Grinding when turning key on to start ignition


Dodges have a gear reduction in the starter, usually. It could be wearing out. Have it checked out at a rebuild shop.

I am hearing a grinding noise when turning the ignition on my 2005 dodge ram 1500.Truck is automatic and runs fine when in driving.


Have an auto electrician look at the problem but I suspect that the starter solenoid is starting the armature spinning before the pinion gear is properly engaged in the flywheel teeth. If so the starter can be repaired either by a new solenoid or adjusting the pinion movement before the armature gets power.

My 97 audi a6 wont start or jump start.


It sounds like you have a couple of problems going on. First if your car wont start it could be the starter but if there is no noise you may have an ignition problem. Ignition problems usually occur in the steering wheel column. Try tilting your stearing wheel up and down a couple of times. If that does not work it might be your starter if it is you can get under your car and arc it. Or it could be your altenator but the only way to test that is if you take it off and take it to napa or something . I hope it is your altenator because it is usually a quick and cheep fix. good luck.

Grinding noise immediately after start up - (starter engaged?)


Sounds like your starter is slow to disengage , but I would check with someone who is handy with cars , not necessarily a mechanic , just someone who can confirm your assessment and my suspicion. If that's the case , you might have to replace the starter. This problem could damage the ring gear on the engine which would be a lot of $ to have replaced.

Sounds like an electrical mess up. Im not too familiar with ford and newer vehicles. It could be the starter getting jambed. The make a grinding/clicking noise..Something like a selenoid? Just ideas..

Car won't start after loud grinding noise when turning the key. Now grinding is gone and there's nothing after turning key.


had the car been running rough before hand?

It may well be a snapped con rod. Would allow the engine to turn for a while until it jams by the crankshaft.

If the car is manual it may be the clutch plate but with your foot on the clutch it shouldnt stop it.

S-10 won't start


Try replacing the fuel sending unit first. Then check your ignition relays. Are you ruining any codes. because for the most part your truck will tell you whats wrong if your pump is bad it should run a low fuel pressure code and if there is something with the ignition you might run a oxygen sensor code. when you turn it over do you smell gas.
