My car has 192 thousand miles on it, and 2 weeks ago I replaced the alternator, and today at work I was going to go out for lunch and turned the key, heard two clicks and then nothing. The battery works, I ordered a starter from autozone, I just need to know where it is and what im gunna need to change it.
any help would be greatly appreciated.
