Car wont start!!!!!

So I think it might be the battery but I have to wait to see because I dont have anyone to jump my car but I left the power on for less than an hour while doing stuff and then when I went to start it theres just this loud clicking noise coming from the engine bay. Everything powers on but the car wont start. Also when I try starting it my door locks will unlock and lock.

Its all good just needed a jump. Guess I gotta go get a new battery soon.

Yeah get a new battery. It should last longer than an hour of use. I would keep mine on in the summer for lie 3 hours while I washed and waxed

If it's more than five years old, replace it. You can baby and doctor the one you have but eventually it's going to cause you grief at the worst time possible.

Ya I still had an AC Delco battery so I ditched that and got a battery from Walmart with a warranty didn't know that is was the battery at first because my old car never did that when I had to get a new battery for my civic.

Did you make sure to get the battery with the vent?

It's to vent toxic fumes outside the car so it doesn't seep into the seating area.

The toxic fumes is Hydrogen, it can cause explosions if vented wrong.
