Q: Car makes whirring noise and car doesn't start.

asked by on

Car does not start. It makes a whirring noise and dashboard lights come on.

I would have the battery tested by a certified technician such as one from Your Mechanic. It sounds like the battery may be dead but they also need to determine if the charging system is working correctly.
