car wont turn over
« on: February 14, 2013, 11:04:32 AM »
So my car won't turn over it just clicks. I've replaced the starter and main relay and im still getting the same result. Any other suggestions? The battery is only 3 months old and terminals are clean.

Charge your battery if you don't have a charger take it to autozone it takes an hour or so then put it in your car if it starts pull the pos+ cable of the battery if it dies your alternator is bad if it stays running take it to autozone have then test your alternator to see what it's charging at

and post your findings

or check your grounding to your tranny... if your starter doesnt have a good ground it wont turn over....
grounding is just as inportant as power.

Make sure you have the right battery, and check your flywheel for damage, and try to spin your motor to make sure its not seazed.
