When I sometimes turn the Key on my 2000 Jimmy the engine won't turn over but the starter motor makes a loud high pitched noise like it's spinning freely?

I have a 2004 Dodge Neon and I just replaced the battery and for some reason sometimes when I'm running a lot of errands when I turn it off it won't turn on again. It won't even make any noises...


Something is wrong in your start circuit. From battery to ignition switch, and ending at the starter solenoid. You would have to start checking for where power is lost between the switch and the starter. If you have power to the starter solenoid on the small wire at the starter (can check with a test light while someone holds the key in start), then the starter would need testing.

Make sure your steering wheel isn't locked. Sometimes a key won't turn until you jiggle the wheel while trying to turn the key.

Starter making whirring noise.


When you say it won't start you mean it won't crank, right ?

If you have a duralast starter from auto zone, that may be the problem.
Aftermarket brand starters and alternators can be lemons sometimes.
A mechanic would check for voltage at the starter with the key in the on and start positions. Also check the ground connections.
Its possible the starter is not getting full battery voltage for some reason.

Car will not start, just makes a whirring noise when I try to start it,the check engine light comes on.


There is most likely a problem with your starter -- if it is not grabbing the engine to turn it over when you turn the key, the starter motor will spin (giving you the whirring noise) but the engine will not move. First things first ... have someone turn the key, and hit your starter with a stick or something ... sometimes this will free up whatever part is not working proper5ly, and you won't have to replace your whole starter. If hitting your starter doesn't work ... and if you are good with cars, try replacing the starter and see if that helps.
Hopefully those will help ... if not, you will probably have to take the car to a mechanic to get it fixed, as there are several other parts that could be causing the issue -- but they are hard to get to and require some experience to know what you are looking for.

Hi,from the clues you give I guess that the starter motor is in need of a service (worn brush gear) I presume that when it does not start that the engine does not make a cranking noise.
If the engine is cranking but failing to fire up, then it could be anything from the fuel pressure pump to the engine control system. there is a lot of clever stuff going on when you start your engine. Some simple things you should try first. Check visually that all vacuum hoses and wiring is secure and in good visual order( dodgy looking wires are prone to intermittent failure!... Do this next time it fails to start and recheck after gently adjusting ? wd 40 may ease problem temp. Also check service of spark plugs especially correct gap.
Make a note of engine temp/ and air temp. loose wires are usually more loose in cold mornings!.. starting enrichment may not be sufficient with a wide plug gap. Check battery for full power output on starting. will it pull the car on the starter /
