If the battery is fine , then it will either be a faulty starter motor or a problem with the ignition switch, did you have the battery checked for Amperage ? if you just were able to power the lights etc this could still mean the battery isn't holding enough charge, another reason for a battery fault would be the alternator not charging at the correct rate, especially at night when using lights, heater if cold , all these will take charge away from battery if alternator fault/drive belt to loose .Have you tried to jump start the vehicle , if it starts with a jump start then definately a problem with the battery/charging system, hope this helps

SOURCE: High pitch noise when turn key to start / engine not turning over

Check your battery first. Cold weather does horrible things to car batteries... if it's more of a grinding sound I would say that your starter gear is bad. I believe they call it a ring gear? I had a similar problem with a kushman scooter that I use to deliver snowcones through the neighborhoods. It has teeth that need to engage and if those teeth have been grinded down it will have a hard time engaging....

SOURCE: 2002 Saturn SL1 - won't start, turn over, starts fine with jump

Have the alternator and battery checked. The battery may not be holding a charge. The alternator may not be charging the battery,it should put out between 14 and 15 volts,any less the alternator is bad.

hi from uk check the main lead from battery+positive to the starters solenoid is secure ? also there is a thin wire that also connects to solenoid on a terminal of its own this is the solenoid energizing wire that works starter when key start position is selected if all above is ok? then use a jump lead and connect one end to battery negative post then the other end of lead to a suitable earth point on engine ? then try starting? if it works/starts ? you have a bad earth connection to engine from battery negative lead check the earth lead connection at point on engine is clean/secure ? it usually is secured by bolt at point where engine and transmission connect ? hope this helps?

My Polo Playa 1.6 2002 was driving fine, just heard a loud bang (backfire) and car stalled . Will not start sounds like engine is not turning. What could be the issue?


check the timing belt has'nt snapped , do not try starting engine until you are sure the belt is in tact, if ok get the OBD codes read as will narrow down if a switch/sensor is at fault , if nothing shows check the cylinder compressions

I have a 2004 VW polo playa confortline and the headlights are both dead, there is no current on the fuses for the haedlamps, however the bulbs are fine and all else is fine?


Check the Headlight Relay by interchanging it with one that you know is good, [eg] the Starter Solenoid. If that cures the problem, there is only the cost of a realy.
