This is a convenient time for this thread to pop up.
That noise you guys get where everything is cliking over and turning on/priming, in my car it is continuous.
If i leave the key in the on position before turning the engine over, it keeps clicking and whirring over and over continuously.. Also may be related to the fact that three times in the last couple of days my car has refused to start first try.

Haha yeah I'll be grabbing a new one after work tomorrow. Interesting fact about how I've been fixing the issue: disconnecting the negative terminal, shake the battery around a bit, re-connect negative terminal and away she goes.

Mark,

Glad this thread helped you out. This thread is over a year old though, there's no need to reply and revive it.

Actually Jordan, there WAS a need. It shows that Roadie/Mark searched before posting a new thread, and his post was on point with the topic at hand.

It is your post (and mine) that are unnecessarily bumping a year old thread to the top.
