Battery is good, get a single click sound when turn key - suggestions? Just purchased has been starting and driving fine
New to me, 47,000 mi, I am 4th owner, prior owner drove avg. 77 mi/yr
We are wondering if starter may be stuck on flat spot from sitting?
Have read other suggestions could be anti-theft system - How so?
if u jump it does it work? u might have a draw on the battery causing it to die over night, i had the same problem on my trans am after i bought a brand new battery....i took it to a shop to get the system tested (like $150 maybe less) they said two things...one i had a draw somewhere, but with my aftermarket wiring they couldnt fix it without just unplugging wherever the draw was coming from, so now i have no dome light and the button to pop open the trunk doesnt work....and number two, my batter didnt have good enough cold cranking amps....if this is the same battery its always had, with no problems, then i'd check if the cables r loose at all (the smallest play can affect it regularly) and give the terminals a good cleaning
If you have a flat spot on the starter after 47K miles, was the car made pre-WWII? Clean all contacts, and use a jumper start to get more juice to the starter. The solenoid also may be an issue you need to look at. Pull the starter and take it to a shop to have it checked out.
