Battery full, car does not start
I need opinions everyone! My car just clicks whenever I try to start it but the battery is full. I cleaned the connectors and wires to make sure it had a good connection. I'm thinking it's the starter, but has anyone had this problem or know what it may be?

If the rest of your car still gets power, the problem is probably your starter.

If the rest of your car does not get power, check your alternator.

But a rapid "clicking noise" when you turn your key, is a sign that your starter needs replacing.

Could be starter, could be a short, your battery could have insufficient cc amps. Or, you're engine could be locked. That happened to me. Everything worked but the starter just clicked when I turned the key. Spun bearing. Was the beginning of the dark age. Well hope it's not that.
