so my car wouldn't start one day so i replaced the alternator and pulled the starter off it was still good. then alternator was shot so i figured it would be an easy fix. put everything back together and charged the battery. it wouldn't turn over so i jumped it thinking the obvious. i left it running for 30 mins. it runs fine, all the lights work stereo everything works, but as soon as i turn the car off it won't turn over, but i know the battery is getting a charge and the solenoid in the starter is clicking, so it is getting a feed also. is there anything else i could do?

My dads caprice did that. I think you need a bigger/ fully charged battery..... The clicking means it's getting power but it obviously doesnt have enough charge to turn the motor over.

hrrmmm.....
my toyota corolla did that and it turned out to be the starter. it would go click-click-click-click-click-click-click-click-click-click-click-click-click-click-click-click-then BAM, it would finally start up. well it seems like a similar problem...
