11. How old is the car battery?

A car battery can source enough current to run the radio and not have anywhere near enough to turn over the engine.

Is this an engine sound, or is the ticking sound reminiscent of a starter solenoid that keeps energizing and dropping out?

I've also known it to happen that the battery is just great, but a bad connection won't let the current through.
