Solenoid makes this sound when battery is too low or starter is bad. First try jumping the car to see if battery is low.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6222268-engine_doesnt_crank_turn_over . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

Battery is weak. Take it to a store like Autozone and have it checked. Could be the battery is at the end of its service life, or the battery cables are loose or corroded. The alternator could not be charging the battery correctly either.

Sounds like you need an ignition. Turn your key to the on position and cross the terminals on your starter with a screwdriver. Do this several times (Have somebody turn the key off and back to the n position). If it starts like this every time You need to replace the ignition. Or you can replace the whole column, sometimes this is easier then replacing just the ignition.

Some it starts


my 97 geo metro will not start when I turn the ignition key. The radio will work, buzzer etc. I can jump it with another car and it will start and run. If I turn ignition key to start, there is absolutely no crank, no click, no nothing. Could this be ignition module, bad battery, voltage regulator, starter?

Ignition key cylinder


You have to have the ignition lock exposed, take the covers off above and below the lock body that holds the cylinder.
Insert the key fully into the keyway, and turn it to ACC. On the ignition lock body, press on the "stop pin", that pokes out of the lack body, above where the cylinder is housed. Press on the "stop-pin", and extract the cylinder. If the key can not be turn ed to ACC, the cylinder will not come out.
Thanks for choosing FixYa. Please let me know if this solves your problem.
