hey guys im new here....just curious as to why my car failed to start this morning. Since i live in north jersey, it can get pretty cold, and this morning was brutal. I tried firing it up, and it would try to start for a few seconds, then it starts making this terrible clicking noise. the battery light and check engine light both turn on. Also, if i just try to turn just the electric components in the car...all the displays are either faded or do not even show up (radio would not even turn on). Does this simply mean my battery died or is it something more?

any help is appreciated.

Sounds like your battery is done. Did you test the voltage of the battery?

In really cold weather, the displays won't show up right away.
