When I try to turn the key over I get one loud click. I just put a new battery in and it turned over fine 5 minutes before it wouldn't turn over again. The ignition switch is new too.
My car has 200000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Usually the single loud click as you turn the ignition is an indicator of a starter that is having difficulty engaging to the flywheel. However this could be an issue with a starter relay, a faulty ignition relay or multiple electrical harnesses that might be faulty. To know for certain, you should have a mobile mechanic complete a car is hard to start inspection; so they can narrow the root source of your starting issues and recommend the right repairs.
