Double check the connections to the battery and the starter. You didn't get an advance auto starter did you?

Try and disconnect your Edge, and see what it does, for S&G's

it could still be your batteries but its hard to know without testing them unless you have a way of getting a hold of a tester that will load them and test the CCA.

Disconnect the cooling fan clutch and try it again. When the fan clutch shorts out it won't let it crank.


Also, near the blower motor at the passenger side of the engine compartment is a single wire connector,(i believe the wire is green and yellow). You can disconnect it and touch it to the bolt on the positive battery terminal. This will rule out the rest of the wiring because from this connector the wire goes straight to the starter solenoid. If it cranks, then suspect the transmission range sensor or fan clutch.

I've seen many fan clutches cause this concern so this would be my first guess.

test voltage at the starter with a dmm, sounds like you have a short somewhere in the system. I've jumped a few starters but do so at your own risk.

Try to locate the clicking sound. Is it a relay, solenoid, or the starter itself? I'm hoping you didn't hydro-lock the engine.
