Car won't start


Asked by Oct 10, 2016 at 06:31 AM about the 2005 Dodge Magnum R/T

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an 05 Dodge Magnum Hemi I drove
it to the store it wouldn't start so I had the
battery tested at a mechanic shop it said
bad battery so I went to a battery
wholesale store to purchase the battery
and asked them to test the battery as well
the battery tested good and the volts were
at 12.6 I said ok so I didn't purchase a
battery just I went home installed
the battery and my car started right up
drove it to advance auto to test battery,
starter, and alternator. Test the battery it
said bad ok I guess 2 outta 3
ain't bad lol so I try to turn the car back on
and it wouldn't crank just one
click...nothing but the doors unlock lights
come on etc. tried to jump it off couldn't
jump next I smell burning plastic...had the
car towed home and discovered my wire
from the solenoid to the starter melted not
completely but all of the covering so I'm
not sure if I have just a bad battery and
damaged the solenoid and it's wiring from
jumping it off or if my battery is good and
the problem is the solenoid because it
never smoked b4 trying to jump it off or is
it the starter...all it does is one click and
nothing...please help
