why wont my car start?
I tried turning on my car but it wouldnt start, I turned on the lights of the car to see if it was the battery but the lights lit up and the radio came on too, so whenever i turned the key to turn it on it made like a clacking sound and wouldnt turn on. Today I tried to turn it on and it sounded like it was going to start but it was very weak and didnt start, and i noticed i didnt hear the clacking sound today.
Check the battery voltage or try jumping it. Heck, even try charging it overnight with an external charger. I recently had a battery go on me, where one of the cells directly shorted out. Everything would come on, headlights, stereo, etc. The moment I'd try to turn on the car I would hear a repeated clacking noise. Tried it again later, car was just dead. I also had to replace the alternator as well due to the shorted cell in the battery. Apparently it caused the alternator to overheat the night before and ruined it.
my car still wont start
