Re: Grinding Noise w/Turn of Key....Nothing

Sounds like the starter solenoid. A near-dead battery may not give you a second
or third attempt. Could also be in the wiring/ground. I have a droF that does
the same thing. I ran a ground cable from the starter to the chassis and never
had another problem.
