03 Mitsubishi lancer won't start. Battery is fully charged, but I noticed while trying to start it my dash battery icon wouldn't flash on like other dash icons (like the oil icon) I did jump my husbands car (a mercury , larger engine n battery than mine) idk if that matters but anyone have any ideas? We beat the starter and still nothing...just a single quiet click. PLZ HELP!
