Car wont start on cold days

Hey. You have to check a little bit more to see what's missing to start the engine. When you turn the key on until the instrument panel lights up do you hear a humming noise for about 4 seconds?

2003 Hyundai Elantra won't start !!!

Hey , you know troubled "Strarters" are funny things, "like a broken clock, they are right twice a day !!" There's a little starter drive inside that thing as complicated as he..(you know !!) One thing that I have had the "It doesn't start, it does start bit" from this winter was my battery. I got so ticked that I went & bought a used one from Kijiji for $50. You know what? "It's still in my TRUNK !!!" A lot of places will check your battery for free. Check your battery, it's connections, any acid at the terminals? One tes I have used, for free is "Can you boost another guy's car with your battery, and the car not running?" No Luck, then see about when it's running. When you get into your car, are the "Door ajar" etc. lights bright, or kind of dim compared to when " The Beast" is running? Som e simple tips, maybe not applicable, but come for my favourite price, "FREE".
When I'm at a cash & I'm asked "How'd you like to pay sir?" I like to answer "Reluctantly !!"
Good Luck !
