geo storm wont start

1992 Storm that wont start. When you turn the key, you get kind of a click and that is it. I believe the battery is good, but not 100% sure. What does it sound like? Thanks

Low battery voltage/loose-corroded battery connections or a bad starter have similar symptoms. You will need to ensure the battery in question is up to full charge and also that your battery connections are clean and tight or it will be difficult to diagnose. You can either remove the battery and take it somewhere to have it checked or you can get someone to try to jump it. Caution: Use care when attempting a jump start; incorrect use of jumper cables can cause the battery to explode. Doesn't happen often, but it does occur. As an alternative, call a local towing company to come out and attempt the jump start. If you still only get a click with a good battery, or with a jump, and the battery terminals are clean and tight, the starter will be prime suspect.
