View Full Version : Car wont start

I tried to turn the car on today, but all I got was a clicking-machine-gun noise. I'm pretty sure that means its the battery, right? The dashboard lights up when I turn the key to accessories, but goes pretty dim when I turn the key to ignition. Should I buy a battery tester for $15 to make sure? Thanks for any help.

I would guess the battery is dead as well. Jump the car or run it down that street and pop the clutch--just get it started somehow and drive to a place that sells batteries. They should test it for free and let you know if the battery needs to be replaced.

You might need a new battery regardless if you flatlined the thing completely.
