    sounds like the starter motor is not retracting quick enough
    .

  •  

    Which noise, there are so many…

    •  

      The buzzing crow noise in the end after engine starts

      •  

        Like nugs said above, if that is the one you are referring to, it's hard to tell from a video, but sounds like a starter motor bearing.

        Take it to someone who can open the bonut and have a proper listen. It's not real accurate recording it with a phone from inside the car and posting it on the internet.

          Check the 2nd video link pls.

            @salrock: I checked it. Definitely the Pochard. Thanks for clarifying.

            @salrock: Again, starter motor issues. Short, raspy and soon as the engine starts, it's gone.

            Do you need to diagnose it for your mechanic? Do you need some confirmation bias or a written permission slip to take it to a mechanic to get it looked at?

            We can't fix it for you and the person that can will listen to it anyway to make sure.

            This sounds like getting it fixed, just with extra steps…

              @pegaxs: Issue only happens in morning during cold start and not every time hence unable to show to mechanic first hand . Thanks for your comment . I will drop the car at mechanic to have look.

        buzzing crow noise

        Crows are more of a cawww kraaaaa

        Your sound is more of a gghhrrwww which is closer to the Madagascan Pochard than an Australian Crow.

          I think OP was referring to the noise they made when they heard something expensive going wrong with their car… And that has more of a crow sound…

          "Faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaark"

          Did it sound like a chicken?

          •  

            @endotherm: That was gone by then and was last seen on the other side of the road

    Guys what's this sound when starting the car ?

    That's the cat, asleep on the manifold

    Two step solution:

    1. Close drivers door and put seatbelt on first to get rid of that annoying buzzer

    2. Turn on radio and increase volume to mask starter motor noise on start up

    Drive away. Happy days.

    Fault solenoid on the starter motor not retracting the starter cog quickly enough.

    You do not need a new starter motor, just getting the solenoid replaced will be fine.
    You'll want to get the flywheel teeth inspected when they have the starter out to see if there was any damage to it. At the same time they'll be able to see any damage to the starter cog.

    If the flywheel teeth are damaged, you'll need to get that fixed too as it may catch on the cog as it is trying to retract.

      Nicely explained . Thanks

  •  

    You're not holding the key on crank for too long are you? Have you tried letting go of the key as soon as the engine catches?

    •  

      Not at all . That's what I thought too

    •  

      Not an issue with modern cars. You can hold the key on start all day long (though not desirable) and starter motor will still automatically disengage.

      •  

        Most new cars that still have a key start, won't engage the starter motor if the engine is already running.

        You also don't have to keep cranking with the key until it starts, the car does that for you these days too.

          Isn't that what I said?

            @MS Paint: Did I disagree with you?

            I just expanded.

              @MnGQ: I was confused because you replied to me.

              I am easily confused.

    It's probably the Bendix drive on your starter motor.

    If you are mechanically inclined, and have the tools, puller etc., you can fix it yourself.

    I have the exactly same issue with this car model. I turn ignition to 1 and wait for all the beeping to stop and then start the car, it works for me.

    •  

      Does it happen to you on cold start only ? For me yes and not every time

      •  

        Same with me as well. Only on cold start and not every time.

    •  

      Probably because fuel pump has primed the lines and it starts a little quicker but I could be wrong IANAM

      •  

        What I'm doing is just a work around, probably the issue could be related to starter motor as mentioned by others.

  •  

    I have a 2010 accord (v6).
    Sounded familliar to me, my alternator was making similar sounds upon startup.
    Failed not long after.
    If you've not replaced your alternator, probably a good time to start planning for it.

  •  

    Could be the drive belt tensioner bearing or a drive belt idler bearing (if it has one). Very hard to hear.

  •  

    Starter motor. Around $300 supply & fit.

    They say you have to remove the manifold but it's possible to do it without manifold removal

  •  

    Looks like a neglected car posing a danger toward all road users.
    It's not a Xmas tree… these lights means something, and usually important: LIKE YOUR BRAKES
