car wont start

i have a 1996 chevy camaro rs v6-3.8 that i bought for my wife a few months ago and this morning when she was fixing to leave out for work she said it would not start so i went out there to see what she was talking about and when you turn the ignition power on is shows the battery is barely above the red mark on the column. well anyways i had the battery checked and it showed that it was good!!! i then thought maybe it could be the starter not working, well when you try to start it all i get is 1 click noise and thats it? so i dont think it could be the starter...anyone ever had the same problem? oh yeah i also checked all fuses in it thanks

Re: car wont start

If VATS was working, it should not have allowed the starter to energize, period.
If starter is making a click/clunk with ign key in start position, then VATS is being satisfied and allowing the starter to energize.

It will be interesting to read what dealer has to say.
Your symptoms read like a dirty battery cable connection at either end.

Re: car wont start

it is normal for the volt gauge to be in the red zone with the key in the on position
