    If the battery does'nt have enough power to turn the starter over then all you will get is the electrical clicking noise.

    This is a loud Click noise from the front of the car. Had it first hand 2 weeks ago as the car was blottoe'd! Quick charge and it will be sound if its from the front.

    Very flat batterys will not have enough power to switch any realys over fully, the clicking noise from the boot will more than likely be that
