Anyway, when I try to start it with the hood closed, I get nothing. With the hood open I get a buzzing noise. The "door open" light and alarm work with the key in, the radio works, but the headlights don't. When I try the headlights (no key) I get a buzzing in the headlight relay that builds up into a clicking noise. No dim lights- just nothing.
If it was the alternator, shouldn't I see a weak battery?
Checking the battery with a multimeter, it reads 12.65 Volts, so I didn't want to try jumping it or recharging the battery. I cleaned the corrosion off the battery terminals, but no change.
If it was the starter, shouldn't the headlights work fine?
What am I missing or are my assumptions just wrong?
have the same problem?
