Are u sure us battery is good, cause sounds like a discharged battery? Did u try a jump? Try cleaning the battery cables by battery too. Try these things first.

It's a bran new battery and the jump didn't work


Did u clean cable on battery? Try to determine where sound is coming from. Sounds likes starter. If u can call auto stores and c if u take it off can they test it. If so try that b4. Buying one

OK and ya I cleaned the cable and the sound is coming from the starter cuz I was under it and the sound was right there


So now call c who will test, take off and test. Probably burned out or stuck. Still jus replace with a good one. Hope it works!

OK thx
