Engine wont turn over just get a clicking sound in engine bay for 30 sec. Then stops that when you turn key off and pull out.
Changed the ignition switch, starter relay, and starter. Battery Canadian tire tested and said battery was fine. Ready to burn it down. Soon

2014 chev trax 2 weeks before this issue key was getting stuck in ignition. Does not do that since this problem. Fuses are all good.

The battery may be fine but if there is a dirty connection that will do the same thing. Clean every connection between the battery and the starter, for both the positive and the negative. A bad connection can be so thin it LOOKS good. Clean them anyhow. You can use a volt meter to track down the bad connection.

The starter motor thinks it's not getting a good supply from the battery.
A good way to ensure no leakage of power is to cable direct from the
battery to the starter. (2) Start the car - switch on the headlamps - rev
the motor - if the lights brighten at the time of revving the battery is bung

To get the trax to start mechanic had to relearn the anti theft, it was starting up but would not stay running. 4 more hours it came down to corroded terminals 2 and would run now. No problems. Did not specify which ones. It was a chev dealer. Invoice vague. Just says replaced 2 corroded terminals. It runs now
