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.
