My car won't start. What might be wrong?

There may be a variety of reasons you car won't start.

First, if your car is silent when you turn the key in the ignition - check your battery. If the battery looks corroded, the issue may be your battery. Also, be sure there aren't any loose or unconnected cables around the battery.

If you car makes a clicking noise when you try to start it, again check the battery and battery connections.

If your car engine turns over when you try to crank the car, but the car won't start - check your fuel supply. Another option is to check your spark plugs.
