Q: One click in car won’t start Volvo S60 2.4t

asked by on

I just bought a new alternator battery and starter for car jumped a friend car and now car only make one click when try to turn on. Any suggestions on problem

My car has 200000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Considering that all those parts were just replaced I would recommend retracing your steps to determine if any loose connections exist anywhere. If the battery connections are loose this can cause the vehicle to make a click sound but not have enough power to start the vehicle.
