I went out to start my 2010 Ford Edge and when I turned it over, it wouldn't start but made a loud 'CLICK,CLICK,CLICK" noise. I noticed all of the programmed radio stations were gone, the clock time was gone and the CD player kept trying to find a CD. I thought the battery, but perhaps an alternator?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA JB, You should start by taking a look at the battery, this may be your root issue.

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd I'm going to GUESS the starter. To find out what the problem really is, I recommend you tow it into your regular auto technicians shop and get it tested & fixed.

Barb Petrey, President - DBK Enterprises Inc at Jiffy Lube Battery is either dead or one of the cables is loose. If your artery is 3-4 years old you probably need a new battery

Helaine Kurot, Owner/Technician at 360 Automotive Greetings, It sounds like the battery voltage is low. First make sure the battery terminals are clean and tight. If they are, then have your battery checked, and if needed replaced. If it happens again after replacing the battery, have a repair shop check it for an electrical draw.

Panel of  Automotive Women Speakers, Panel of  Automotive Women Speakers at, Inc. JB Ramos, I would suggest taking it to a local shop to get the battery tested. When they do this, they provide a print out from the battery testing machine that gives you information on the condition of your battery, alternator, and starter. That will quickly let you know what the problem is.
