High pitched tone when I try to star 91 Nissan Hardbody

Asked by GuruHSQMF Jul 20, 2019 at 09:53 PM about the 1991 Nissan Pickup

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 91 Nissan Hardbody that is used only occasionally. It used to be very faithful, but would quit turning over about a year ago. I'm finally getting around to figuring out what the problem might be. Just got the battery charged up. Now when I turn the key, there is a continuous high pitched tone. The ignition lights on the dash all light up. There is no sound of the starter; I suspect that is the problem.
But is this screech suppose to alert to some problem?  

1 Answer


Not sure on the noise. Sitting that long, some wires might have corroded. Also drain the fuel tank and add new gasoline before starting.
