Question about 1997 Ford Mustang Cobra
Car was cranking fine then I shut it off went in a store and came out and it wouldn't turnover, so I thought the battery was dead so I got someone to jump me off. But when we put the cables on and waited a few minutes we tried it and it did the same thing everything came on and when I turned it over it turned over very slow then stopped and everything in the car shut of until I let the ignition go. So we let it charge for about ten more minutes and it was the same thing, it acted like it didn't have any cables Hooked to it. And my battery voltage gage still read low. And I also noticed when we turned it over the tensioner tightened and untightened but when I untightened the bel was loose.

The loud whine you speak of indicates one of two things a bad serpentine belt or alternator, The first thing would be to check the belt.Look for cracks worn spots or glazing. If the belt looks ok then take the belt off and start the engine for a minute or so and listen for noise.

Hey, 2 words.....Voltage Regulator! i had this problem and before you spend too much, check and make sure that your fan is grounded b/c most must be and then try an actual Diagnosas check normally around $80 but is does pin point whats wrong. Either Voltage regulator or you have a short.

its the starter the solenoid is grounded though the starter when you put positive power to
the solenoid its grounded through the starter windings. when brush's start waring out
the stater cannot keep the currant constant under the load of starting the engine. but out of the car
the starter will run. if you bypass the solenoid it can not engage the flywheel and the starter
it will spin. It's the starter and get a new solenoid too.

SOURCE: car wont start, acts like
Check the battery +12v power connection to the starter is in good order,
Check the ground connection between the battery negative and the engine/starter motor is robust and intact.
If no problem with above, replace the starter motor.
