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?
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.
