Your ignition switch is going bad. The strange noise is the starter remaining engaged and locked to the flywheel. Your best bet is to have the starter tested at your local auto parts store, to deduce that it is not, in fact, your starter.

Bcm problem?


This sounds like a you are having a voltage problem. Have the charging system checked. A bad battery or poor alternator output can cause this. When voltage starts dropping below about 9 volts all kinds of crazy electrical things can happen and they can be anything and anywhere.

Have the battery checked out, it can drain within minutes and it really is gone if you have dead cells that can't recharge. It will make your car click when trying to start or it could turn over slow or not make any sound. Good Luck.

OCCASIONALLY STRANGE NOISE WHEN STARTING I DO HAVE A NEW BATTERY IN THE VEHICLE


If the noise sounds like a grinding/fast spining noise you probably have lost a tooth or two off the flywheel. To check, when it makes that noise stop trying to start it and if standard, put in gear move the car and try again. Or, if automatic put the car in R and move it. In both cases move it means like 4"s. If the noise goes away it is the flywheel teeth.
