation. Please keep in contact and reply as much as needed. Thanks, Chris

Well then it must be a weak connection cause the battery is brand new and fully charged have to check starter which is also new

Do you own a volt meter so we can do some testing?
