Usually that just means the battery is dead. It's trying to crank the starter but doesn't have enough power. Try jumping it from another car and see if that starts it.
When a grinding noise is detected first locate the area of the car it is being generated from. Most grinding noises will be being generated while driving, if you are having a hard time detecting the location of the grinding sound, have a helper ride along in the rear seat to give a new perspective on the origin of the grinding noise. A grinding noise can be generated by many things from worn out brake pads to axle bearing failure. Once a grinding sound has been detected action must
Can be a dead battery, corroded battery terminals, or in some instances a bad starter.
Replace the coolant temp sensor.
It could be the starter solenoid
Typically, a Click-click-click noise when attempting to start a vehicle is the sure sign of either a dead battery or a loose battery connection. Try tightening the battery terminal connections. If this doesn't help, you may need a new battery. A jump start will avoid a towing expense.
if there is backfire, check the exhaust restriction....
WHAT DOES THE CAR DO WHEN YOU TRY TO START IT? NOTHING? JUST CRANKS? CLICKS,FAST/SINGLE?
broken stsarter or ring gear.
my BMW does not start it just makes a click noise
If the grinding noise is heard only when starting the car, the problem is probably worn bushings. When the bushings wear out, the armature inside the starter will "sag" and grind against the inside of the starter as it spins, causing the grinding noise you hear. This condition is called "starter drag". Eventually, as the bushings keep wearing, the armature will not spin at all. If you are mechanically inclined, you can purchase a starter kit and do the repairs yourself. If not, it would be wise to replace the starter before you become stranded somewhere.
see if it will turn over if there is no grinding noise then u need a new starter
The starter should only be making noise if you attempt to start the car and the starter is going bad. It is possible that the remote starter is bypassing the mechanical starter. Starters are very easy to replace. Be sure to disconnect the car battery before doing so.
If it is a high pitch noise and the tractor does not start, your battery might be too weak. Check the water level in the battery.
I WOULD START WITH THE WATER PUMP. THEY CAN MAKE A GRINDING SOUND AND CAUSE THE CAR TO OVER HEAT PREVENTING IT FROM RESTARTING UNTIL IT COOLS DOWN. SOME WATER PUMPS HAVE A WEEP HOLE (USUALLY ON THE BOTTOM). WHEN THE PUMP STARTS TO CRAP OUT COOLANT WILL LEAK THROUGH THE HOLE.
You need a new starter, or a new ring gear. Or both.
cars tend too
The grinding noise is from the the pads being gone and rotors being grinded away. Unless it was just some rust on the rotors from sitting for days.
Don't ignore that kind of sound. Find out what is causing it and replace or repair the faulty part. A "grinding noise" can be caused by an alternator, water pump, idler pulley, heater fan motor, air pump or any of a long list of components, many of which can cause some serious problems if they seize or come apart.
do you mean it cranks, but will not start?
