I just tried starting my car and it just made clicking noses

Customer Question

I just tried starting my car and it just made clicking noses and didn't start. At first I thought it might be the battery but the lights and dash all light up. Do I put a battery charger on or is something else wrong with my engine?

the odds are if it was running fine the last time you drove it the battery just may be weak

can you make sure both battery cables are clean and tight and then charge the battery or try a jump start and see if it will start up ?

if it does then have the battery and alternator tested the odds are the battery is just bad

any local parts store will test both the battery and alternator for you for free
