Alternator Issue? Brand New battery, no turn over, rapid clicking

Asked by Sep 27, 2015 at 12:39 PM about the 2002 Pontiac Sunfire

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

One Friday night(10pm) no sign of life from my car. Got it jumped moved to a
new parking lot then let it sit for a while. Turned it off. 14 hours later I go back
to the car, attempt to start it up and the rapid clicking occurs.. No Engine
turnover. I have had this problem in the past. The battery at this point is 2
weeks old and has been driven for 50 or so miles.

If it is not your cables, you may need to find a current leak to ground or some minor accessory left on (like a trunk light you can't see). Your symptom screams that the battery, although new, has been drained while sitting.
