I put the charger on the battery will say fully charged. But then when I try to start it all I get is a growl. Tried to jump start no luck. Could it be the battery, alternator, starter, or sensor, or where do I look. It was running fine with no problems. The battery is about 4-5 years old.
My car ran fine and the next A.M. it didn't. When I turn key it growls and quite on 1997 Buick Park Avenue

OK, Thanks for the information. I think I will start with the battery and hope that it will take care of the problem first and then if that doesn't work than I will have to figure out something else as the car is in the garage and won't start. But thanks again for your help. You have no idea how much help you were (with my husband)...
