When i try to start my 2000 rav4, i get a loud high pitch squeel for about 15 seconds. It would start before but now it just ticks once and does nothing. Radio and headlights work, dash lights work, the whole 9 yards, just doesnt start. Any ideas at all?

Sounds like a bad starter to me.

Does everything go dim when you get the click? Could have been an alternator issues or slipping belt causing the squeal leaving you with a battery capable of basic lighting but not enough to supply the draw from the starter.
