My car won't start when i turn the key its only making clicking noise.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hi and thank you for contacting YourMechanic. If you are getting a clicking sound when trying to start your vehicle that is a very good indication that your battery is dead.
If the voltage is within spec, you may have a ground issue. Check your ground cable for corrosion, if it is loose - both at the battery and at the point where it connects to the engine block. If your negative (black) cable is corroded it will need to be replaced.
If you would consider, YourMechanic will send a certified technician to you and perform these tests to accurately diagnose your no start condition and make any necessary repairs. Thank you!
