umm more info... sounds..... halts... etc........ cant help with "wont start"


Does it make any clicking noise? If it clicks but does not turn over it could be your starter. Check your battery for 12 volts and have a friend check it while you turn the ignition, if it drops lower than 9 volts, get a new battery. If it turns over and makes the whirring noise, you could have engine trouble. If there's no sound at all check your electrical connections.

a whirring noise means its that damn cold out.
