    car clicks and wont start up

    im sure i could solve this issue if i were home, but its my wife describing it so im a little freaked out. All of the electronics turn on, but at ignition it just clicks and wont start up. Im guessing dead battery but am not for sure. I really hope its not my alternator

    Check for loose/corroded connections on the battery and get the battery tested, then go from there.

    Just clicks and no start? Everything powers up fine otherwise? You can do a simple battery check by trying to start the car with headlights on. If they stay pretty bright when trying to crank, then the battery is probably ok. The no-start you describe sounds like a bad spot on the starter. If you can get underneath and hit it with a hammer or something, while someone else is has the key in the crank position, it may have a few starts left this way. Make sure they don't run you over!!!!
