I have a 2011 Chevy Malibu, my car just ticks when I try to start it. What could that be? The car lights still come on, but the power lock barely works

I think you should first start with you battery, do you have 12 volts? did you try to see if the car will start with a jump or a known good battery?

I haven't tried to jump it yet

Try that first...

If you are able to get the car started with a jump and need to change the battery...MAKE SURE YOU USE A MEMORY SAVER, SO YOU DON'T LOSE THE CAR'S MEMORY
