    Is my battery dead, or is it something else?

    So I got home last night after having my new turbo and stuff installed, and it drove fine on the way home. I went to start it this morning and it won't turn over. It just does this really fast RAT-A-TAT-TAT-TAT-TAT sound that comes from the turbo side of the car. The guys at the shop told me it sounds like it could be my battery, but I tried jumping it just now, and still it does the same noise with no difference. Is my battery shot or is it something else??

    Is it really cold where you live? The stocker only has 356cca which isn't shat. Mine is an 04 xt with stock battery and it took a little to turn over. I replaced it with an optima red top and haven't had a problem since.

    I went down to the nearby autozone, and got a new battery. That seemed to do the trick! Started right up so disregard this thread.
