My Car Won't Start , What could it be ??

The Number One cause for your car or truck to give you the "click, click, click" no start blues is a dead battery. Just because the radio plays or the lights illuminate on the dash doesn't mean the battery has a strong enough charge to start your engine. The Engines starter requires over 50 amps to spin it, where as the radio only requires less than 5 amps.

  1. Make sure your battery connections are clean of corrosion on the inside and out.
  2. Check for corrosion inside the battery cables themselves.
  3. Check for loose connections at the battery.
  4. Fully charge a battery before testing.
  5. After charging and testing the battery or replacing the battery, Test the alternator.
