    Default Stranded Car Won't Start Please Help

    Try to start my car today and it won't start. Turning the key all the way to start the car just makes a clicking noise and all of the interior lights go dim. Same is true if I turn on the accessory switch and run the headlights. If I turn on the accessory and press the brake pedal, the radio and all lights turn off for a second then turn back on.

    How can I start my car? I'm stuck at friend's house for today. I really want to go home!

    Um obviously your battery is probably dead, get your friend to jump you.

    Sounds like a dead battery. Have your friend help you jump start it or if you have a manual, push (compression) start it. Instead of going home, go have your battery and charging system checked so you don't get home and get stranded.

    You might simply have a loose battery terminal or it may be time for a new battery or alternator.

    Yeah it was a loose terminal. Crazy how such a simple thing could cause so much trouble. Thanks to all for replying so quickly.

    This just struck me as funny... I didn't read it as a "jump start"...

    Hahaha ... well, getting your friend to jump you would certainly help you forget about your car trouble! Hahaha!

    You pervert, Kylemorg!

    Glad you got your car running, Sephiro499
