won't even crank over??


Asked by Feb 21, 2011 at 07:36 AM about the 1989 Chevrolet Corsica

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Driving me crazy, its got to be something small. I have a brand new battery and new alternator in my car but I was having a hard time starting it. That low battery sound. The battery is fully charged, I checked. Now the car doesn't even crank over. Turn the key, not even a tick. I don't get it. Anyone have any ideas, I'm stumped.
