Q: Q: My car died and won't start

asked by on

Ok so I drove my car to work the other night and as soon as I got into the driveway my car died. The next day we attempted to jump it and nothing happened. We took the battery to get tested and the battery was good. When I turn the key I heard a click sound. Now I'm trying to figure out what to do! The starter acts like it wants to engage but doesn't have enough juice to do it. My starter isn't that old and my alternator has been charging my battery too high voltage! I'm gonna try to jump it again tomorrow but I'm needing advice on what to do. I don't want to buy something if I don't have to. I just want to figure out what's wrong and get my car moving! Help me plz!

My car has 14500 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
