    So today my car got stuck at work simply because it would not start. We tried jumpstarting it it cracks for a second then gives out. When starting without the cables it clicks then shuts off. If you have any advice please come my way!! Thanks in advance.

    Check all battery connections terminals free of corrosion and tightness on the terminals grounds also

    Check out all of those connections
    Even to the starter
    The battery needs at least 12. 60 to 13 volts to start if you don't have that at the battery try another battery
    If the battery has that voltage and drops while starting could be a bad battery
