I have another question for my VDUB. Ok so my car wouldn't start, it would only make clicking noises, but whenever I boosted the car, it would start. Then, my Dad bought me a new battery, charged up and everything, and still, it only makes that clicking noise. Im still pretty new at cars, so Im wondering what the problem would be. Maybe the starter?

Ok does the alternator have anything to do with starting the car? Because I know for a fact that the battery is fully charged, so I think its the starter too. But I dont want to spend money only to find out it was the wrong one i paid for.

The alternator keeps the battery charged so if you have a full charge then the problem isn't with the alternator. The starter is most likely the problem.

If it sounds like a fast racheting sound, it's the starter, It happend to me in June. I replaced the battery and the starter
