    A multiple tick is usually the Battery. I was a wrecker operator for 10 years. Jump start it. Leave the cables on for 10 min before you start to give enough power and time for push start to recognize key.

    I remember you said that you replaced the battery. Still, it's best to remove that as the possible cause by making a check with a voltmeter, especially when trying to start the engine. A bad battery is an easy fix. If it's something else, it can get tricky and expensive.

    yep, I was supposed to... but i didn't because i was thinking that i might still get the last juice from my OEM. hehe i just changed the battery today. Hoping nothing else caused it not to work.

    So is it confirmed that if you leave your headlights on all night by accident that the battery will drain to zero?

    Because most modern cars will turn the headlights off automatically after a set period of time

    And what about the interior dome light?
