Simplest way is to put the key into the ignition, and when the beeping starts press the 'unlock door' button on the keyfob. then start the car as normal.

You have a fault with the starter motor.That can drain the battery having a short in the motor.Changing the starter motor will solve your problem.

Starting issue

Hi Mark, I would agree with your diagnostics. If you have replaced the battery already before replacing the starter motor make sure all the connection including the negative connections are clean and making good contact. Once that has been done and still no improvement go for the starter motor. Regards John

2006 Kia Rio will not turn over

the timing belt will not have anything to do with the motor turning over trying to start. First make sure u do have a very strong battery. Could be a bad connection or a broken wire to starter also.

Car won't start but makes a grinding noise like when the car is started already

This sounds like a damaged starter drive gear and engine flywheel gear.

Making a real loud noise when it starts, dissipates after awhile

The bendix in your starter motor (which is the ring gear that pushes out to engage with the flywheel) is faulty and not retracting after the car starts. The starter may be able to be repaired by replacing the bendix, but if it was me, I'd just replace the whole starter motor right off the bat.

I got a 94 ford laser not starting (not flat bat)

At a time when it will not start, try hitting somewhere deep in the engine/transmission with a tool like a hammer..
or, if you can find where your starter motor is, tap there with the hammer.
The starter solenoid gets stuck and needs to be rebuilt/replaced.

1997 BMW316 compact wont start. Had to jump start it with leads recently but put it down to weather. Only use it during weeks so sometimes left a few days without driving. It ticks when trying to turn...

probably not starter but weak battery when battery low on charge you will hear solenoid on starter clicking when trying to start battery on cars do lose charge in frosty weather but it means battery old or cells in bat inop just replace bat

Intermittent starting problem.

I don't think the gearshit motion is related, I do think you have a starter drive issue or a solenoid problem.

Remove the starter & inspect the contacts inside the starter solenoid housing. If they are burnt and/or worn, you will get this condition. Replace the contacts and the plunger, or replace the starter. I change contacts in my shop 3-4 times a week. Quite a common failure. The clicking noise is the plunger hitting one contact, but not the other, due to wear.
