    Car stalled earlier today while I was turning into walmart. Wouldn't do ANYTHING including dash lights. Finally figured out the positive battery terminal was literally melted so replaced it and now got dashlights and sounds etc but car just clicks when I try to start it. Any ideas? I know catalytic converter needs replaced but its been fine with no issues. Its a 2005 Chrysler Pacifica

    Get your head out of white supremacist politics, learn some real stuff, get a better job, buy a better car.

    Lefties never surprise me. Evil to the end.

    Have you tested the battery? Might have burned out the alternator and battery.

    Did you know that 95% of all Chryslers are still on the road?

    The other 5% made it home.............

    I was gonna ask if you charged it before leaving the house, but then I reached the part about it being a 2005 Chrysler Pacifica.

    Could be bad wiring, could be a spark plug gone bad, your alternator might have bit the dust. You might even need a new battery.

    Can you shift gears at all?

    Try to get a jump, first. Then a new battery if that doesn't work, then a new alternator if that doesn't work. After that, it's the starter solenoid, and then the starter.

    When an Engine Won't Crank, But the Lights and Radio Work. There are a number of ways to tackle a problem like this, but the most likely culprits are a blown fuse or fusible link, bad starter, bad ignition switch, or a dead car battery.
