So my car won't start. All it does is just click repeatedly. Had my starter check and it works good so does my battery. Could it be my alternator or could it be something else??

It sounds like the battery is going bad, have you tried jumping it?

The alternator won't start your car- it just charges the battery- something is bad- either the starter, the solenoid, or the battery- or your battery cables might be corroded and making a bad connection, or possible an ignition switch- I'm guessin' it's the starter/solenoid- you say you had it "checked" but by whom? And how did they "check" it?

Im trying to figure out the answer why to this today??!?? Try these steps it works for me. Disconnect the battery Terminal (negative) for 30 seconds, put the key in the ignition place key in ON position then reconnect the battery terminal with key in that position. Then try to turn on the car... If this doesnt work repeat again to make sure your doing it right. If it still doesnt work change the position of the key and repeat the battery disconnect / reconnect with key in different position.
