I tried to start my car today, and all i heard was a click, and then nothing. I had somebody push my car (it's a manual) to get it to start. once i got it to work, we tried to start it again, and nothing. We thought it was the battery, so later I took the battery out and to Autozone to get it tested. They said the battery was fine, and when we put it back in, the car started normally 5 times in a row. Any Ideas?

I could be wrong, but all of the terminals to the battery look perfect. Are we talking about just the battery connections or something else? I'll already say 'sorry' for not knowing more about cars...just want to cover all my bases. Thanks!

Is your anti-theft light blinking in the dash when this happens? If so, the anti-theft is detecting a malfuction in your ignitions switch and causes it not to work but if you let your car set for around 15 or 20 mins. with the keys out of the ingnition and the doors shut, the anti theft will reset and you will be able to start your car...of course until the next time it happens. If so you will need to have your ignitions switch replaced, my 05' cobalt was doing this for well over a year before the dealership finally tried replacing it. Hope this helps
