Customer Question
Just drove 1 1/2...

Just drove 1 1/2 blocks to the store, ran in, came out - car won't start. Turn the ignition on, lots of clicking, engine lights on....radio, air, lights, etc. work. Car does not start.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you double-checked the battery? And are the wiring connections to and from the starter in good shape?

Battery fine, no problems at all with car starting prior to this. No warnings at all.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Saturn?

2007 Saturn Ion

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Ion yourself? What have you tried so far?

Not sure what to do at this point. The car is at the store still. Haven't tried anything else, except to start the car for 5-10 minutes with the same outcome.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Nothing has been wrong with the car....no.

No. Battery is fine.....radio, lights, etc. all working!
Saturn Mechanic: john -aka eauto, The Car Guy replied 10 months ago

Low battery voltage will cause all sorts of clicking for realy switches and

Just because the radio works does not mean that the voltage is good. to statt the vehicle it takes a lot more power than what it takes to run the radio and lights
