no crank, rapid starter relay click, will jump start
okay guys, im new here. i dont do facebook and i dont even own a cell phone so im hoping you guys are a huge help to me. my wifes car sat for a couple of months this summer, i just put tires on it (the reason it sat for a while were the tires) and i went to fire it up to take it to the car wash. well, it wouldnt start. battery was dead, so i charged it up with jumpers. took about 20min to get it juiced up to start. took it the the car wash, washed it, then it wouldnt start again but this time the starter relay is clicking really rapidly. i cleaned the terminals, the battery is only a year old. It jumped a lot more quickly this time but after i turned it off it wont start again. do you think the battery went bad when it sat, or the alt is bad, or the actual terminal wires need replaced possibly? its definitely a power issue and it isnt the ignition switch because i had to replace that already so i know how it acts, and it wont jump when that is out. any advice would be a big help, thank you.
