The lights are on in the car but when when I turn the key on the car it does nothing (does not click over)?
Do you

Hi,

The first thing we need to confirm is that the battery is good. Follow this link to perform a basic load test on the battery. This is very easy to do and can be done at home with no tools.

Make sure the battery terminals are both clean and tight. Take a look through this link as well:

Also, you indicated the lights in the vehicle work but there is no response when you turn the key. Do the lights dim when the key is in the start position? Let me know.

I will watch for your reply.

Take care,

Joe
