My car decided not to start this morning. I have a 99 ATX. I turned the key and all I got was a rough clicking noise. It hasnt shown any signs of my fuel pump going out, but thats what it sounds like it is. Any thoughts?

Same thing happend to me about a week ago I had a dead cell in my battery. If you get it tested it might come up that it's good, so test it again. Lucky I have a MTX so I just kick started it ;)

Just jumpstart the car and get it to the autostore... They will check the battery and alternator for you to let you know if you have to replace both, or just the battery. It is definitely the battery though. Jumpstart it and you should be able to get it going.

i had a problem like that 4 times . . . in all different places . . . it turns out that my battery connecters were a little loose and slipping a little bit . . . so the next time my car wouldn't start i just tightened them up and it started . . . thats probably not your problem . . . but hey, might as well check

I had the same problem a week or so ago and the battery was dead so i jump started it and drove around all day then it started right up the next day when I took my lights out to do my angel eyes but left the car running while i took them out........then that morning I went to start it just to let it run cuz I currently have no license and it wouldnt even click it was deader than dead so I had to buy a new battery.....so your best bet is to buy a new batt

New Battery was exactly correct! I bought a new battery and replaced it and it started right up. Its started up a couple of times since, so it looks like the problem is fixed. Thanks for the help!

Yeah those silly cops and their stupid rules, haha. Sounds like your city is really tight with nothing to do but set up speed traps, or your peeling outta dunkin doughnuts, one or the other!
