      Question Car randomly refuse to start

      I am having this problem for few days now. It randomly refuse to start. I just hear a single click. Battery seems good I think. With radio, AC or lights around 14V. The car is not even 5yrs old but I do lot of small distance and lots of start/stop. Could it be the starter ? I hope it is some loose connection or rust which is causing it.

      Wow just saw this video. My car is making the exact same sound but it happens randomly, it is not dead. I am giving the car for service tomorrow. Any idea how much they are going to charge me for diagnosing and fixing this issue

      Very informative. I learned a lot in this video

      Check the trigger wire to the starter motor if corroded or loose. Then check the earth wire from the battery to the chassis. If one of these, you can do it yourself in a few minutes.

      Probably I should have checked with some local mechanic too.

      The service guy even before checking said it could be battery problem as it is pretty common problem. Later he called and confirmed that rest is fine just the battery was giving trouble. So I hesitatingly asked him to put the new battery. According to 12V device my old battery was suppose to be good. I thought battery last for 5yrs and he was like anything over 2yrs is considered good

      I got the amaron flo 35Ah battery. I hope it is much better than OEM one.
