Clean and tighten the battery cables as it sounds like a bad connection, But it might be time for a new battery

I have cleaned all connections tried jumping over with cables engines moves very little.still clicking noise from starter and silenoid.

Have the battery load tested at the auto parts store (napa) because if the battery is too far gone it won't jump

But would that cause the vehicle to stall out?
Replyhemicuda, March 25, 2010, 11:14Master
Hard to tell because if the battery is low or it lost a cell stange things can happen, Have the battery load tested at a auto parts store

i tried a new battery,changed the starter and selonoid .Starter sounds like it kicks out but not rotating motor. motor moves just slightly.Motor didn't make any noise or smoke any before hand.

problem solved;My power steering locked up on me causing the motor not to turn.Was not enough power in battery also. Thanks to all.

I just had to replace my starter. The silenoid still made a single click noise but the motor on the starter was bad
