  • my last car was a side-mount (I think) and sometimes the connectors would loosen. so it wouldn't start. when they were tightened up it started just fine

  • Try to turn in your headlights and turn the key. If they dim when you do then its your battery if they dont then its your starter.
    SO has been working on cars for 10+ yrs. Its his job.
