HELP!!

Ok so I thought I had this problem before... the last time it didn't start all I did was charge the battery...

So this time I thought it was the battery again and I bought a whole new battery and the car still doesn't start...

Actually, this time I noticed a difference. When I try to start the car, right when I turn the key there's one "click" that's coming from somewhere in the engine I think...

Any clues as to what this might be ?

HELP!!!:crybaby2: :confused:

was the new battery precharged, if you have a multimeter, (cheap) the voltage should read above 13 volts or take it to autozone etc, to check, a click is usually low voltage to starter solenoid , it clicks when engaged, but not enough voltage to turn motor, also corroded or dirty connections, easy fix if thats it. starters get dirty, you dont give the year of your car, the spring inside sometimes sticks(in US known as the "bendix") a little grease and youre good to go, if youre not handy under the car probably best left to mechanic, or bad starter , hard to say.
