Unhappy 1998 Monteṛ buzzing sound and no start

Greetings all,

When I turn the key in ignition to start my 1998 montero base 3.5L there is a buzzing sound from the under the glove compartment and the starter doesn't even crank.

A little History,

Three weeks ago i left the lights on and the battery depleted enough to activate the alarm.

Couldn't reset the alarm like you can with most alarms but the AAA tow truck guy got the car started and i drove home no problem.

After two weeks of not driving it, i went to drive it and it wouldn't engage into the D drive gear. i disconnected the battery for 15 minutes while i took out all fuses and put them back in, none were burnt. When i tried it it worked like a champ.

After one week of not driving today i went to drive it it gives me a buzzing sound from the glove box and no start at all, not even a feeble try.

what should i look into? Any relays?

how do i take out the computer? to check inside? where is it and how do i take it out?

Thanks all.
RB

A buzzing sound in engine bay ... starter solenoid not engaging.

From glove box ... no idea ... maybe alarm not disengaging and therefor no start?

Try taking glove box out.

It seems like the buzzing is coming from something inside the HVAC core assembly. now i need to figure out how to take that apart to see what exactly is it that buzzes.

Thank you.

Hmmm ... might be worth taking out fuse for that and see if it starts then.

If it does you might have a short there draining all the battery power - no start.

A guess would be the blower fan bearings might be shot which causes the blower motor to try and spin but there is so much force it cannot do it. Try turning on/off the fan and changing the speed to see if it has any effect on the noise.
