Starting problems

'05 wee. 70k mi. Fresh battery. Will not turn over. Starter only clicks as if
battery was dying. Anyone have this issue and how was it resolved?

Battery

Not sure what a "fresh" battery means. I have had batteries that meter @ 12 volts but do not have enough amp to crank it. How old is the battery? If you are sure you have a good battery I would start looking at the battery connects & battery cable connections for being loose or corroded, even the starter connections. Good luck & hope you find it fast.

I replaced the battery with a brand new one thinking it was an amperage issue
