Q: Lights work, but car won't start.

asked by on

All the lights work, but the engine does not turn over.

I would need more information to determine the problem. If you hear a clicking noise but the engine wont turn over, then your battery may not have enough charge or may have a bad connection. Test the battery, if the battery is good, then its possible you could have a bad starter, bad fuse relay or PCM. Have a technician look it over and they can test all those areas for a problem.
