Q: Car clicking when I turn the key

asked by on

My car is clicking when I turn the key, but it won't start. I think the battery is dead.

A low battery is the most common cause of a no-start. A qualified technician, such as one of our YourMechanic experts, will inspect and test the battery, charging system, and starting system to confirm any diagnosis.
