shrieking noise on turning the key
This has happened twice in the last week. Cold start. Key to accessory-on, no problem. Keep turning to ignition, and I hear a high pitched noise - the kind that you get when you try to start a car with the starter motor when the car is already started.... But of course in my instance it is occurring while the car hasn't yet started. I noticed that when it happens, the rev shoots up (yep, rev shoots up with just the turning of the key) to around 3-4k rpm... But the characteristic rumble you get when the engine actually starts is not actually present. The car doesn't start like this and I switch the key to off.
Try again the second time and then the car starts normally....
The two happens in happened scared the hell out of me.... the noise is a high pitched shriek...
Anyone came across this before?
