    Bad Battery?

    I was working on my car today listening to the radio and then all of the sudden my gauges went crazy including my speedometer. I turn the power off and then turned the key to the on position and the speedometer was clicking. When I tried to start it I could hear a clicking from the starter but no turnover. Is this just a bad battery or something else I need to worry about?

    Sounds like you probably drained the battery like I did last week when also working on my car and listening to the radio. I took it (battery) up to autozone and had it charged/tested and it was dead and made sense, since I didn't know the battery was over 5 years old. So unless your battery is old like mine was, then have you tried just jumping it?

    It did turn out to be the battery. I took it to autozone and I found out the battery was really old. I just didnt think a battery would die like that from me just listening to music. Alls good now
