When I turn the key, there is sometimes a clicking noise. Othertimes,
there is nothing.
Friday we got a battery charger and charged the new battery overnight.
Saturday, we put it back on and the car started up right away and we
took it on a drive. We came back home and a went out a few hours
later. The car still started. In the morning, however, the car would
not start again.
