engine misfiring on down side of rpm's and stalls at times
2003 Hyundai Accent. New battery installed but when you try and start the car all the lights come on and it clicks but engine won’t turn over.
There may be a few different reasons the engine won’t turn over.
- The “NEW” battery is not fully charged
- Battery cables or connections are corroded
- Starter relay faulty
- Burglar alarm relay activated or faulty
- Wiring harness damage
Generally when the ignition key is turned to the “START” position and you here several clicks(click, click, click) it indicates a weak or dead battery. If you only get one click and then nothing, it indicates loose wiring or corrosion. A soft click may be the relays. A hard click would indicate a faulty starter. You can check for battery voltage at the “S” terminal on the starter when the key is held in the “START” position. If you see battery voltage from a fully charged battery at the “S” terminal, replace the starter assembly.
