SOURCE: starter wont engage
The problem is either the starter solinoid (located on fender near battery) or you are not getting power to the "s" terminal on the starter solinoid from the ignition switch. If you follow the positive battery cable from the battery you'll follow it to the solinoid. Remove the small wire from the terminal marked "s" on the solinoid and using a screwdriver jump from "s" terminal (not the wire) to where positive battery cable connects to solinoid. (with battery connected). If starter doesn't do anything the solinoid is bad. If starter cranks then you are not getting voltage from ignition switch through "s" terminal wire.

SOURCE: 4x4 whining noise
First, Check the transmission fluid level. Add more if it is low! If the noise continues, change your transmission fluid and assure that your transmission fluid level is correct. When changing transmission fluid you must drop the pan on the bottom of the transmission(You will know it immediately upon climing under transmission) it usually has10-15 small bolts holding it in. CHANGE THE TRANSMISSION FILTER WHEN CHANGING THE FLUID! If this doesn't quiet or fix the problem, then it sounds like your synchronizers or the bands in your transmission are worn(Thus the reason the whine goes away when it hits second gear) but check the cheaper of the two problems first. The synchronizers or bands are unfortunately a repair shop problem. I ran one of my vehicles for about 25,000 miles before having it serviced but I can't guarantee you the same amount of luck. Good Luck

will it start with a jump ? if it does replace the battery and have the charging system tested, if it will not start with a jump then most likely you will need to replace the starter.
