Car would not start yesterday morning, the initial symptoms pointed to a under charged battery, I replaced the battery (under warranty) and the car still will not start. There is a click noise when you press the start button (and all the interior lights and chimes are working and appear to be strong)but nothing happens.... help! I am thinking maybe the starter but before I just start paying to replace things I am hoping someone can offer some advice or advice on how to test the symptoms. I don't have a lot of cash to spend right now, it's been a rough month, and now I am stuck with a car that won't start. Any advice would be appreciated.
