Car is making a loud winding sound when trying to start but wont start


If the starter is spinning but the engine is not turning over then the starter solenoid is defective. You need a new starter.

Car wont start got ignition lights wont even turn over


Do the ignition lights go out when you try to turn it over? if so it sounds like a flat battery if not sounds like a starter motor problem, try a bump start - pushing it with a driver in it selecting second gear and lifting you foot of the clutch once pushed at speed

Check all battery connections, the ground stap from motor to body connection, battery ground to motor and body and battery to starter connections. It could be bad starter also

My 92 saab 9000 wont start. it makes a spinning sound sort of like a hairdryer. the battery is fine and i get the oil changed every 3000 miles and all the other fluids regularly checked. so what could it...


Either the timing belt/chain/gears has failed, which can really change the sound of cranking, but the engine visibly goes around.

If the engine does not turn (as it sounds is the case with your car), but the starter spins fast enough to be described as sounding like a hairdryer, then the starter drive is bad and the starter will need to be replaced or rebuilt.

The starter drive is turned by the starter motor, and the drive in turn turns the gear that engages the flywheel of the engine. The part that turns that gear will not let the starter motor be pushed by the engine — it has a one-way, overrunning clutch in it. If the engine got a chance to spin the starter, the starer would simply explode. It is maybe 10 or 15 to one between the engine. One good start using the gas pedal would spin the starter like 15 to 25 thousand RPM...

If that overrunning clutch fails the starter motor cannot spin the gear that turns the engine.

Hi,
Sounds like a bad starter relay. When you turn your key to start, current flows through a relay which in turns supplies 12 volts to the solenoid on your starter motor. As you alluded to , typically the common clicking sound that we all hear occasionally, is usually related to a flat battery or bad starter motor, but as you have had these checked (by a professional?) the only possibility is the relay that supplies 12 volts DC to your starter motor solenoid.
Thought you might find this interesting to help you understand ignition systems:

Truck wont turn over when trying to start it up,


Sounds like a fuel pump, I would have a shop check it out. Mine did the same thing when the fuel pump went out on my 01 Sierra. Good Luck

When ignition is switched on their is a whirring sound and engine wont turn over.and start.


It sound like the lobes on the starter's shaft have worn down and aren't making positive contact with the flywheel anymore. A "whirring sound" would be the starter motor spinning but not "catching". If it's a clicky/buzzing sound then it would more likely be the starter solenoid, low battery/bad alternator.
The "whirring" sound should still be winding down for just a second after you turn the key off. The "buzzing" symptom will stop instantly when you turn the key off.

Engine won't start


The fact the engine rotates indicates a good battery, that's eliminated from the search.
The problem is of Main/Auxiliary Power Supply. Trace the Main Battery cacle from the Starter, if it has more than 1 Power cable attached, looking for a connector break running back to the Power Box. If the Starter has only 1 supply cable, then look for a loose joint on that Battery to Power Box Connector Block, or broken 'Spade' connector. If again all appears ok, by using the "Idiot" diagram, on the Power Box and Fuse Box, pull each Maxi and Service Fuse and Relay in turn, looking for a Failure. Should this not detect the fault come back to me again.

The switch needs to be replaced and it requires some special tools if it's in the steering column. If it's on the floor any shade tree mechanic can do it.
