Our 2006 Chevy Cobalt is having starting problems. The vehicle will not start the engine even though there is battery voltage present(headlights turns on) but there is a loud clicking/tapping sound coming fron the engine compartment when the ignition key is turn on.

My 1993 Honda Accord has a loud buzzing sound from near the glove box, from what appears to be the heater directional control or blower, but the buzz starts immediately when the ignition switch is turned on, with the engine running or not, and with the heater blower running or not. It's electrical-related, because the turn signal causes a slight simultaneous variation in sound pitch, probably because of voltage variation. Running the engine also raises the pitch, for probably the same reason. Th
