The motor you hear is the fuel pump priming up. You may have a low battery due to the alternator not charging, or bad connections with the battery cables, may even have a bad battery cable. Try cleaning the battery terminals first, if it still does not start, try getting a jump. Then determine if the battery is good and check for the problems listed here.
