Clueless... I own a 95 Passport and for some reason my car would start but before I could even put it in drive, the car shut off on me and this continued to happen until a couple of days later when I tried to start it again it didnt even turn over this time and there was a loud clicking noise from my engine and everytime I try to start the car I always hear the clicking. So is there any chance that if I was to fix the clicking, my car would start up again or are the problems entirely different t

Typically, if I keep trying the key it will start on the third or fourth try. Last week, however, it wouldn't start at all.

I have a 2003 N16 Nissan Pulsar sedan, 1.8L vehicle. Sometimes, when I insert my car keys into the ignition, and switch the car on, it doesnt start, and the car is making noises (trying to "rev"), but the car does not start. I then take the key out and try to start it a few times without success. However, I do notice, when I turn the key once to the first click, it makes a "click" noise, and then the car actually starts up normally. This is not the first time it has happened, and it seems to

2004 Sebring 2.7L. The car was running fine with no apparent problems. I turned the car off for a few minutes to get gas. When I went to start the car again, it wouldn't start at all. No clicking, very dim lights. I tried jumping 3 times. It would start, then die. The third time, I revved the engine a bit to try to keep it running. while revving, lights on the dash would flicker and the gauges were jumping a bit. car still died once I stopped revving and tried to drive.

2000 Olds intrigue: When i turn the key nothing happened. All the lights came on (like they would if it normally started). There was no clicking noise - nothing. I tried shifting the car from park thru the gears and back to park - nothing. I waited for a couple of hours and tried again and at first try - nothing, but turned the key a few more times and it started. I drove the car home, turned it off and started it several times without issue. This is the first time this has happened.

Intermittently the car won't start. sometimes when turning key over I hear clicking noise and sometimes this will happen 2-5 times consecutively. other times it will fire up right away. other times turn key over, I hear click, try again and car will start but it almost seems that the battery is dying. If it is a stater problem, can I buy a brush/contact rebuild kit?

Car alarm I tried to start my 96 Jetta Trek after it hadn't been run for a few weeks. It just went "click,click,click" and I tried a couple more times and then the alarm started going off!

I have a 2001 IS 300 with 160,000 mi. I was having trouble starting the car in the morning where it would take 2 or 3 tries to get it to turn over.

I just started my car and heard an extra noise from the engine that sounded bad (louder, kind of grinding and high-speed whirring) so I turned the car off but the noise continued. It fluctuated a little bit, but not based on anything I did. After turning the car off, it would not start again. There was no clicking noise or any attempt to turn over. The extra noise in the engine continued until I unhooked the battery, and started up again as soon as I tried to reconnect it. Smoke was coming
