Asked by Nov 14, 2015 at 01:21 PM about the 2013 Chevrolet Equinox LTZ

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

This morning My Equinox would not start.  Heard only a clicking sound.  
When it started it ran fine. Drove for about 30 minutes no issues.  Parked for
twenty minutes and car had same starting issue.  Drove back home and when
started again same issue but when it started hazard lights and windshield
washers turned on at the same time.

Sounds like either a dying battery or bad battery cable connection. If your battery is original to the vehicle, replace it. GM batteries installed at the factory are only rated for 3 years. You're close to, if not past, the 3 year mark on a '13 model. HTH. -Jim
