My Saab 9 3 turbo will appear to have a dead battery. No starter clicks or dash lights. But if i keep trying after awhile it will start to click and lights begin flickering on the dash. if key is turned to the "on" position, the starter clicks and all dash light flicker. after doing this for some time the engine will finally turn over and start the car. Could this be the starter or something else?

Tried to start my 2006 Titan KC and it appeared to "suddenly" have a dead battery. The gauges all went berzerk for about 5 seconds and then appeared to reset with clicking and buzzing under the dash. I noticed the security light was continually flashing now. I jump started it and drove it home. After shutting it off, I put a meter on it and got 12.6 volts, but I know that can be deceiving. It now won't start again. It clicks once and zilch. I'm thinking bad battery?


The battery is only for getting the car started, when it is started the car runs off the altanator, if you were able to jump it and drive home but could not start is again the the battery might have a dead cell. and if you put a volt meter on it it w ... 2006 Nissan Titan
