Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Car makes a ticking sound when turn key. The radio,lights,and everything else comes,had battery and starter checked they're good. Alternator was replaced 6 months ago

Battery voltage is high enough to turn on lights but not high enough voltage to kick over engine. Have battery voltage checked with load test and replace battery/clean terminals to start with.

I have a 2006 Acura TL that is doing the same thing. I have new battery, starter & just replaced Alternator. Still won't work. I disconnected the Hands on Link hoping that would solve problem. Nope. I am at wits in.I know problem is electrical, but broke trying to find problem. HELP
