Help with starting 2004 pontiac sunfire

Asked by Nov 29, 2016 at 02:17 PM about the 2004 Pontiac Sunfire Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Have a 2004 pontiac sunfire. Four months
ago my starter went out and I replaced it
with a used one bought from a salvage
yard. Two weeks ago I went to start my car
up after being out of town a week and the
battery was dead so I charged the battery
and when a tried to start it it would turn
over but not fire up and the starter was
making a high pitch whine as it was turning
over. So I replaced that starter with another
one from a salvage yard and it's still
making that noise and won't fire up. Could
it still be the starter or something elsr

Maybe the battery is weak or the starter solenoid is bad. Clean and tighten the battery terminals and cable ends.
